If you're the go to computer fixer upper amongst your friends then you might want to look into a future in the world of computer repair instead of listing Rosedale homes for sale like you once wanted to do. Fixing your mom's laptop, telling your friend why their smartphone is on the fritz and how to fix it, or putting together your brother's old video game system for fun is rewarding and all but getting paid to do something you love is the sign of a perfect career.
If you're unsure of how to get a career in computer repair started we can help you out with that. Basically, you have two options; try to get a compute repair job first, possibly by helping out a small business such as a Toronto auto body shop with their computer problems as a way to get your foot in the door and then take a training course afterwards, or go the opposite route and get the training you need first to nab a higher profile and hopefully higher paying computer repair job later on.
The ideal answer is to do both if you don't have the time or money or to go to school for six months. While it might seem hard to balance both school and work at the same time, it's quite manageable as long as you know how to balance the two. The key is to make sure you take training courses that fit your schedule, which could be two classes a week or two weeks of classes per month while working your computer repair magic for a printing company in Toronto.
Another thing you can do that will allow you to both work and train simultaneously is to set up your own home office where you can work on 3D CAD drafting problems for school while also fixing a client's server problems. If your compute repair training courses are online then you can also use your office as your own little desk and spend as much time as you can to study and work!
Another important thing to remember is to focus on the skills you don't have to improve your overall level of computer repair knowledge. If you're a whiz when it comes to using aircraft scheduling software but lack the necessary skills to set up a wireless printer you need to find a course that will teach you what you need to know. Having knowledge in various facets of computer repair will make you more desirable to those hiring computer repair technicians and the more training you take the better off you'll be!
As long as you have the basic skills then anyone in need of computer repair help will want to hire you! Good luck with your potential new career!
