    My mom is a banker that deals with computers all day long. She uses them to keep track of who has an account and how much is in the account. Without technology, they would have right down all transactions that happen there.

    My mom is a supervisor of the billing department in an insurance company. She uses computers to manage multiple client's accounts. Without computers the company that she works for would be at a very high risk at closing.

  14. Joe interviewing Dad
    They have computers around every part of his job in UPS. Computers scan packages in our company so the customer can track the packages at all time. There is a computer in his truck that tells the company where he's at, or if there's a problem with the vehicle, so he can speak back and forth with anyone at the company at all times through a computer, and GPS shows where he is at. It makes his day a lot easier.
