How To Make A Career Change Into IT

August 12, 2022 in Career Change to IT, Centriq News, College Alternatives, IT Career Program / by Elizabeth Granada

You might have read it only takes 21 days to form a new habit, but when you try it out for yourself, you have no problem reverting back to your old ways on Day 22. So what gives? As it turns out, the idea of developing a positive change in 21 days was a misinterpreted quote from Dr. Maxwell Maltz. Maltz actually states it takes a minimum of 21 days to make a permanent change, and it can take much longer depending on the change you are looking to make. Studies now show it takes anywhere from 18-254 days to make a change, with the average person taking about 66 days to establish a new habit. 

These numbers might seem daunting, especially if the change you are trying to make is to entirely change career paths. However, with the right tools, you can create a positive change in your future with a new career in IT. Are you ready to make a positive change in your life and join the IT industry? Check out our tips to help set you up for success!

But there’s a hurdle that might be getting you in front of an interviewer — an Applicant Tracking System that’s funneling resumes and tossing yours out before it even gets into the hands of a human. 

While an Applicant Tracking System (or ATS) may seem like it’s doing more harm than good, that’s not always the case. They can be extremely helpful for hiring managers who may have to sift through hundreds of applications for a single job posting. Understanding how to use an ATS to your advantage may be the difference between landing an interview for an IT job and being left in the dust.
