What IT discipline is the most lucrative?
Full stack, date science, just to name a couple. Which discipline is the most lucrative and makes you the most hire-able as a boot-camp graduate with no professional experience?
I hear you. I like making money, too. However, you need to ALSO consider what fits you.
EXAMPLE: Programming (software development) has huge Pro's. If you are good, you can work remotely and pick up extra side-work as you want it. However, I hate sitting in front of a display all day writing code. I also don't love learning new languages and tools constantly. So, personally, I can't do that successfully with passion long-term. I could grit through it if I had to, short-term.
NINE IT DOMAINS: Gartner helpfully classifies IT into 9 domains: app dev, app support, datacenter, helpdesk, financial/administration, management, data networking, voice networking, end user compute. Large IT departments are typically structured approximately along these lines.
IDEAS: If you just need a technology job ASAP, get a VMware VCP cert or Cisco Networking (CCNA) cert or Amazon Web Services (AWS) certs, and start applying for entry-level jobs.
WAYS IN: The way in as a "IT/Business Analyst" usually requires Bachelor's degree. I started in Tech. Support (15 years ago), did various increasing technical and managerial roles in IT, and settled as a Sr. Manager with lucrative salary. Management is definitely the best path for ME.
