    Im actually kinda nervous about this one, as I would love to work in a line like this, but Ive never had any formal work in it, nor any real qualifications. I dont even have an A+ certification, but Im still gonna try and get it. Not to mention I fucking hate making resumes.

    Don't worry I know the feeling. I have no prior sales experience or formal field experience, just a couple of home jobs. But luckily I'm studying PC Networking which is pretty much an extended version of PC Support. And both my PC Tech teachers have said they'll vouch for me working with them, and they said I can use them as references. They said as long as you can demonstrate your knowledge to them in the interview you'll be fine. I'm sure it'll be the same for you.

    Im looking to get my old teacher to be a reference as well. Other than that the only thing I have is praise from family and friends that I have either built for, or done small repairs for. But the job description wasnt fully laid out to me, and the person who gave it to me said it was 'Computer refurbishing' which I would be fine with. But if its just going to be computer repair, Im kinda worried that there is some really technical stuff that I missed out by not being certified or having a degree that will cost me this. :\

    "Religions are, by definition, metaphors, after all: God is a dream, a hope, a woman, an ironist, a father, a city, a house of many rooms, a watchmaker who left his prize chronometer in the desert, someone who loves you—even, perhaps, against all evidence, a celestial being whose only interest is to make sure your football team, army, business, or marriage thrives, prospers, and triumphs over all opposition. Religions are places to stand and look and act, vantage points from which to view the world. So none of this is happening. Such things could not occur. Never a word of it is literally true.”
