Last night it thundered and poured like crazy, which caused my Internet to go out. That was definitely a problem, because what’s there to do on a rainy Saturday night besides surf the Interwebs?

Luckily a lovely Technical Support Specialist was able to help get my Internet up and kicking again, therefore allowing me to carry on my fabulous evening plans. A Technical Support Specialist helps customers troubleshoot when they encounter problems with a technology.
A Technical Support Specialist deals with troubleshooting and problem solving for customers (or their own company’s staff) by using specialized knowledge for using a technology. Companies often provide tech support to users of their products like mobile phones, televisions, computers, or software products.
