Starting Out in Computer Support Jobs

When you are starting out as a consultant looking to get involved with computer support jobs, you might only have basic desktop support level tech skills. But you have to make sure you get paying clients – computer support jobs that fit your current tech skills comfort level. Which clients should you pursue first?

You need to start out working with home offices and small stand-alone businesses and companies with very small peer-to-peer simple networks. This way you will get some paying clients as well as reference accounts.

One-Shot Deals Can Lead to Better Computer Support Jobs

Even if you start out by doing one-shot deals, you have to go beyond. Your business will be successful when it is built on recurring revenue that comes from retainer agreements and very complex dedicated server solutions. When you are starting out in the process of getting computer support jobs you can take on smaller accounts. But you are going to have to move towards more complex, more profitable and long-term clients.

Keep up the Learning Process to get More Computer Support Jobs

If you think your lack of tech training is keeping you from clients that need a lot more from you, you should save some time each week for training, even if it is only just two or three hours worth. You can look at tutorials and resource kits and also install the not-for-resale (NFR) software and break the installation so you can continue to practice the setup.
