Are you driven by a challenge? A great problem-solver? Excited by all things tech-related? If the answer is ‘yes’, a career in the Information Technology field could be perfect for you. Now more than ever, businesses are looking for IT specialists to help them succeed in our tech-heavy world. So, if you’re looking to take the plunge into a new pathway, Albright Institute’s Advanced Diploma of Information Technology could be the perfect next step.
Still not sure whether it’s right for you? Here are five signs that you’re suited to a career in Information Technology.
1. You dream of a career with endless possibilities
Studying Information Technology opens up a whole world of opportunities – each one as interesting and exciting as the next. Depending on your interests, you can pursue a career in cyber security, programming, telecommunications engineering, data management… the list goes on.
In addition to the many different pathways available, IT is also an industry where starting your own business, working as a sole trader or managing a team in a professional setting is all within reach. No matter what environment you see yourself working in, IT can work for you.
2. You want the freedom of a flexible work life
If you’re someone who doesn’t like the idea of being stuck in one place for a long period of time, IT offers the ultimate freedom. Not only do many pathways offer the possibility of working remotely, but the skills you learn in your studies can often be used in any workplace, anywhere in the world.
For people who love to travel or dream of one day packing up and moving to a different country, this means you won’t have to sacrifice your hard-earned career to do it. So, no matter where you go, you can have peace of mind knowing that your career can grow with you.
3. You love to learn and expand your skills
As technology continues to change, so too does the field of IT. For people who find themselves itching for a challenge, there is always plenty of opportunity to expand your skillset over the course of your career. Whether it’s continuing your studies with another course or developing your skillset in your own time, you won’t be bored when you work in the field of IT.
4. You want to join a growing industry
If you’re eager to get working as soon as you’ve completed a course, we have great news for you; the Information Technology industry is in its prime. So much so that at the beginning of 2021, LinkedIn released a report showing that job opportunities in the IT field were on the rise throughout Australia.
Not only are roles such as Cyber Security and Data Management becoming increasingly sought after, but the ability for IT specialists to work remotely is particularly important in a time when working from home is crucial. Long story short, if you’re wanting to join one of Australia’s hottest industries, this is it.
5. You like hands-on learning environments
When most people think about studying, they think of open books and hours spent sitting at a desk. Not with IT, though. Albright’s Advanced Diploma of Information Technology focuses on practical learning to help you grasp the reality of what working in IT is really like.
In this two year course, you will learn what complex problem solving looks like on the job, how to manage different engineering tasks and how to design and what it takes to design and maintain telecommunications networks – amongst many other skills. Plus, you’ll also hone essential professional qualities like how to manage teams, develop and maintain business relationships and more. By the end of the course, you’ll be more than ready to tackle your career in IT.
