Specialize: The world of computer science is big and the areas of expertise are plenty. That’s why, even though it’s important to know a little bit of everything, it’s better to be an expert in something specific. Stand out and be the best in programing, configuration or technical service so when someone needs that service they won’t hesitate to call you.
Automatize: You need to have a process of automatization for your frequent task, a reminder of your clients’ needs, a multiboot disc, etc. Everything that can save time allowing you to be more effective and do more.
Keep track of your clients: It’s important to have a register of what you’ve done for your clients to know when they may need you again or what can you offer them.
Partner with another IT: You may be a specialist in something and your collage in another area of expertise, so it’s positive to ally to have a broader service offer. So, if a client asks you for something you don’t know how to do, instead of saying I don’t know, you can recommend your friend. And he’ll do the same for you.
This are some key ideas to help you increase your demand as an IT and have more possibilities to be hire and have a fix list of clients.
