What do you like most about working at Atlas and in small business IT services?
I love working at Atlas because of the culture. It is positive, motivating and I can consider most everyone here a part of my support system. Everyone here wants you to be successful.
What advice would you give someone interested in pursuing a career in small business IT services?
It takes perseverance and the understanding that IT is a consistently evolving industry that you must stay on top of, or you’ll fall behind. It takes a lot of time and effort to be good at understanding technology and how it works in today’s world, in conjunction with the client’s needs/wants.
What’s the biggest work-related challenge you’ve ever faced and how did you overcome it?
At a former job, working with someone who intentionally tested my ability to handle workplace discomfort and tension. I started at the lowest level, letting the colleague know I did not appreciate or tolerate those behaviors and that any further action would be formally reported. I had this conversation with my direct supervisor, who served as the mediator to ensure the message was clear and concise. From there, I completed my time at that organization and left on good terms.
What’s the best piece of personal advice you’ve ever received, and why?
Practice self-awareness as often as possible. Every interaction can be an opportunity to make a difference in your life or even someone else’s life.
