If you are well on your way to graduation or just starting your courses in IT, now is the best time to start exploring different IT career fields and consider your options and your preferences! Are you interested in Database Development or Administration or are you more inclined toward a Web Development career? Do you enjoy working on Programming assignments or are you more interested in Operating Systems or Hardware? Is a Network Engineer position for you? As you progress through school and complete more and more courses you will probably discover the answers to these questions, but it could be a good idea to do some research into employment trends in your field of interest, salary information and regional prospects too.



Whether this will be your first IT career or you are considering a mid-career change, an internship might be the best way to experiment and allow you to apply your knowledge and skills in an IT setting. You would be able to integrate and apply IT theory and practical skills in a business context as you perform IT tasks such as planning, administering or providing customer support for information services or technology services.
