You need a high level of exposure to technology and a vast willingness to learn. As you know, companies like Microsoft love to update their systems, so it's going to be a constant educational process to keep up with new updates and new developments in tech.
Today I see a lot of young adults who choose to get a foot in the door by taking a job on Best Buy's Geek Squad, or at a similar tech-based retail job. The people who leave that position with a passion to learn more about technology are the people we want to hire, and the people who are going to thrive in this job. You're not going to enter the industry at the top, so be willing to put in the work and get the experience. It's all about attitude and desire.
