IT employees are the backbone of many businesses, keeping companies running smoothly. Whether it’s a programmer who writes, tests, develops and maintains a business’s software, or a Network Engineer who configures and maintains a computer network system, these jobs are always in demand and growing.

Add to that, the technology world is constantly changing. Sue Kaur, the National Placement Manager for Computer Power Plus, says this makes a job in IT interesting and dynamic.

“You will always be updating your IT skills and keeping up with the current IT knowledge, which allows you to continue learning and discovering your strengths.

"With a qualification in IT you will acquire transferable skills. The skills you learn for a job in IT will prepare you for a multitude of other career opportunities.”
