    Any computer technicians?

    Basically, I'm a senior in high school and to graduate I need to secure an interview or really just ask someone in the field 10 questions. Its simple and quick and I would really appreciate it just leave a reply in the topic.

    I wasn't quite sure to put this topic I hope its fine here.

    That wouldn't really constitute an "interview" and this may not be the place for homework.

    You should have plenty of resources in your community. I'd recommend asking around and doing a face-to-face. I'm sure plenty of people would love to talk your leg off.

    Much better that than to get 30 partial responses and a truckload of conflicting opinions that might turn into a flame-fest anyway.

    Talk to a real person. You get more than just a bunch of words that way.

    Having a face-to-face interview would be a better idea tbh.

    Tell them you will work the first week free. Not only will you secure the interview, you'll probably get hired.

    Interviews go both ways, it's a chance to see if it's some place you want to work for.

    If you can't find someone local to talk to, start hanging out at local computer stores and keep trying to get a job at one. It will be horrible, but the experience will help in the future. As for the interview, just relax, don't talk over your own head and ask a few questions during or after the interview (a few, not too many). Most interviews are more about how they feel about you once the get a feel that you can do the job.

    Hope that helps, and good luck.

    I have to ask 10 questions, I procrastinated and its due to tommorow and I have no transportation to another city so I kinda can't do that face to face interview.

    EDIT: I'm graduating from a continuation school btw. I kinda just need to have the answers to the questions written down. We don't have very high standards.

    EDIT2: I'm not trying to get a job interview I just need to ask questions about the career itself.
