9) Frequently Asked Questions about Technical Training:

Each month Jeff Love will answer one of the frequently asked questions we receive about computer and technical training and career development. They will be archived on a separate FAQ page on our website after several months.

April 2001 FAQ:

I would like to pursue a career in technology and have no experience in Information Technology. I am currently learning Java and plan to take up XML. How should I proceed preparing myself for a technology career?

Answer:

You may have to start you career in some area such as software testing, call center help support technician, or networking or hardware technician trainee. That's ok, what you need to do is get your foot in the door and start working in an IT environment. You should really consider earning an undergraduate (2 or 4 year) IT degree, because this will help your career greatly in the long run, giving you more options and opportunities for responsibility. Also, you should consider getting certified, such as the A+, Network+, MCSE, or Sun Java Programmer certifications.

Here are some things you can do to help yourself get into the IT field and to gain some experience:

You can look for volunteer opportunities to assist in computerization efforts. There are many organizations that could use volunteer help, such as local area schools, churches, community centers, nonprofits, service and civic organizations, and other community groups.

Search for an internship. Many companies offer candidates an opportunity to work as interns while they are studying the technology. This is a great way to get experience while you learn so check into internship programs at companies that you have an interest in working for. Here are some job internship sites: <http://www.intelligentedu.com/job_resources.html#grads>.

Learn HTML - Knowledge of the Web is quickly becoming a key skill for technology professionals, whether they work in tech support or as a database architect. Learning HTML, the language used to display Web pages, is a first step in becoming Web savvy. (Check out http://www.intelligentedu.com/cat1.html and page down once or twice for the best free html and web design courses on the web.) Then publish some web sites you can show to an interviewer that illustrate your skills.

Read Computer Books - Visit your local bookstore, and then head to the shelves with computer books. If it's a megastore, you'll find hundreds of books, many with obscure titles and topics. Simply perusing books about the industry and specific topics (like programming and networking) will help you explore the variety of jobs the technology field.

Write a Program - Programming and application development is an essential task for technology pros. Scores of languages exist: C++, Java, Visual Basic and lots more. Learning to program with JavaScript is a relatively quick way to get started with programming, as you're able to program with nothing more than a Web browser, a word processing program and the help of a free tutorial (look at the Site Navigation by Topic table on my home page at http://www.intelligentedu.com#navigation for free courses and tutorials in C/C++/Java/Javascript and others). You can put your application a floppy, a Zip drive, or your laptop to bring to an interview to demonstrate your skill.

Enroll in a Workshop - Community colleges, universities and technology training centers often offer weekend or evening workshops with entry-level instruction in programming, Web development and networking.

Build a Web Site - Forget about those automated homepage builders. Instead, use your knowledge of HTML and JavaScript as a way to display your prowess with Web technologies. Experiment. Have fun. And focus on useful tools, rather than glitzy graphics.

Talk to Technology Professionals - People working in the "trenches" of the industry can provide lots of guidance to people getting started. Ask friends and colleagues for contacts in the industry. Schedule short phone conversations or meetings geared toward asking questions about technology careers. What do they do in a typical day? What skills do they need to know? What advice do they have for newbies like you? You can also check out Monster's Job Q&As to get a sense of what technology pros do at their jobs.

I suggest for you to go to a computer users group and ask about the local schools, local hiring trends, which companies are hiring, which non-profits need volunteers, etc. Ask around at the user group meetings and try to meet as many people as you can who are experienced in the areas you want to learn and become experienced in. Maybe you can also find a mentor at one of the user groups.

You can find computer user groups in your local area at these 2 sites:

http://easyrsvp.com/ugotw/ - User Groups on the Web.

I hope this helps you.
