Over the last week I’ve had a good time at Circle Cloud learning how IT infrastructure companies interact with their customers. Here is a breakdown of my week:
Day 1: I made a domain for my first time. Although it seems easy now I still really enjoyed learning how to do it. It’s quite simple but I would’ve had no clue where to start without the help from Circle Cloud’s employees.
Day 2: I spent most of my time building a computer; it was my first time attempting this. It’s one of the things I’ve always wanted to do so to accomplish it has been exciting for me.
Day 3: I made a video explaining how to set up a domain. Making a video with me speaking in it was honestly a weird experience. At first, I was having so much trouble with the opening 3 lines but then I managed the rest in one take. If you were thinking about making a video I’d recommend doing it on something you love as it will roll off the tongue that way. But if you do make one, do not listen to it back- It’ll make you cringe a lot! At least that’s what happened with me.
Day 4: I got to meet some customers and I must say it was fun. Although the most different part was seeing how the Circle Cloud employees presented their plan to the customer. Most tech people I’ve met can’t explain things very well to those who do not understand what they’re offering, so to see them do it so easily and naturally was useful.
Day 5: I wrote this here blog and fully built a computer. Writing a blog was something I had never done before so I was glad to be able to see how a modern company informs their customers about general business updates, products and services.
Overall, I’ve had a great time. I’ve learned a lot and I’ve had a lot of fun. Working with Circle Cloud has made me more open to considering my options in IT and computing. Thanks to the team for helping me throughout the week!
