IT System Specialist
I found myself as many did during the recession looking for a new career path later in life. I came across an internship within the IKEA IT group. Once I completed my internship I was offered a full-time position in IT Services. I really appreciated the diversity within the team in all its forms including age.
I started my IKEA IT position with the PC Support Group. My team was tasked to provide PC support to the service offices and store openings. I really enjoyed this role and later moved into supporting servers globally. I was really excited that my IKEA journey took me to other countries. I have traveled to Germany, China, and Sweden on numerous occasions and these experiences have greatly exceeded my expectations.
Like many other employees at IKEA, my journey continues to expand within the organization even after 13 years. I'm developing new skills and learning every day and look forward to the future.
