Information Technology careers are significantly different from careers in other sectors of the economy.
For example, what employers define as formal credentials actually clashes with the definitions of many information technology professionals.
While some professionals say that "just one (1) educational degree is enough", others say that "the more college degrees you get, the better your chances of success" and some have no opinion at all!
In this post, I will say reveal the credentials required for success on your job and explain why they are so important.
After witnessing the challenges in the lives of professionals dealing with under-performance, under-achievement, stress, anxiety, career stagnation, anger, depression or financial failure; I decided to write this article on how to make better career choices.
Choosing the right career is important because you spend the major part of your day (9 to 11 hours) at work. If you make the wrong career choice, you will put yourself in a painful, challenging situation.
So, choosing the right career ranks as one of the most important decisions you will ever make in your life.
Several years ago, I had a conversation with a lady who had a computer science degree but was unable to get hired for any type of Information technology (IT) job.
I realized right away, that what she lacked was an understanding of how the IT job / career market works. The sort of information that is generally omitted in schools because no one thinks it is important enough.
So, after she shared her story with me, I did some research and came to the startling conclusion that she was not alone.
