Busy function: Satellite Telecommunications Administrator
Level of study: STI Electronics Baccalaureate
FingerInTheNet: Why did you choose this profession?
Jeremiah: I learned this trade in the Air Force. However, I didn't necessarily want to move on to a career in this field, but after learning, the field of satellite telecommunications – which is relatively unreachable because little known – interested me a lot, and once well affected in my unit, the job turned out to be much larger and more complex than I would have thought, which quickly fascinated me.
FingerInTheNet: How did you learn this trade?

Jeremiah: My business, like all IT and telecommunications professions, has always been and even more so in our ever-changing age. It is totally unthinkable to believe that our achievements will remain so, because everything evolves all the time. It is this aspect that I am particularly passionate about. In addition, today IT and telecommunications are essential links for any civil or military project, regardless of the industry, which gives these occupations a special importance.
FingerInTheNet: Do you have any advice for students who would like to do your job?
Jeremiah: This may sound contrary to what one would think, but I advise you not to go after the diplomas, but rather after the certifications, which they have real value with employers. The most important thing, however, will be practice!
