I’m a computer technician. I’ve been in this industry for about seven years. The majority of my experience was with a large insurance organization, where I provided internal computer support and repairs to the employees working there. My work involved repairing, maintaining and training employees to ensure the company’s computers and related peripherals worked properly so everyone could do their job. The work I do is pretty specific and in many cases; those who require assistance with computer related problems often think computer technicians can fix any computer problem. That’s not always the case. Some computer technicians focus on software, hardware or their related equipment. We’re not all one in the same. Although I’m the proverbial “computer geek” that enjoys resolving computer problems, I’d rate my job a 6 on a scale of 1 to 10. Seems like a low rating, but people can get very upset when their computer breaks and it takes time to resolve the issue. Computer technicians in general can take on multiple projects, all of which are high priority.
