I did my 2 week work experience at a University's IT department (helpdesk). Basically i served staff and students with helpdesk problems, and did pc maintenance ie, helping move monitors round buildings. pc checks. Which was log on, any spy ware?, check add remove programs for something that shouldnt be, check internet works, check it can print, and so on. Spend a day with Operations who look after the running of the servers and users, so looking at network structure, and doing odd simple management jobs. Spend a day with Infrastructure, who setup servers and cables, looking at the cabling how the network works.

It was a very enjoyable 2 weeks and productive as i am now employed by said university, with them paying for my degree, when i finish alevels this year.
