About this event

We are hosting an awesome session with the computing students on campus focused on choosing a tech career path. It promises to be exciting, educative, and thrilling with the HOD of the Computer Science Department, Dr. O.O. Ajayi.

When it comes to the many specialty areas of information technology, there are some main categories that they fall under. One way to take the very first step towards picking an IT career path is to choose with major target area sounds ideal for you. The major categories include:

  • Information Security
  • Network and Cloud Technologies
  • Hardware, Services, and Infrastructure
  • IT Management and Strategy
  • Storage and Data
  • Web and Mobile
  • Software Development
  • Training

So, the obvious first step is to review each of these major areas and begin to assess which fits your skills and personality best. Perhaps the idea of working in software development doesn’t exactly thrill you; then nix it from the list and keep moving.

Once you begin to narrow the field you can start looking at the specializations within the major categories. Most people new to information technology will find that once they start looking into the major categories they can scratch a few off very quickly.

Come learn from the best minds on how to choose a tech career path.
