CompTIA launches My IT Path careers service Featured

By

Tech industry trade association CompTIA has launched a new free resource - My IT Path - providing information on in-demand employment opportunities for anyone planning a career in IT.

My IT Path delivers an interactive, personalised experience for anyone interested in learning about careers in the IT field.

CompTIA says the demand for IT professionals remains strong in many markets around the world in the tech sector and in other industries, such as financial services, manufacturing, healthcare, government, education and retail.

Ryan Blankenship, vice president for content and learning at CompTIA, 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.”  



Blankenship said the My IT Path site features comprehensive information for five IT occupation categories - support, networking, cybersecurity, data and software and web development - with each category including a description of specific job roles.

Visitors to the site can explore the occupations at the beginner, intermediate and advanced career levels, including details on skill requirements, median salaries and the availability of jobs and relevant professional certifications.

“We built this career road map 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,” Blankenship said.

“Careers in IT should be particularly attractive to young people having second thoughts about the cost of a four-year university education and the post-graduation student loan debt. Unlike other industries entry-level IT jobs do not require a university degree.

“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.”
