Information Technology as a Career

Information Technology. What is it? It is the use of computers, computer software and computer networks to transmit, process and store information (or data). It is happening all around us every day. From the cash registers at your local department store to your favorite restaurant. It is on the job in your cell phone and your car's GPS. It helps us travel as tools to control traffic lights and air traffic schedules. We even rely on it to manage our money within our financial institutions.

So, with so much Information Technology in the world around us, what does it take for a growing young person to make a career out of it? I'll tell you.
