Why Do You Want to Be a Desktop Support Technician (Specialist)?


Three people in a job interviewOne of the first interview questions. You need to convince the employer that this job is not your last option. To say you want to have it because it was your field of study is  like telling you must get it, not that you really want to have it. It should never happen to you in an interview!

Oppositely, you should try to show your motivation and enthusiasm for the job, showing some passion for desktop support and helping the others. Alternatively, you can say that you fulfill all the job requirements and believe to bring some added value to the company. Recruiters love such an attitude!
