According to livecareer.com there are some examples that you can use. Examples like “Looking to utilize skills in customer service and working with computers as a Technical Support Specialist for ABC company.” Another example is “Seeking employment as a Technical Support Specialist with ABC company to use extensive background in answering inquiries about computer systems and developing training manuals for fellow employees.” These are good examples for those going into the IT field.
