Sometimes it seems as if every day there�s another gadget. Televisions, MP3 players, DVD players,
VCRs, camcorders, computers � they�ve all become a part of our daily lives. And as electronics become more advanced, so do the skills needed to repair them when they break down. While much original manufacturing takes place overseas, repair work is usually done locally.
There are more options than you might think in the electronics and computer repair industry. Opportunities abound not only in small, local shops, but also in large,
multinational corporations, testing and repairing products under warranty. If you enjoy working with your hands and have an analytical mind and the patience to troubleshoot a device until you manage to get it fixed, a career in electronics or computer repair might be perfect.
One of the most important things to remember if you are pursuing a career in electronics and computer repair is how quickly the industry can change. To be successful in the long term, workers should be willing to keep abreast of changes in technology. Many career colleges offer not only the initial training in electronics and computer repair, but lifetime education classes which can be used to keep your knowledge current and your skills highly marketable.
