Career Opportunities in IT

As a Programmer you write, test, develop and maintain computer software programmes so your job could include everything from discussing requirements with a client, working out the design specifications, planning how the programs fit together and then writing the programs to identify faults, maintaining and upgrading programs.

As a Systems Administrator you’re the one who looks after an organisation’s computer hardware, computer software, networks and operating systems. Your day could see you installing new hardware and software, setting up computer networks and operating systems, researching and implementing new technology or training people to use the computer system.

Some people have a gift for figuring out how a computer works. If you’re one of those people you have a future as a computer Systems Technician. Your job would entail assembling, installing, maintaining and repairing computer hardware and software. Your ability to identify and solve problems would be invaluable in any organisation.

As a Software Architect you’re responsible for ensuring an organisation’s software enhances their overall business. So your role is to analyse software and design, and oversee the development of any new software system. Your day could include assessing software applications, creating architectural plans outlining the structure of new software applications, building prototypes, testing and reviewing software… and then fixing any problems.

If you enjoy being the one to provide solutions then a career as a Systems Analyst or Business Analyst could be the solution you’re looking for! A Systems Analyst researches the systems and procedures an organisation uses and then decides what computer applications could improve their business efficiency.

A Website Developer designs, produces and often maintains websites. Your day could include meeting with a client to discuss their website requirements and objectives, liaising with writers, designers and system administrators to develop workable content and visual elements, working out structure and a technical plan. Integrating the technical, visual and content aspects to produce a finished product.

See yourself as a bit of a problem solver? Then a Computer Systems Network Engineer has your name all over it. As a Network Engineer you assemble, install, maintain and repair computer hardware, software and related equipment. Your day could include planning and implementing networks, identifying and solving computer problems, updating and repairing equipment, running test programs and keeping detailed records of software and equipment.
