Computer, ATM, and Office Machine Repairers - Employment & Outlook

The table below provides information about the number of workers in this occupation in various regions. It also provides information about the expected growth rate and future job openings.

Employment

About 12% of computer, ATM, and office machine repairers are self-employed.

Major employers:

  • Computer and office machine sales companies
  • Electronics and appliance stores
  • Computer repair stores
  • Office machine repair companies

Outlook

Demand for this occupation is expected to decline. Many computer problems can be fixed remotely reducing the need for technicians. Also, more people are using online and mobile banking applications reducing the need for ATM machines.

Technicians will still be needed to repair large electronic equipment that is expensive to replace such as high-volume printers. Other types of electronic equipment may be easier replaced than repaired.

The best prospects are for people with degrees in electronics.
