The IT Industry Needs You!

There is no doubt there will always be a need for IT professionals. One NZ job site currently lists 2,000+ IT job vacancies, and with an IT qualification, the odds are in your favour for getting a job, and a well-paying one at that.

A qualification from Computer Power Plus will help you get the skills you need to enter this dynamic and fast growing industry.

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.

"The many different facets in an IT department also provide growth opportunities. Whether it’s moving up to a higher position, or going from one area of IT to another, there’s a range of interesting career paths you could take.

"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.”

Information Technology is the new “it” industry. It’s constantly growing and changing, making it exciting every day. With the right skill sets and the right passion, this could be the industry for you.
