Have you always worked in IT?

Our previous Quick Poll asked TechRepublic members if they made the jump to IT from another field or if they've always been a techie. Ten months ago, we asked the same question. The results comparison is quite interesting.


Last week’s Quick Poll asked whether you’ve always worked in IT or you transitioned into a high-tech career from another profession. Figure A shows the results. We asked the same question 10 months ago; you can see those results in Figure B. During the past 10 months, the number of TechRepublic members has more than doubled, so we wanted to see how the statistics compared. Interestingly, the numbers are nearly identical.
