Job Description for Help Desk Technician

Help desk technicians are needed by virtually every company that produces or uses sophisticated computer equipment. When either customers or colleagues run into technical problems, the help desk technician identifies, troubleshoots, and resolves the issue. They typically field calls or emails from end users who are having trouble with some aspect of a sophisticated system. By listening to a description of the problem and accessing information about the specific system or application the user is trying to operate, the technician endeavors to guide him or her resolve the problem.
