Can computer support specialist be a life-long career?

I'm great at math, and passionate about customer-service

so computer support seems like a reasonable choice. Can

it be a life-long career? (assuming I will live to 120 years.)

Bonus question: Is it realistic to get hired if you learn the

material on your own, and pass the CompTia A+ exam?

Would a certificate completed online be acceptable

or is it always better to attend local community-college?

Thank You

    I would be cautious about an online certificate because some of them are worthless. Make sure it is reputable. The main thing is to be able to prove what you can do, and a good interviewer will be able to test your knowledge.

    Yes, it can be a good career. With any type of career, as long as you are passionate about it, you will succeed.

    Tech support is dead-end. Don't think of it as any more than an entry-level stepping stone, while you work toward something better.

    No. Mostly because anyone that works in customer service eventually snaps.
