In information technology field, there are various sectors where one can show their skills. Most of you might have already decided which career you want to go for while some of you might still have no idea regarding your career. Its totally fine to not have a plan as sometimes we don’t choose our career, the career chooses us. Some of you are willing to join this field for your personal interest, some of you are doing that because of your family’s pressure while some of you are planning to join IT because you don’t have any idea of which field you are interested in.
For the first and third group, we will guide you through the various degrees and careers in this field.
