• CompTIA’s My IT Path opens up technology career opportunities

        • Step-by-step guidance on planning a career in information technology (IT) is available via a new free resource from CompTIA, the trade association for the global IT industry.

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

          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.”

          The site features information for five IT occupation categories: supportnetworkingcybersecuritydata and software and web development. Each category includes a description of specific job roles. Visitors 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.

          Ryan added, “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.

          “Unlike other industries, entry-level IT jobs do not require a college 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 your skills at a fraction of the cost of college.”
