Help Desk Jobs

Help desk and technical support specialists provide technical assistance, support and advice to customers and other users. Technical support specialists answer technical support inquires and may run automatic diagnostics programs to resolve problems. In addition, technical support specialists oversee the daily performance of their company’s computer systems and evaluate the usefulness of software programs. Help desk technicians field telephone calls and e-mail messages from customers who are seeking guidance on technical problems. In responding to these requests for guidance, help desk technicians must listen carefully to the customer, ask questions to diagnose the nature of the problem, and then walk the customer through the problem-solving steps.
