And i've helped build a fairly high end PC and got to learn about a lot of handy lil software and stuff. Well I guess I was doing a good job because my boss was talking to some poeple about me and some poeple have heard about me.

I got a offer to work at a laptop repair shop guy said he wants to see how good I am with laptops and he'd train me for 2 or so weeks, i'd build, and repair laptops, install sound systems, repair cell phone etc. He basically is a overall electroic guy said he has plently of business and when i'm ready to call him up
Well done, it sounds that you've found your niche in life, a rep point for you, & good luck.

Same here, I have a chance working at a PC shop as he only demands a computer savy. Certificates are not really needed. Tommorow, I am going to get the resume in. I am not letting this chance go.
