Some examples of a technical skills are; technical writing and coding and programming. Examples of personal skills are; critical thinking and problem solving. I will start out by going over a couple skills that are important when applying for a support job. One of the most important things employers are going to be looking for is your communication skills. Some important aspects of having good communication skills are being able to listen, being respectful and having an open mind. Most people believe that IT professionals can work well without good communication, but this is not true. Most of the times, IT professionals will be working together as a group.
