Knowing where to start if you’re new to the profession can be overwhelming. There are a lot of elements to consider such as which career path should you take?

We can offer you our hard-earned advice, as well as all the latest information on tools and courses if you want to upskill.

About the Team

We are a mixture of IT geeks with writing experience and IT geeks without writing experience, so you’re likely to find some different styles here at IT Career Central. While our main reason for writing about the IT industry is to help other newbies and to share our knowledge, we also really love it! We love getting down to the nitty-gritty details about training, software, and certifications.

We know what it’s like to be new to this. We’ve been there Googling the best qualifications, trying to figure out which courses to take, attempting to wrap our heads around which career path to take. We know that IT careers involve a lot of training, and that can be a big investment. It can feel like a big risk. That’s why we want to make information about training, career roles, and salaries as transparent and clear as possible.

Think of us as your virtual guide – we’ll help point you in the right direction for your career and interests.

John Hughes

John Hughes believes in technology’s ability to change the world. Staying on the cutting edge is essential and he aims to help readers do just that.

Why are you giving advice on IT Career Central?

Technology is taking over the world and there’s no better time than this to be IT-savvy. My motivation is to enlighten readers about IT-related topics, as tech skills are becoming more of a necessity rather than an option.

Which IT job would you recommend for someone just out of school?

Has to be software, since it’s the foundation of most things in IT. With proper software skills, you can specialize in most fields within the tech space and progress steadily as you grow your career.

What entry-level job would you recommend as someone advances their career?

Once you have the basics, look at the various verticals, e.g systems engineering, full stack, cyber security, data, or general IT administration. From here, you can make your choice based on your preferences and current environment, but my favorite is Cyber Security. It’s a fast-rising field that’s a priority for many companies globally.

What is one piece of advice you’d give people looking for an IT career?

Be open to learning new stuff as the IT space is always changing. What was relevant in this space 10 years ago could be irrelevant today and don’t stick in the comfort of old knowledge. Leverage the internet which has tons of free learning resources that you can use to upskill.

David Borgogni

David Borgogni sees a bright future in IT and enjoys helping people navigate this exciting world.

Why are you giving advice on IT Career Central?

The IT industry has been reshaping the world as we know it for several decades, and all signs
indicate that it will continue to do so. I believe that being a part of this change and bringing
innovation to people’s lives matters. As an IT Career Central team member, I help young IT
professionals pave their career paths and become leaders in their fields.

Which IT job would you recommend for someone just out of school?

Choose a job that will help you gain practical experience in the field you specialize in. So, if you
studied Computer Science, landing an entry-level job as a back-end developer or software
developer will enable you to use the knowledge you have and gain the experience you need for
senior positions.

What entry-level job would you recommend as someone advances their career?

Big data is the future. Getting a junior Data Scientist position will put you on track to build a
successful career in one of the fastest-growing IT fields.

What is one piece of advice you’d give people looking for an IT career?

Never stop learning. The IT industry is a fast-changing environment and failing to keep up with
its pace will prevent you from moving forward in your career.
