CompTIA launches IT career path guide
CompTIA has launched an interactive site giving step-by-step guidance on planning a career in the ICT sector.
The industry association has developed My IT Path, which provides an interactive, personalised experience for students and others interested in learning about careers in the IT field.
The site includes information covering five categories of IT occupations — support, networking, cybersecurity, data and software, and web development — including descriptions of specific job roles, expected salaries and the occupations available at the beginner, intermediate and advanced career levels.
“We built this career roadmap to help demystify how to get into IT. There are immediate openings for entry-level positions that often have above-average starting salaries and real opportunities for long-term career growth,” CompTIA VP for Content and Learning Ryan Blankenship said.
“Students who are beginning their career considerations, seasoned tech professionals looking to take the next step up, workers in other industries looking to make a career change, members of the armed forces planning to return to the civilian workforce and anyone else with an interest in technology jobs can explore their options by visiting My IT Path.”
He said careers in IT should appeal to young people worried about the cost of taking on the debt involved with a university education.
“Many companies have openly stated that skills and abilities are what really matter. IT certifications, such as those offered by CompTIA, are a proven and economical way to validate skills.”
