I just resumed college (majoring in Computer Information Systems, only 48 credits left to graduate) and due to financial reasons will be graduating in 2015 instead of 2014. The reason why l chose a CIS major is to be able to work in the business and IT field since l enjoy both. But l am finding it difficult to chose a specific career path which entails working simultaneously in both business and IT fields.
1. What area(s) in IT/business would you recommend l focus on, database, security, systems management, computer systems analyst, business analyst, programming, etc. Ideally, l would enjoy helping businesses grow, solve problems, expand their customer or market base, and also improve their services or products using computer (IT) systems that will best serve these companies. Personally l do not want to code everyday but understand how programming works, just do not enjoy programming.
I am an avid learner, very organized, plan a lot, like structure a lot, solving problems, task oriented, enjoy presenting and public speaking, personal development, and naturally inclined to analysis.
2. What certificates and experience do l need to have before l graduate in 2015? I was thinking of having my N+, and maybe A+ certificates. I will be glad to know your opinions about my discussion. Thanks
