My boss is the nicest man in the world but he just doesn’t understand the importance of technology. For example, the other day I told him we needed to get a t1 line at the office because the calls kept cutting out and he was so confused – he was like “a WHAT WHAT?” I mean, I don’t expect the guy to be a computer programmer or anything but we run a company that does 46% of its sales over the interent, how can yo be that ignorant when it comes to tech? We have an IT guy that comes in once a week for about 2 hours to look over our systems but I’m thinking about finding out if he’ll pay for me to take some tech classes at a local university. I think in time if I know how to do what the consultant is doing it can save the company money and I’ll be able to take those skills with me if and when I ever decide to change jobs.
