Interview Questions / Abbreviations Help
This is my 1st post and I apologise if these questions have been asked before.
Wednesday I have an interview coming up in a local CofE High School, Accrington. I came across the forums through google, and have looked through as many as I could! Job spec is "IT Technician"
I have some questions if someone can help?
What does SMT stand for? And SLT? I saw both terms in the forums.
I have looked at the BECTA web site to find out if they define it and I have tried google define:smt and define:SLT but no joy.
Interview sheet says there will be a 15 minute practical test. I have been trying to work out if it will be a practical in terms of messing around with broken PCs, making cat 5 or 6 cables, switch configuraation, or something with AD or another server... I have done MCSA in 2k but it was a year or three ago and I don't use it in my current role. Been reading directory services admin book just in case. Job description and person spec don't mention any servers explicitly but mentions email accounts.
I am doing a BSc in computing at present so hopefully that will count in my favour. One of the things I put on the application form was that I was interesting in developing an IT eqpt database as at my current place has nothing in place, non-standardised machines, etc.
It's hopefully going to be my 1st desktop support job, as I have only done helpdesk work so far - though my current role is a 2nd line job with remote diags and access, it's bespoke software.
Hoping to do well as can build a pc and install an OS in less than a couple hours. Have 4 years technical experience in the work place and 5+ years home enthusiast before that.
