For those of you who want to know why he asked. It is because he knows there are still holes in the network, and every time he complains to IT they go over his head and complain and nothing gets fixed. He wants me to try and get in the system and write up a report that he can show, so things do get fixed.
I also have the added benefit of using him as a reference, which for a student starting college with nothing on my resume, is pretty good.
And I do want to use this as an opportunity to learn, as this will me my area of study, and my career path.
