Not exactly a system administrator problem, I'll admit - however, ServerFault seems like the only active place where sysadmins are gathering, bar usenet. As part of the South Australian Certificate of Education, I have to do workplace experience/investigation. If anyone could answer even some of the questions it would be greatly appreciated.
Job duties and tasks?
Conditions of employment (rates of pay, holidays, leave etc)?
Career Pathways (where does the job lead?)?
Education and training required?
Useful subject choices?
Effect of job on your lifestyle (eg night/shift work, travel time, health issues etc)?
Emplyment prospects in the near future?
I left out the question - Why this job is one in which you are interested - since that is really a question only I can answer. However if you want to give me your answer to that as well, I would be interested to know why you are interested in being a Sysadmin.
