I am currently working as a Service Engineer at Microsoft, monitoring the health of SharePoint Online and mitigating customer impacting availability issues. It is a new role in IT, a cloud-based role.The reward and return on investment of the BSc Honours is invaluable. The hard work has been more than worth it and although there are new things to study from time to time due to the nature of the industry, this is exciting and can have a direct positive impact on your work. TU Dublin, Tallaght really helped me get going with my 6-month placement with Microsoft in 3rd year. I started as an intern in Microsoft immediately after finishing. My advice is be confident. We have the skills and qualifications from the course to equip us for any starting position out there.
As a Cloud Support Associate at AWS  Premium Support (EC2 Windows), I work as part of a multi-disciplinary Support Team assisting customers developing innovative and cutting-edge services and technologies built on top of Amazon Web Services Cloud Platform. Day to day tasks involve analysing, architecting, troubleshooting and optimizing several different platforms and infrastructures leveraging multiple AWS Services… I use the excellent technical skill set developed in IT Tallaght… to troubleshoot customer’s issues… studying computing gives you excellent graduate prospects. My current role came because I did a placement in Amazon AWS. TU Dublin, Tallaght has a good link with AWS which is very useful for students.
