You have to make decision.

by libra74 In reply to ENTERING THE IT WORLD

Hi there,

IT is a bunch of many fields for e.g. Programming, Web Design, E-Commerce, Networking etc etc, If u want to enter in the world of IT you should check yourself what field is appropriate for.. Are u capable of understand & work in Languages like C++, Visual C, VB etc.. or you can work in Web designing, Networking etc.

You must have choose one field and then cocentrate on that..

Its the only way of success in the world of IT.

Business

Make sure that whatever you take, compliment it with courses such as English(Business Communications(beg,imt,adv)), accounting, introduction to business concepts and economics. Yes these courses are boring at times, but it opens many more doors than just basic programming IMO.

Work in a lab.

by clearsmashdrop In reply to Business

Have you tried working in your school's computer lab? Its a good way to decide if you want to go down the programming road or networking road.

My degree has absolutely nothing to do with computers so I had a real hard time getting in IT.

Try to get some experience before leaving school. Like someone mentioned earlier, there are many non-technical classes that are important, English, Technical writing, etc.

I agree

by XpertDragon In reply to Work in a lab.

Working in your campus computer lab is a great suggestion. I myself, worked in my business college computer lab for three years before graduation. In that time, I had the benefits of freedom. A lot of freedom to learn new technolgies at your own pace and the freedom to work with college peers that have many different skill levels compared to your own. Peer to Peer learning in a relaxed, non-corporate environment is a wonderful concept. Good Luck in any venture you choose!

A long list

by Prefbid II In reply to ENTERING THE IT WORLD

1. Technical Writing
2. Business Law
3. Economics
4. Chemistry or Physics
5. Creative Writing
6. Math (until you are blue in the face).
7. More math.
8. History, the Arts, Music theory
9. Oh, if you have time, take some computer courses. They aren't really necessary for a good IT worker, but they might help make your resume look good.
