Top Reasons to Consider a Job in IT in The New Year

Are you looking for a career change in 2022? Information technology (IT) can be a great choice! With a relatively low bar to entry (typically a high school diploma and some familiarity with programming languages), it’s a field that you can work your way up in as you gain skills, education, and experience. Here are a few reasons to consider IT jobs in the New Year.

Job Security

IT is in high demand, and that’s unlikely to change anytime soon. From companies adopting new technologies to the explosion of the Internet of Things, once you get your first IT job, you’re likely to always be able to land a new one.

Growth Opportunities

If you don’t have at least a two-year degree, you will probably start as an intern or other entry-level worker. But the IT field has a long history of people like Steve Jobs dropping out of college to pursue incredibly successful careers. You’ll be able to learn on the job, prove your worth, and ultimately move up. You may decide to gain additional education to pursue specific opportunities, but it’s really up to you. Either way, if you turn out to have a knack for IT, you can go far.

Learning New Skills

Regardless of how much or how little experience you have in IT, these positions are all about learning on the job. Technology evolves rapidly, and as an IT professional, you’ll be expected to keep up. If you enjoy learning and growing, this can be an excellent field for you.

Daily Problem Solving

No matter what the specific position, IT is all about solving problems. You might be figuring out how to make a new app do what you want. Or you might be fielding questions from end-users. Either way, if you enjoy a challenge and want to do something different every day, consider a job in IT.
