Meet the Team: Anthony Payne
Meet Anthony Payne! Anthony has been part of the INT family for three years as a technology Consultant Manager and IT Specialist. Continue reading to find out more about how Anthony got into technology staffing, how his career began with INT, and what he finds the most exciting about his job.
What got you into technology staffing?
I’ve been in the technology staffing industry for about three years. My career in this industry actually started with a contract position with INT and a banking institution. Once my contract ended, INT Technologies offered me a full-time position within the company. This was the start of my career in technology staffing and I’ve enjoyed it ever since.
Many employees at INT have several years of experience in the staffing industry and they have so much knowledge about the industry and technology. It’s great working with them and discussing the ins and outs of technology. Every day, I’m given new opportunities to learn something new and exciting through the conversations I have with INT employees and consultants. I’ve always had an interest in technology, in fact, I received my bachelor’s degree in video game design. The knowledge I gained from studying this really helped me get into the field of technology.
Along with being a technology consultant manager, I frequently work with the IT side of the company. I set up computers, troubleshoot with the internal employees of INT, and more. I really enjoy doing this because it allows me to help other employees with their technology issues.
What do you find the most exciting about working with clients and staff on their technology?
Something I find very exciting is working with so many different people. I work with many consultants that are involved in different fields of technology and I love hearing about the projects that they work on. One particular project I find very interesting that one of our consultants is involved in is the coding that powers traffic lights. Prior to this project, the system that was being used to control the traffic lights was very outdated and the goal was to update everything with modern technology. The consultant on this project discussed with me how he contributed to this project and the processes involved. I really enjoy hearing about all of the projects our consultants and clients have. It’s neat to hear about the different technology involved and it also allows me to learn something new.
What is it about INT that makes you want to come into work every day?
Working as a technology consultant manager at INT is great because I get to work with individuals in many different environments. This includes engineers, developers, and more. Before the COVID-19 pandemic, I had the opportunity to visit consultants at our client’s locations and observe everything. It was always great to be able to go to new places and see our clients’ fascinating technology projects. Even now, I’m still able to talk on the phone with consultants and hear about new projects and technologies.
At INT, every day is different. Each day has new tasks and challenges and it always keeps me interested. This makes it very refreshing coming into work every day.
Anthony’s Favorite Quotes:
One of my Favorite quotes is from Dale Carnegie, he was an American writer and lecturer, and the developer of courses in self-improvement, salesmanship, corporate training, public speaking, and interpersonal skills. But the quote is “It is not what you have, or who you are, or where you are, or what you are doing that makes you happy or unhappy. It is what you think about.” And this is so true in life and business it all starts with what and how we think!
