Default Easy Tech Job

Hey guys, I just wanted to let you know that I just got a job with Staples as an Easy Technical Sales Associate. I am responsible for selling PC's, taking in computers to Repair them, and repairing them. Once I turn 18, the boss wants me to go on house calls and repair them on sight or set up new PC's on sight.

I'm liking it so far! I've sold a handful of laptops and protection plans with them, so that makes the boss happy

Congrats on the job! After working there to gain some experience you should be able to move on to higher level tech jobs.

My son just gave notice at Staples where he was the Easy Tech Expert (lead tech). He is taking a job with an IT services company where he will travel around in a company supplied vehicle to provide IT support at customer sites.

this. In the IT field, experience > education.

Congrats! Learn as much as you can!

Yup. Working in IT right now. 8+ years of experience since high school. Went to college for Business Administration and Social Work. I enjoyed my higher education--business classes were great, and social work is a field few appreciate (and I feel that universities should require the intro course for all undergrads)--but, there are days I do feel silly spending that money, considering I work in a field for which I have no degree. Ha!
