Did you know that IT is the 4th fastest growing career field? Did you also know that IT is at the top of the chart for highest worker shortages? In the late 1980’s and early 90’s, Technology was not listed as a major industry of employment. So much has changed since then and technology has changed every aspect of our lives.
The field of IT offers various fantastic job perks in addition to typical benefits such as health insurance, vacation time, and maternity leave. With baby boomers set to retire within the next ten years, it is time to guide the next generation into the future through IT development implementation, not merely as a hobby and social platform, but as a way to ensure the advancements of our future.
Unfortunately, the number of IT graduates across the United States makes up only one-half of the number of graduates necessary to grow the economy. By 2020, there will be 1 million unfulfilled software jobs in America. That’s why AIM Careerlink is focused on helping build the IT pipeline.
AIM Careerlink is launching a new online experience to explore opportunities in the field of IT. The “Set Your AIM” site takes an innovative approach to describing IT in 6 I’s: Integration, Investigation, Illumination, Imagination, Innovation, and Inspiration Technologies. If you are interested in an IT career or know someone who is, check out the video below.
