Every Day Is Different

You might start each help call by asking the user to turn their computers off then on again. After that, there’s no telling. Recent updates, uninstalled patches, confusing manuals—you’ll face mysteries. You’ll dig deep into your knowledge well to find solutions. It’s a rewarding and exciting experience, especially with the different fields you can enter.
