  3. 3. Background<br />Not sure what career field to pursue?<br /> The Information Technology (IT) field offers people a chance to select from different types of occupations. This field has become so broad that people have different choices in whether or not they want to work in an office, from home or on the road. <br />Why choose to go to college for computers over any other degree program?<br /> First of all it is a fact that people who graduate from college tend to get better and higher paying jobs than those who only have a high school diploma. Therefore why not attend college for one of the most broad fields there is. There are different programs that can be taken to pursue a career in IT, for example there are degree programs, diploma programs, and certifications for the different IT fields . <br />

  17. 17. Recap<br />Looking at our economy status many people would be hesitant to start a new career program yet I believe it is worth taking the time to research this field.<br />The purpose of this presentation was to help educate those people who were undecided in the type of career they want to pursue. In this presentation you should have been able to view a list of different career fields and job titles. As well as the estimated wages available for this major group and lastly, some of the different educational programs available here in the Augusta Area. <br />I hope that my presentation has been helpful to those who are considering a job in this field because the bottom line is companies are expanding, requiring more computer automation and increasing the demand of people in the IT field.<br />
