I just had a problem with my computer here at work and I knew the problem and solution straight away but I do not have sufficient privileges to fix the error on my account so I had to contact IT to get it done.
It's taken the guy who came up to fix it over an hour to find the solution. I tried to tell him what to do but each time he just said "that won't work" and, you guessed it, his final solution what what I had been telling him all along.
It just frustrates me how I constantly get turned down for IT jobs because I "don't have enough experience" yet these people who obviously don't know solutions to the simplest of problems seem to get jobs in IT so easily.
I have even made a list for myself of problems with the IT system here which can be solved very easily. Probably not even a days work and the results would also mean their workload is reduced. I'm only on a 6 month contract with this job so I think I'm going to go down there on my last day and just list all the problems I've found which I have a solution to.
