IT – It’s Not All About Programming
When you step into a medical facility, it doesn’t take long for you to figure out that not everyone there is a doctor. There are nurses, lab technicians, therapists, specialty consultants, pharmacists and a bunch of other people who collaboratively work with doctors to run the facility. The same applies to the technical stream of work.
When it comes to IT, it’s not just programming that we are talking about. It’s about a load of other things as well such as hardware and software infrastructure, networking, data center setups, database management, security and web development. Thus, when we talk about IT, it’s not that you have to choose to become a programmer and know the ins and outs of coding. It can be a varied field matching your skills and interests.So, let’s discuss a few career choices you can make to set a career path in the Information Technology world:
