Last week in this blog, I asked What kind of background does it take to succeed in IT? and presented a poll designed to get a snapshot of the educational background of TechRepublic members.

Nearly 1,000 people took the poll. Here are the results:

As you can see, the predominant scenario is a 4-year degree in an IS-related major. Interesting, but not surprising, is that the second most common scenario is no degree/with certs.

I'd like to drill down further for those who answered Other. If you chose that option, could you explain a little about your background?

Note to readers: We will be featuring a new Friday twist to the Career Management blog. Every Friday, we will present a true-life member-provided career or workplace scenario that needs a resolution. All scenarios will be anonymous and we welcome all feedback. If you have a career or workplace issue you'd like help with, e-mail it to me by clicking here.
