Alisha Patel-Smith

 “I live at
West Felton, near Oswestry, and have joined PC Net as an administrative
assistant. I will be the first line of contact and support for clients.  My job involves looking after customers,
suppliers, engineers and business owners. I assign jobs to engineers, organise their
diaries and liaise with customers. I also raise quotes, order equipment and
organise paperwork for support contracts.  IT is a great industry to work in, it’s
an ever-changing environment and there is something new to learn every day.  Technology has come on a huge amount in
the last few years, from internet access to mobile phone evolution and social
networking platforms, to name but a few. The advance in technology has been
rapid, changing how we live and how we work.

This is my first experience in an IT
environment so just getting to know the business and learning the basics is a
challenge I’m looking forward to.  I believe IT is key in business
management and communication. It is a vital part of any business, increasing
productivity and efficiency. As technology continues to advance so will its
benefits within businesses, providing businesses are able to stay on top of and
keep up to date with the technology”

Matthew Forster

I live in Telford and have joined PCNet
as an apprentice IT technician. I have always been fascinated with IT. Ever
since I got my first computer I’ve enjoyed using and working with them and the
fact that I have always been a bit of a tinkerer definitely suited a role as an
IT technician.  I believe the future of IT with
businesses is that it will all become more cloud based and that eventually
nobody will host their own servers. For people like me that means things will
only get easier, as there will be less need for us to visit sites with bad
servers.  As someone who plays a lot of PC games, I
find the leaps in computer hardware have done amazing things for enthusiasts.
The ability to stream almost everything now makes the internet so accessible
for everyone and makes the computers of the 90s look like dinosaurs in

I think as an apprentice, what I’m really
looking forward to is being able to learn everything from my already highly
qualified colleagues, no-one explains something better than the people who do
it every day.
