I have decided to do some interesting experiments every weekend and share it next week as a weekend project on the blog. Many times in our business lives and personal lives are very separate, however, this post will talk about one instance where my two lives connect.
This weekend I visited my friend’s company. My friend owns a technical institute, so of course I am very interested, so see that they are doing well. I have been very impressed this year, as they have expanded into multiple cities and are offering more and more classes about Business Intelligence, Project Management, networking, and much more.
I am very happy for my friend’s success, but as a technology enthusiast, I am also pleased with his success. Whenever anyone in our field improves, the field as a whole does better. I am a big fan of technology (obviously), and I feel blessed to have gotten in on the “ground floor,” even though there are some people out there who think technology has advanced as far as possible – I believe they will be proven wrong. And that is why I think companies like my friend’s organization are so important – they are providing training and support in a quickly growing field, and providing job skills in this tough economy.
I believe this particular post really highlights how I, feel about the IT industry. It is quickly expanding, and job opportunities are sure to abound – but how can the average person get started in this exciting field? This post emphasizes that knowledge is power – know what interests you in the IT field, get an education, and continue your training even after you’ve gotten your foot in the door.
Well, with this my weekend project was over. I had a great time.
