The world of information technology is dominated by change. Those seeking a degree in this field should prepare themselves for a fast-paced job where every day is different. Changes in technology and software require constant attention in the maintenance of the various computer and network systems for which IT professionals are responsible.

Many in this field take industry certification programs in order to further their training and therefore their value to prospective employers. Some of the top certifications are in A++, Microsoft's MCSE and Cisco's CCNA.

Earnings Potential

A career in information technology can be quite lucrative. In addition to large salaries, compensation packages often include handsome benefit packages and stock options.

The minimum educational requirement for entry-level jobs is usually a bachelor's degree. For the more senior positions employers will be looking for individuals with a master's degree, extensive training, and experience in the field.
