Finding Computer Repair Employment | Top Search Tips
Don’t make the mistake of searching for computer repair employment using one search technique. You should always use a range of methods to ensure you are covering all the bases. Here I’ll show you some of the search techniques that can be used.
The large majority of people looking for computer service technician work always start with job search engines. Do not filter results according to the job title as a technician may be referred to as a computer repair specialist, computer service engineer, etc. These however will only show a small percentage of roles currently available on the market.
A greater number of roles are actually advertised on corporate websites only (i.e. not on job sites). As a result you need to be tracking down which firms can offer computer repair employment and applying to them directly. This can be done using employment agencies (always worthwhile doing) but you should also be researching what companies work in this industry.
The starting point for doing this research is to use the Yellow Pages to look up computer repair services. You could also add to this list of companies using advertisements in computer magazines and by doing an online search for computer repair shops based near you. Don’t forget that many large companies will also need IT maintenance staff to repair their infrastructure so keep a broad search based on your skill set rather than on job titles alone.
Once you have this list of companies you should start to review their job sections/pages on their websites. If suitable computer service technician work is available then apply directly using the medium they suggest (most probably e-mail). Even if the site details no computer repair employment that you consider yourself suitable for it is still worth e-mailing in your resume with a covering letter to express your interest in any future roles they may consider you suitable for.
