I am Carmen Harris, the communications assistant at IT-oLogy and I have been busy these last few months coordinating interviews and questionnaires with some extraordinary women from across the country that have great careers in information technology. Starting in April, we will be posting these interviews to coincide with our celebration of Women in IT month at IT-oLogy.
Some of the careers that will be featured are: Java Developer, Applications Development Manager, IT Director, Technology Delivery Manager and Chief Information Officer. This all culminates with the Award for Aspirations in Computing ceremony at IT-oLogy on April 27. The Award for Aspirations in Computing is a part of the NCWIT talent development program that encourages young women to succeed in technology. We are pleased to recognize the five winners of the South Carolina Aspirations Award! More about these young women to follow!
We invited women from major companies like SCANA and Blue Cross Blue Shield of South Carolina to answer a short questionnaire. They have provided some words of encouragement and insight on some major misconceptions about working in IT.
You will not only learn more about the daily tasks and main activities of each job, but also what degree these women pursued in college for their career. We also asked them to tell us about their interests and hobbies outside of IT. Stay tuned to the IT-oLogy blog for more about women in IT.
