Joseph’s Answer

Rajat, there's so many opportunities to focus on and in Information Technology they change frequently, so keep asking these types of questions as you grow in your career aspirations. If you are interested in computers and writing code, nothing beats starting in some type of software development job using whatever are the languages most prevalent at that time, today Python and NodeJS are two good choices. To gain more hardware knowledge, the best way to learn is hands on, so buying inexpensive desktop hardware and upgrading components can be a good start. Usually highly tech professionals will build a local network in their home using a desktop and some form of a Linux OS. Today, much of the hardware needs are moving to Public Cloud providers like Amazon, Microsoft and Google, so learning more about their service offerings and diving into their API (application program interface) driven methods of acquiring infrastructure as code may be a more practical way of learning about hardware and code at the same time.

If you cannot find work in programming or software development, other IT related jobs will likely lead to opportunities to code and learn more about hardware, so taking other IT related jobs may be a good place to start also. Most larger companies (technology, financial services, etc) have leadership development programs and searching their websites for how to apply for an opportunity to become part of a leadership development program can also be a good place for a new college grad. If you are in high school, checking with the same large companies for high school summer internship opportunities and how you might apply to be considered. I have worked with many high school and college interns in my career, who worked hard and in many cases it opened up opportunities for them in the IT leadership development programs after they graduated from college.

All the best

Joe

Jill’s Answer

There is a category of companies called Independent Software Vendors, or ISVs, that specialize in taking technology from large companies, like Microsoft or Salesforce, and then setting it up and customizing it for businesses. Because these companies support other businesses, there is frequently a lot of travel involved, because they visit customers all over the world.

One way to learn more about these companies would be to get an account on LinkedIn or Twitter or YouTube and follow people with "Microsoft MVP" in their title or name. They are people who partner closely with Microsoft. You can start to learn what companies they work for and learn more about the work they do. Because they are always trying to get new customers, they talk about the work they are doing a lot! Many of these people also post videos on YouTube explaining what different pieces of software do and how they work.

There are definitely a lot of opportunities for people who like technology, business, and travel, so keep looking into it!

Kester’s Answer

I suggest you can find some IT company that which is international's corporate so that you have chance to travel to different place to work. I have a friend also come from India and then he starts to work for a internal company in Singapore. Let the interest be your job, find a job that you love. Just like a footballer so you can enjoy doing your work everyday and can go different place to support. Then, you can visit different spot when you off.

Kester recommends the following next steps:

Graduate with computer science or related major
Find some internship opportunities
Start to find some international company
Send your resume and show your passion
Start to work!

Patrice’s Answer

Many people do not realize that careers in IT also require good people skills and can transition into consulting careers. As an IT consultant you can specialize in the programming aspect with integrating software amongst vendors. Along with travel onsite to assist organizations with their integration projects. Many IT consulting roles request/require travel for hands-on assistance. Therefore, you can truly get a 2 for 1 experience.

Geetha’s Answer

Career decisions are never easy to come by due to sheer number of choice of fields available today, with so many new areas coming up and existing fields getting sub-divided further into finer roles.

In order for you to choose your career, you should first identify your core drivers (of happiness). This is the first and foremost requirement. If you don't enjoy what you are doing, if work is not a pleasure for you, however achievements you get in your career, at one point of life you will feel everything as a waste.

It is important that whatever career you are choosing will give you enough amount of money, respect and satisfaction you want from life. Being rich or leader is not needed, but surviving easily is always to be checked.

Rajat, it's good to surround yourself with peers and friends who are good in other fields that you're not keen on.

When you want to start a business, you'll need to be equipped with a strong starting force who are knowledgeable in business development, strategy, finance, legal and you can the expert in technology!

Your skills are based on your natural aptitudes and developed through training/education.

Deciding what you want to do is of no use unless there are opportunities for you to pursue. You can find opportunities through various ways, e.g.: responding to advertisements for jobs or vocational training/sponsorship; making unsolicited approaches to organisations to see if there are any vacancies; networking through people you know to get referrals to potential employers; and creating your own business.

LeeAnn’s Answer

Career decisions are difficult in these ever changing days. Consider the evolution of technology and where we are and where we came from. This is an industry that will continue to grow and evolve. I am in the digital banking space after a 10 year career in the retail banks of traditional brick and mortar. I saw an opportunity to take my banking knowledge, and level of knowledge of technology and turn this to a new adventure and amazing career choice. A lot of fintech companies out there promote work from home, support travel to visit clients, and offer great opportunities for advancement and competitive salaries and benefits.
