Frequently Asked Questions

What Does a Desktop Support Technician Do?

Computer support specialists resolve software and hardware-related issues for companies or end-users. They also help set up new devices, install new programs, and train company employees or customers to use IT equipment.

Some, called computer network support specialists, maintain the firm’s local area networks (LANs), wide area networks (WANs), and internet systems. Others, known as computer user support specialists, troubleshoot issues for non-IT consumers.

What Is the Difference Between Helpdesk and Desktop Support?

It’s a difference in semantics and it depends on the company. Helpdesk is the general place people go to for information and assistance. Desktop support deals with IT issues only.

But what about IT Helpdesk? 

This is where it’s pure semantics.

Helpdesk usually refers to supporting people by phone, email, or live chat (without leaving your desk). In a desktop support job, on the other hand, you might have to physically look over hardware, go out on the floor to resolve issues, install new software, and train people to use it. Sometimes, you can’t do desktop support jobs from home but you can do help desk as telework.

What Does an IT Support Specialist Do?

This technician’s primary duty is supporting computer users by offering assistance with both hardware and software. They can also be tasked with maintaining and upgrading systems, overseeing client and internal data, as well as documenting and appropriately escalating more complex technical issues.

Where Do I Find Desktop Support Jobs Near Me? 

Browse through job postings on your preferred platform. IT jobs are rarely in papers, though (does anybody still look for jobs in the paper anyway?)

Our directory is a solid starting point!

How Long Does It Take to Become a Computer Support Specialist?

You can apply today for entry-level IT support specialist jobs at a call center (with only high school). Most computer support jobs, however, require some postsecondary education.

A bachelor’s degree in computer science takes at least three years (but usually it’s four years). An associate’s degree, which some employers also accept, takes two years.

If you choose the high school + certifications (A+, MTA, Apple Certification) route, you can prepare and pass your exams in less than a year. This is also the cheapest option.

What Education Is Needed for a Computer Support Specialist?

This is a popular question among those looking for desktop support jobs. High school is enough for Level 1 support (these are the first people a client will contact). Any IT-related classes will help you stand out from other candidates.

For Level 2 and above, as well as more technical jobs, an associate’s or bachelor’s degree is required. Employers prefer relevant fields such as Computer Science. If the position is not too tech-dense, other college degrees are also acceptable.

Also consider CompTIA A+, Microsoft Technology Associate (MTA), and Apple Care Certifications to prove your skills.
