Five Questions with Back Up Engineer, Karl Lauger
We talk regularly about the many advantages of being a Queen consultant. But don’t just take our word for it. Some of our current and former consultants have agreed to share their experiences with us over the coming weeks. First up is Karl Lauger, who graciously took the time to sit down with us and talk about being a Backup Engineer with a Queen client.
What is a typical day like?
A typical day is a combination of troubleshooting, system upgrades, and planning for the next initiatives to address data protection issues across the enterprise. Corporate data is constantly growing and changing. Methods of protecting that data need to adapt and evolve over time to keep pace with the data growth.
What is the most rewarding thing about what you do?
Working with colleagues to develop solutions to challenging technical problems.
What would you say to someone considering going into your role for the first time?
Learn to pay attention to detail. Don’t take anything for granted. Never trust a computer.
Why is working with a consulting firm like Queen beneficial?
Queen is a quality organization with a great team that is always on top of everything. Their responses to my questions are always timely, clear, concise, and professional.
What would you say to someone considering a contract role for the first time?
A contract role can be a good way to offer something positive to a client who needs help while also providing yourself with opportunities to learn. Even if you stay within your area of expertise you will have the opportunity to learn something new with every assignment, because every organization does things a little bit differently.
