About the IT Sector
In recent years, the number of professions covered by the term “Information Technology” has grown almost exponentially, but simply put, it describes any job or position focussed primarily on computing or computer systems.
Today, there are few businesses that could survive without some form of IT support, and IT professionals are in greater demand than ever before. Nevertheless, the sector is a challenging
place, and phenomena such as obsolescence, shifting business models, tough competition, and cybercrime mean that IT professionals need to be able to adapt and learn quickly, and to have
a high tolerance for frustration.
As an often highly-specialised industry, certain IT roles have barriers to entry such as understanding and manipulating programming languages, but these skills can often be picked up on
vocational courses and a university degree may not be a requirement.
