In this video, Allen Johnson talks about how installing a modem in his personal computer, on the advice of a friend, saving him over $100.00 and how that kickstarted his career. Johnson started in network support which grew into a network administrator role in charge of IT.
After working as a network administrator, Johnson was presented an opportunity to work in IT auditing and discovered that he really enjoys it. After three to four years, Johnson wanted to work outside of the financial sector and, working with Gentis, landed a role as a Senior IT Auditor with Acosta. “That was a nice transition to learn different things…I’m still learning, I’ve grown a lot,” says Johnson.
