Hey everyone, I need some help, I applied for the Genius position about three weeks ago. I live in the Southern California area. I was wondering if anyone had any tips for me on getting noticed and getting hired. I've already read many articles about the position and what not. A little about myself, Ive built, repaired, and troubleshooted computer problems for friends, family, and myself. I have no professional training in regards to computers. I am very familiar with Apple, however I recently got back into Mac ( I am embarrassed to say I worked with windows computers for the past six years ). I am very technologically inclined, I have never come across a computer problem I could not solve. I also have no professional experience with computers, however I have almost four years of customer service experience. Before I got laid off everyone came to me with the work computer problems before they would go the the IT department. Oh I also have my associates degree in general education (if that helps with the selection process). Basically I have a lot of computer experience in general, I am looking into getting the ACSP and ACMT cetifications. Should I get these certs? Any little bit of information on stores hiring in Orange County CA or anything in general will be helpful!
