Such employees, often more broadly described as computer technicians, can be found at organizations large and small, both inside and outside the IT industry. Computer technicians are expected to master a variety of skills and keep pace with various evolving technologies. It's an adventurous role. And, for the benefit of any inclined to seek out that particular adventure, there's an excellent new article at, the Certification Magazine website, that offers guidance and advice.
