On October 22 students of both Mr. Suter and Mrs. Klass' classes attended a tour of BGSU to learn more about jobs in the technology field. We talked to several different people about positions that the campus itself hired, and about courses they offered that could better prepare you for a job in that field.
First we toured the room that houses the entire school's network. It had rows and rows of hard drives and other equipment, as well as three giant cooling systems. They had organized the equipment into "hot" and "cold" aisles, so as to better control the temperature of the hardware and keep it from overheating. We talked to one of the people in charge of managing all this equipment, and he told us that the network they use is constantly expanding and increasing in size in order to keep up with the digital age. He also mentioned that for a job like his, the best kinds of skills to have are mostly logic and problem-solving based, and that English and documentation skills can also be very useful.
