As an information technology technician for 3M, I am responsible for installing, maintaining, securing and resolving issues associated with 3M's computer and network systems. My customers are the many 3M employees that I interact with daily. I served for four years in the Air Force on active duty, and I am currently a cyber specialist with the Air National Guard. As a cyber specialist, I also work on computer and network systems. Because of the similar roles in my military and civilian careers, the information technology skills and knowledge attained from my military training have had a direct impact on being successful at 3M within the Information Technology sector.
