If you like working with your hands and getting out and about, then you'd probably enjoy working as a senior service technician. You'll also enjoy this type of job if you're handy with repairs and like figuring out how things work.
Service technicians provide a range of repair and installation services. They often travel to their client's business or home to work on appliances, office equipment, computers, and many other things. Senior service technicians also sometimes work as the go-to-person for handling building maintenance issues.
The ideal service technician should be punctual, able to correctly diagnose a problem, and repair any manufacturing equipment quickly. Flexibility and good time-management skills are key because service technicians may get a service call at any time. They must also have good customer service skills, since they are dealing with the public for a good part of the day.
All that is needed to get into this field is a high school diploma or GED. However, you may wish to get a technical certificate or associate's degree to become further educated in the area in which you work.
