Technical support specialists are at the forefront of computer and technology
operations. They troubleshoot software, fix operating system issues, rebuild
computers, and perform general maintenance on computer devices. Technical
support specialists work in corporate offices, or as independent consultants and
business owners, or in big electronics stores (think Best Buy’s Geek Squad).
