Ruben’s Answer

Hi Julia, I work with and manage teams that spend a lot of time performing cable installations. There is a lot of preparation work that takes place. Knowing what type of cable to use based on drawings and specification. That means you need to learn how to interpret drawings. Also, knowing if the area you are working in has any hazards such as open floors, high voltage or other safety hazards. Also, if there is potential for the the person running cable to cause an outage of services within the area they are working in. Properly crimping connectors labeling cables and terminating them in the equipment they are to be connected to. Hope this helps.

Bryant’s Answer

I worked in data centers as a SME for nearly a decade and I wanted to chime in here. Ruben is correct that what makes a good operator is preparation and coordination. Second if there is a bundle of cables don't get out your scissors :D. When you work with a Data Center, which is where you would typically find this work now that companies are moving away from privately hosted spaces, you must understand your environment and what impact you will have. The utmost care and reiteration is needed sometimes as if you pull the wrong cable you might take down production processes. At the end of the day it is installing cables and racking server paired with preparation and coordination. If you enjoy being the backbone of connectivity this would be a solid gig!
