Question

Education, job prospects, age issue?

By Tburg21 ·
Hello, new to the site. But have a question. I'm considering a B. S. in IT Management. Is the degree worth it to some one with little it experience? To manage something shouldn't you have a thorough knowledge of it? Yet the course description seems to only cover basics. In addition.. I'm nearly 50 yrs old by the time I graduate.. Switching careers. I do have an associate in networking.. But have sadly forgotten most of what I knew..

Transitioning back to IT

by Lisa_TEK In reply to Education, job prospects ...

To me, the B.S. doesn't sound like a sure-fire investment. What happens if you can't find a management job in IT, which is a strong possibility given your lack of recent experience. There are a lot of ways to transition back into IT without committing to a new degree; try to see how you can use your current skills and transition within the same industry (domain expertise will help a lot in a business IT role). I don't know what you currently do but perhaps you could work as a business analyst or project manager with your current skills? You can always go back for your B.S. at night; experience plus education is a potent combo.
