Systems Setup Specialists
If this career interests you, try to take any mechanics and
electronics classes that focus on understanding how complex
machinery works. These classes will introduce you to the basics of
reading flow charts and schematic drawings and understanding
technical documents. The ability to read these documents
efficiently and accurately is a prerequisite for computer setup
work. Don't forget to take computer classes, especially those that
explain the basic functioning of computer technology. English and
speech classes will also help you build your communication skills,
which is another important quality because setup specialists often
work closely with many different people. Finally, take business
classes to familiarize yourself with practices of the business
world. These classes will also be of help to you if you decide to
advance by starting your own business.
