Information technology. I cringe at times when I hear this because for a time “IT” was once considered the global umbrella term for all of web design, web development, and anything internet-related.
I suppose in some cultures it still does. *Shudder*
But for many of us we have a solid background coming right out of the IT-realm and it’s how we first interfaced with WordPress and how we found a love and passion for online publishing. I know many of my friends who are still stuck in cubefarms all across the US who love WordPress as much as their IT-job.
Ok, well, they may love their IT job more, but they are still my friends.
IT isn’t the first think you might think about when it comes to a new career or something that you’d like to add to your portfolio or repertoire but it might be an option for you, especially since it’s still as strong (and growing) as it’s ever been.
And besides, we all have a ton of IT staff to thank who keep our servers humming all day and all night long.
