I am listing below some of my skills and experiences but it is by no means all inclusive or up to date. I am open to different pay scales for different types of work. I do not expect 20 an hour for simple retail and I will not entertain 15 an hour for skills such as HVAC. I have most tools for most jobs and a dependable vehicle.

I am an experienced and very competent computer user. Experienced with Windows and Linux on a "power user" basis. Am also experienced with networking, virtual machines, dual booting, cloud,basic HTML,CSS, servers, DOS, and basic shell coding. Also took 18 month Microsoft Applications course and am well knowledged with most MS business applications.
I am interesting in finding a entry level apprenticeship with a computer tech service company. I feel I would be a good canidate for this position because I feel I have already reached a power user level with Windows and Linux due to my desire and drive for self studying and learning through both hands on practice and online courses ( such as Coursera https://www.coursera.org/ , academic earth http://academicearth.org/ and others ).
I have set up my own home lab networks for pen testing and networking practices and have practiced virus removals, network configurations, and pen testing.

Im very experinced at PC tune ups and most OS trouble shooting / repair. This includes general clean ups as well as using regedit to streamline the services and registry for speed tweaks and customaziton. Also have removed many different viruses and ransomwares.
I also have experience with remote administration whether its Samba to Windows or Windows to Windows.
I am capable of hardware up grades and repairs such as screen replacements, RAM, Video Cards, Hard Drives, aftermarket cooling systems and etc. As far as electronic testing and trouble shooting with meters and etc., I do not have much experience in and am desiring to learn this.
I feel like I am at a position take my knowledge to a new level and into something that I can actually do for a living. I am the type of person that if you point me in the direction of what I need to learn next that I will actively seek out that knowledge on my own through online learning resources and stick with it untill I know it inside out. ( I have had many of late nights on the computer studying ). My problem is I dont quite know what next level of knowledge to persue to actually break into the computer tech field so that I am a asset to the trade. I dont quite know exactly what key aspects of core knowledge I need on a day to day basis for a computer tech business.
I am open to working part time as well as full time. I am very open on pay as I am persueing this for learning as well. I have very good phone manners and can handle receptionist duties as well.
I am very interested in any offers and speaking with you if you feel I could be of help to your work and a good prospect for a apprentice.
