  1. Well, I joined a Geek Squad Reddit group and was told that the two in-store Geek Squad jobs (as opposed to jobs that require a lot of driving around) are Consultation Agent and Advanced Repair Agent. The latter is listed as an entry-level job, but requires "6+ months experience diagnosing, troubleshooting, or repairing technology products"-and I don't know where they expect you to get that.
  2. I really like both HTML and CSS, but I don't know if I could specialize in both of those, because internet sites also require JavaScript which I don't like as much.
  3. Yeah, I'm in my early 40s. What about Best Buy, and working for the Geek Squad? Would I be driving all over the place, or could I just work at a store, like I could with Micro Center?
  4. I know they don’t need to, but I thought that the Samsung software was great in that video, and am wondering if any other brands include something like it with their SSDs.
  5. So I recently watched a YouTube video where the guy was upgrading a laptop that he had from a mechanical drive to an SSD. It was a 2.5'' Samsung SSD and I was really impressed with the data migration software that it had. Do any other brands, like Western Digital or SanDisk, come with data migration software?
  6. If I worked as a tech at Micro Center, I wonder how much time I'd spend selling vs. repairing? They have a listing open now, but you have to do some sales work, which sounds like a weird requirement for a computer tech.?
  7. What do you mean by different design architectures? X86 and ARM are the only two ones that I'm aware of.
  8. I've thought about being a programmer as a career option, but I don't want to spend $15-$20,000 on an coding boot camp. I know I could get started with, for example, Python on a site like Udemy.com, but I'm concerned that I wouldn't have as much of a chance at getting a job as people who go to those expensive boot camps do.
  9. So I've heard about electromagnetic interference (EMI) being an issue around PCs, and I'm wondering how to avoid it. I'm also curious as to why it's even an issue these days, since I grew up using an Apple IIe at school, and there were signs warning against having magnets near disks and things like that. However, with people today using magnetic screwdrivers, and PC cases having magnetic dust filters, I really didn't think that having anything magnetic around computers was an issue anymore.
  10. What could I do with a Linux+ certification? That interests me more then Information Security.
  11. Well, I already have a BA that I got back in 2001. I just love computers, and computer technology and I think it would be fun to work on computers for a living.
  12. Gotcha, thanks! Would working as an Apple Certified Technician require A+ certification?
