Interstate Skills Training AKA Systems Bootcamp

IMH is taunting our techie knowledge-base this week as we flew in Trey from our Virginia Beach office to take the lead with training our new associates here in Los Angeles.

We have recently increased our Los Angeles division with new hires to manage our ever-growing server systems. Rather like Jordie LaForge heads up engineering of Star Trek, we had Trey to bring our guys up to speed with hands on training while under Nerf Gun attack from the marketing department.

His specialty is the systems-specific, advanced-level training, which comprises mostly of investigative analysis work to proactively reach out to our customers before they hit a resource issue. Our Systems team are the core the company stands on and will handle customers who may have advanced concerns like being unable to handle server problems themselves in case they couldn’t figure out their root access.

Trey is successfully flying home to Virginia Beach this evening after commenting

“Well the turbulent weather wasn’t expected from LA” – Yes we had ‘electrical storms’ here! “…and I think I successfully trained our systems core team to manage any high pressure situations” – (That marketing team improvised and simulated using Nerf guns from across the office heheh.)

The Apple Craze!

When working for a tech company, it’s pretty inevitable that you’ll run into a few tech gadget early adoptors. In our case, we have plenty of Apple enthusiasts that just “have to have” the latest releases of their products. If you’re an Apple enthusiast yourself or are simply aware of the latest Apple craze, then you know about the new iPad hype.

Bob and his new iPad

Well here at our office, our Director of Sales and Marketing, Bob, beat the rest of us to it.  He  purchased the new iPad during the online presale and received it on March 16th, the official retail release date. Guess it’s the better way to go to avoid standing in line with all the other Apple fanatics! However, it turned out that the line at the Manhattan Beach Apple store wasn’t too bad, according to another Apple enthusiast in the office who went out and bought the new Apple TV digital media receiver on his lunch break! Talk about Apple envy…he “had to have” a new Apple product as well!

I myself just joined in on the Apple craze and got the iPhone 4S a couple of months ago. Needless to say, it’s my new addiction…
