Do you spend your free time texting your friends, updating your Facebook status and playing computer games? Ever wonder what programs make it all work?
You might want to consider a future in information technology.
Information technology focuses on how digital information is shared, managed, stored, analyzed and secured. It allows you to make online purchases, find your way to a new friend’s house using GPS, book a flight for your next trip and submit your college application online.
An information technology-related degree opens the door for a career in wide-range of fields from homeland security and health care to gaming development.
At IT-oLogy, we believe IT has the power to change the world.
People who pursue careers in IT should develop strong problem-solving, analytical, and communication skills. Because you often deal with a number of tasks simultaneously, the ability to concentrate and pay close attention to detail also is important. IT professionals frequently work in teams on large projects so you must be able to communicate effectively with other computer workers, such as programmers and managers, as well as with users.
