Tuesday was spent working on my report, as I have now completed the project set for me by Adam. There are a couple of sections I am struggling with, as there just isn’t as much to say about them. The two sections I have completed so far, Shadowing and Mapping have been relatively straight forward as that’s where the body of my work was done- I completed so much work in those sections! The others, which have me at a standstill are the induction/training, the alert prioritising and the section about SharePoint.
Wednesday was spent at Briscoes as I got called in to cover a shift. Everyone seems to be sick at the moment, which means lots of extra hours for me!
Thursday was spent back in the office, working on an array of tasks. I thought further into both my poster and report, while also sitting with a few of the DBAs and watching them work on a number of interesting problems.
Friday, my final day at SQL Services! I can’t believe that it has come by so fast! I have now almost completed my report, with only a few small sections left to work on. Very exciting stuff.
I wanted to take this opportunity to thank Adam at SQL Services for providing me with work placement, and also with endless support and guidance. I enjoyed my time at SQL Services and I have managed to gain some fantastic experience, extend my knowledge on databases, and so much more. I also need to say thanks to the DBAs who gave me so much of their time and knowledge – Tim, Rosie, Kathryn, Guy and Slade.
Thanks for reading and I hope that you have enjoyed reading about my work placement at SQL Services.
