Alexandra, great question. Technology is dominating the world. In the working world we rely heavily on it. This is why it is such a great field to consider. For example, my agency devotes an entire floor to employees or contractors in information systems. The agency would be lost and not in good compliance without it. Why? Because the operations in our office use specific systems that information systems and information technology perform. This field often works
on the back end of the systems we utilize in my agency and others. For these systems to work properly and work well for the user, it is important to have people in this workforce. These systems, Alexandra, if not working could have a negative effect on people who rely on it's purpose. This would imact the organization, individual or families. You will find any opportunities and jobs in this area. Much success to you! If you have more questions please ask.
