Hassan’s Answer

Depending on the employer, you many not need a degree. Look for jobs in your area that peek your interest and see what skills they require.

However, I assume that many such jobs require hands on experience from prior jobs or training classes. Also, there are lots of training and certification programs for Computer Repair and Maintenance.


Thank you very much Richie R.

Rebecca’s Answer

It depends on what the needs of the computer needs you are referring to. If you are referring to the computer needs itself, you may not require a particular degree or an associate degree/diploma is sufficient. However, if you are referring to the needs in corporates, banks, etc., it may require Computer Science or Computer Engineering degree.
In business world, the users may have requirement on either software (e.g. apps, web pages, application systems, etc.) and hardwares. It depends on which aspect you are interested on and hence you can take the relevant subjects as you major. Suggest you can explore more online or opportunities to be an intern.
Hope this helps! Good Luck!

I would recommend a few computer certifications or at a minimum; a 2 year Associates Degree in a field that you are interested. To help people with computers can offer a ton of different opportunities and not all jobs will require a degree; but will require prior experience. There is computer science, computer repair and lots of other programs. Start researching what job you are interested in, the job requirements and if you decide to enroll in college; be sure to seek out a advisor to help you map out the best course of action to reach your goal.

Thank you very much Richie R.

You're very welcome. A final thought is research top tech companies where you live and see if any of them offer internships or programs for continuing education. Good Luck! 💡(E-le-tha) Beckford-Smith, MBA
