Finding the Jobs
There are hundreds of websites that will claim to provide you with computer technician job opportunities or contract work. Many of these sites are just trying to get your name and personal information so they can sell it to mailing and recruiting list companies. Be careful and be selective and follow the Quick Tips below.
One of the best places to find computer field service technician job opportunities is Field Solutions. Work orders are posted for you to bid on and, if chosen, perform the work and be paid within 7-10 days of the work being approved. Registration is easy and you perform the work as an independent technician contractor. The work can be anything from a 2 hour event to a month contract or more. So, you can pick up work orders for supplemental income or you can build a computer technician small business to generate a main source of income.
There's no interview or screening. If you're not honest about your qualifications and skill sets, or if your performance is sub standard, word will travel and you won't receive subequent opportunities. On top it, you won't be paid for the job(s) you did perform if the client wasn't satisfied with your work.
Again, there have been several "copycat" sites popping up, claiming to provide technician contract opportunities similar to Field Solutions. Per the testimonial below, Field Solutions remains the best of breed.
"I began working with Field Solutions in August of 2010 and I have done around 40 jobs/projects. I use other companies (or platforms as I call them) like FS to get work but FS, for me, is by far the "Best" platform in so many areas I can't type them on a BlackBerry now. The jobs I get from you all, the support and timely pay are just a few of the things that set you apart from the rest. I get well over half of all my work from FS when compared with the 3 other platforms I have accepted jobs from. Combined."
