Peter’s Answer

my answer may be a slightly different from the others. in my mind, IT does not like heavy development unless force to. IT is more about cost beneficial ratio than next frontier, so if you want to learn lots of technology, building glues to meet the company need, then that is the place for you. If you want to gain deeper level of a given technology, then R&D environment are more suitable. It is really based on your interest and tendency.

Hi Bryan,

A career in information technology can take on many different forms. IT developers might create software programs or be involved in creating the digital infrastructure for a company. Many IT developers work as consultants and do projects for a variety of different organizations. In today’s information age, developers in any area of technology need to have an understanding of their market, and many developers specialize in a specific area. For example, developers are needed in

Finance
Tax preparation
CAD design
Point-of-sales management
Healthcare
Human resources
Marketing
Sound design
Music and the arts
Law
Automotive industries

Every industry today is in some way affected by technology, and companies large and small need knowledgeable tech developers to help them build and maintain a useful infrastructure. Additionally, as technology grows and expands, each industry needs new software to help them keep up with a changing marketplace.

Good Luck!

A career in IT Development is like the Red Queen's Race: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red_Queen%27s_race

"Well, in our country," said Alice, still panting a little, "you'd generally get to somewhere else—if you run very fast for a long time, as we've been doing."

"A slow sort of country!" said the Queen. "Now, here, you see, it takes all the running you can do, to keep in the same place. If you want to get somewhere else, you must run at least twice as fast as that!"

(Lewis Carroll: Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There, Chapter 2)

If you're the sort of person who claims expertise based on having read a tutorial last week, and you can *GET AWAY WITH IT* because you're just that good, then a career in IT Development may be the perfect career for you.

. Work as consultants and do projects for a variety of different organizations

Today’s many developers specialize in a specific area (e.g. finance, marketing, HR, Law,...). Every industry is in some way affected by technology, and companies large and small need knowledgeable tech developers to help them build and maintain a useful infrastructure. Additionally, as technology grows and expands, each industry needs new software to help them keep up with a changing marketplace.
