Computer Support Service Owners

Overview

The owners of computer support services help businesses and individuals install and maintain computer hardware and software. They offer advice on what computers to purchase; they teach how to operate computers or software programs; and they assist with computer problems as they arise. There are approximately 770,000 computer support specialists in the industry, including technicians and entrepreneurs. Computer consultants either work out of their homes, or they rent office space. Though some of their assistance is offered over the phone or online, much of their work is performed on-site.
