The kind of Systems that they may have to look at and design will depend heavily on the type of business that they are going to work for e.g A business that ships freight will need a very different system than one which sells Olympic quality pogo sticks.

They install computer systems, diagnose hardware and software faults then provide a solution to these faults. Often this is all done over the phone but sometimes it is done in person. The exact systems that must be maintained depend on the type and size of a business/organisation. Source:

    9. IT Technical Support Officer - Requirements For this job employers will be looking for knowledge of different software that the employee may be required to use such as Linux and Microsoft Windows.

The kind of product being sold will change the job significantly but the basics of the job all remain the same regardless. Source:

    11. IT Sales Professional - Requirements Unlike most of the other IT jobs technical skills in IT are not that important for this job, employers will very much favour sales skills. It is not necessary to have previous work experience in this job, work experience in any other sales job would be just as valuable because you will need to use the same skills. You should also have a results driven attitude to work and perseverance in order to get the best sales. Source:
