If you’re looking for a new job or want to make money on the side, you might want to venture into computer and mobile phone repair as the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) sees a big splash of demand for the said field.
It’s said that the demand for computer and mobile phone technicians will surge in the coming months as the country will increase the adaptation of digital technologies as we enter the new normal.
The agency is urging high school graduates, more importantly, those who can’t enroll for a college degree, to get technician training at TESDA. The best part is, their training for cellphone servicing and computer systems servicing technicians are being offered for free.
After the course is complete, trainees can diagnose and repair smartphones, tablets, laptops, and even personal computers — the key machines that both students and workers use as they home-school and work from home.

What’s interesting is, service technicians can offer such services at home or door-to-door, with no need to spend money on store renting.
You can put up a workshop at home and market your services online like Facebook. The start-up costs are very minimal. As long as you have the knowledge and basic tools, you’re good to go.
As you know, more and more Filipinos are acquiring new gadgets for home learning and remote working. Even the government is distributing tons of devices to its employees and the citizens. This means that, inevitably, more devices will require servicing and repairs in the future.
