I have been working with computer technology/networking/security since I was in high school. This makes it around 25-30 years. When I was a teenager we had computers at home. I'm my family's IT and tech support for network, mobile devices, Internet of Things and other computer related issues. Every job I've worked at while a Graphic Designer I've been that companies IT department also using my skills and knowledge to keep computers and peripherals updated/troubleshooted. I have recently completed my CompTIA A+ (Core 1 and Core 2) certification and am looking for entry level IT Help Desk jobs that I feel I'm overqualified for but think it is the best/only way for me to take my career in this direction. I'm not getting any responses besides rejection emails and wonder what I need to do to get interviews to get in the door and then move my way up as I prove my worth. #jobsearch #workfromhome #advice #interview #helpdesk #it #troubleshooting #computers #security #networks

There are jobs out there that help desk people work from home. My last job their help desk people worked from home. That was a real estate title company. I worked from home half the time as an escrow closer.

Information Technology Specialist (Inventory Management/Computer Operator III)

Yours is a great foundation. Better if you have skill on networks and server managment (plan earning your CompTIA Network+). Computers don't go solo anymore, they're intermeshed with the Internet and everything you wish to connect to. Nevertheless, apply now; don't be shy. They'll train you on the job and you will begin to develop networks skills.

Oh, if you're in a military town or there's a federal building nearby, become a US citizen if you haven't yet, and earn your CompTIA Security+. Enterprise Service Desk Specialist positions pay very well.

After my first A; I realized that I could learn the material and provide additional learning/ leadership opportunities to myself and others. I was elected the President of the college's Computer Club (C5). Becoming involved with Student Government and presenting a plan to the department chair; C5 was able to acquire used computer parts. As a club, we were able to assemble desktop computers and us a Linux distro as the OS - Then, sell raffle tickets from the same computers, the club built. Because of the raffle(s), the C5 club grew in membership by 25% and revenue by 600%. Success came from allowing members to become leaders. Inspire creativity and focus with two goals in mind: Increase membership and revenue. Those were my best day(s) at #ClackamasCommunityCollege. #ClackamasCommunityCollegeComputerClub; #Leadership; #C5; #Computers; #Government; #President.
