Job Description for Help Desk Engineer

Help desk engineers provide technical support and assistance to customers experiencing a wide range of computer problems. Many companies, especially larger ones, have help desk engineers on staff to troubleshoot technical issues and help employees and customers resolve them. Because help desk engineers interact directly with customers on a daily basis, it is important that they have excellent customer service and communication skills. Help desk engineers often help individuals who have little to no knowledge of computers or technology. Phone etiquette is especially important, as many issues are handled by phone.
