Why Information Technology?

The tech space boasts a variety of benefits for job seekers. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), computer and IT jobs are projected to grow 13% through 2030, so job opportunities are booming for professionals with these highly sought-after skills.

The fast-changing nature of technology creates unlimited options when it comes to career paths. From cybersecurity and programming to artificial intelligence (AI), there are many specializations you can pursue. Additionally, a big advantage to working in tech is high earning potential. Glassdoor reports that an IT professional in the U.S. makes an average of $67,437 per year. With certain specializations and a few years of experience, you can expect to earn a six-figure salary.
