Not only do you navigate advances and changes in hardware, software, and industry practices, you strive to team members and direct reports do the same. To experience a full and successful IT career, you’ll want to include:
Continuing Education – Earning professional certifications keep you up-to-date in changes in your field, help you earn promotions, and allow you to transition from one IT specialty to another.
Networking – Meeting with other IT professionals, both online and at conferences and events, usually proves extremely valuable. In addition to sharing ideas and projects, you may meet your next hire, boss, or business partner.
Giving Back – Investing in others through idea-sharing, writing, speaking, mentoring, and/or volunteering makes you a better professional and helps you develop the reputation as an IT thought-leader. You’ll not only advance your IT career, but also those you invest in.
