IT jobs are positions in the fields of computer software, hardware, data storage/retrieval, and computer support. Information Technology is a fast-growing industry that offers many high-paying jobs and career growth.
- Software Engineering
Becoming a software engineer is one of the most common ways to get a job in IT. While many people earn a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science, it’s also possible to land a great software engineering job by being self-taught.
Some employers strongly prefer software developers and engineers with a formal 4-year education, but many others don’t care.
The key is to be able to show your ability – by creating software and doing real projects that you can show to employers.
- Web Design
Every website and web application needs a design team, along with the engineering & development team.
So if you don’t want to learn programming but still want to have a part in building technologies and influencing how software progresses, then web design could be a good IT job choice for you.
Like software engineering, there are formal degrees and academic programs that help prepare you for this, but it’s also possible to be self-taught or take an accelerated program that is not part of a 4-year university degree.
- Cyber Security Expert
We’ve all read about security or data breaches by now… usually multiple times per year. These mistakes are costly for companies, and they’re investing more into staff that can help secure and protect their data from hacks and other malicious activity online.
This type of IT job does require an advanced background and training, though. Some universities offer a degree in cyber security – either a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree – which will help prepare you for this career.
This is also an important focus within military operations, so it’s possible you could study IT and hone your skills in the military as well if that interests you.
- Data Science & Data Engineering
This is really two different types of IT jobs, but we’ll combine them here to make it easier to explain.
The basic idea is: Companies are collecting more and more data – for advertising, for strategic decision-making, and more. Some of the biggest and most profitable companies on earth, like Facebook and Google, and have practically built their business on collecting data.
So these companies need data scientists to interpret and work with the massive data sets that they’re collecting, to make the information useful and helpful.
And they need data engineers to write programs and scripts to process and work with the data… because you can’t do it manually at the scale that these companies are operating at.
Data engineers are quite similar to software engineers (mentioned at the start of this list of IT jobs), except with a narrower and more specialized focus.
- Server/Database Engineers and Administrators
Every time you see a website or app, there’s a lot going on that you can’t see – mainly, how the “front end” or the piece that’s visible is interacting with the database to store information, retrieve information, etc.
And this has to happen QUICKLY for most websites/apps. Think about when you type a search into Google, Facebook, or LinkedIn… and how quickly those results come back. But for you to get those results, the website needs to retrieve info from its database.
And there are professionals who create the code and architecture of these databases, and people who oversee them and make sure they’re running smoothly, too.
- IT Support/Help-Desk
If you don’t have a fancy degree or a desire to work in a cutting-edge field like data science, but you’ve always liked IT and technology and want to be involved, you could look into IT help desk jobs.
In this type of IT job, the staff work to ensure that all employees and systems in a company can continue to operate and have working technology.
When I was working as a Recruiter and had trouble setting up my new headset to make phone calls, an IT help desk technician came and did some troubleshooting at my desk.
When my computer wasn’t letting me sort my emails the way I wanted, I messaged the help desk staff and they responded with a solution.
And this type of job will allow you to work in any industry. The staffing agency that I worked at had IT support staff. Banks have IT support staff. Non-profits have IT support staff. You get the picture! So you’re not just limited to software start-ups and tech companies with this IT career choice.
