I'm applying for jobs right now, but I can't figure out for the life of me what to apply for. I'm thinking of doing something related to my experience with computers and the like. Any help?

Most placed will require a minimum of an A++ certification before they will hire you. Best best is to get a minimum wage job and study/save to take the certificate exam then apply at a repair shop.

If you're into programming, most people require some college or formal background.

A+ will certainly get your recognised and is easily passable cause it is easy peasy lemon squeezy.

If you have spare cash look to do a MCSE qualification, when you pass you have a chance to test Beta's of future Windows and Apps, also you get a snazzy briefcase type thing for your tools etc :P

But not only that it is more diverse than A+ and N+ together, so you learn more advanced networking skills and diagnosing skills using tools provided by MS in Windows' builds that are not necessarily well known.

As for a job, why not check a local PC repair shop or similar close by and ask for a part time job for a couple of months like a type of test phase, where the employer can see what you are like for those 2 months and if he is happy maybe take you on full time.

If you're not really worried about cash you could throw in an incentive to do 16 hours per week for free for 2 months like a volunteer position to sweeten the deal.

Remember volunteer positions are considered good enough to be technically employed and can be put into a Resume/CV and it would look like you are actively trying to improve yourself for full time employment.

This.

Or, if you're extremely lucky, start your own on-site repair company. Then undercut the big companies in the area. Practically runs itself after a while. But only if you're lucky, and willing to live in a gutter for about two years ), AND nobody else, locally anyway, has thought to do it. Just my two bits anyway.

Good luck, Whit3Ghost. Godspeed!
