There is an interesting article on the 10 Critical Skills for Today’s IT Workforce, posted on the Creating IT Futures website: http://www.creatingitfutures.org/inspiring-success/blog/creating-it-futures/2017/03/21/10-critical-skills-for-today-s-it-workforce
I believe we all have a role in our own career path and this article reinforces that professional development is key to paving your future in IT. Continuous education should now be a part of every IT professional’s yearly plan. The world of IT is complex and constantly changing, and we need to stay on top of industry changes. I like that this article advised IT professionals to focus their learning on a few topics of interest rather than try to be a generalist. It is better to be in an expert on a few things and continue to hone those skills as your move through your career path.
Once you get to a good place in your own career, the article also states the importance of mentoring the next generation of IT workers. Sharing your passion with less experienced workers helps keep them engaged and excited about their own career path.
