Former Information Technology Student Now Laptop Manager at OSU Library
After completing college with a Business Administration degree, Eric Smith realized that he needed more job-specific skills. So Eric enrolled at Metro Tech to become a Desktop Support Technician and was concurrently enrolled at OSU-OKC for a degree in Computer Information Systems. While studying at Metro Tech, Eric received his A+ and Network+ certifications, knowing IT employers look for these type of certifications. Smith graduated from Metro Tech in May 2012 and moved to Stillwater, OK with his fiancé. There, Eric received a job at the Edmon Low Library at Oklahoma State University as a Laptop Manager. Eric said, “I really have enjoyed the work environment so far, as I get to mess with electronics and technology daily. The activities are not far from the work I did in class at Metro Tech.” He continued, “My Metro Tech instructor Dorothy Lyon-Lee worked effortlessly to provide an optimistic and positive learning environment for all their students.”
