IT offers great career opportunities in today's economy.
Every company now has to be a technology company in some capacity in order to be successful in today's fast-paced economy. That's why the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reports the number of IT careers available to software developers is expected to increase 21% by 2028! MSN.com reports that IT jobs comprise 12 of the Top 25 Highest Paying Jobs with the most openings.
So, what does an IT person actually do?
The day-to-day tasks of an IT professional varies depending on what area of IT you pursue. Technology can be broken out into two general fields: networking and programming (also known as coding). Within these two areas are a multitude of different jobs such as security, communications, network analyst, software developer, mobile apps developer, website development and even game design. You might be knowledgeable in a variety of areas in IT, but your daily roles and responsibilities will become more defined as you determine which direction is right for you.
What are the career opportunities?
One of the best things about technology are the opportunities to grow your career. Your entry-level opportunity in technology is not just a job—it's the first step in your IT career. As you gain experience and technical skills (like the experienced IT professionals that train with our Corporate Division), you will advance your career into higher paying jobs with more prestige and responsibilities.
