My current job is with Temple University’s Computer Recycling Center. I am in charge of maintaining inventory in a large database that consists of old computers, monitors, and other hardware that Temple is replacing. I go on weekly pickups around campus to help transport this equipment back to the recycling center, where it is tested to see if it is salvageable or not.
Through my work I get practice taking apart and rebuilding computers along with diagnosing and troubleshooting various hardware issues. The experience I have gained at the CRC has helped me obtain a better understanding of how computers work along with how to fix them if they don’t.
