Description

PRAISE FOR THE BOOK “Ian Fisher has produced a comprehensive and eminently useful volume. Anyone contemplating entering the Information Technology workplace, and even those already there, will benefit from this thoughtfully considered and beautifully organized guidebook that addresses every relevant topic, including a frank discussion of outsourcing and its impact on the IT job market. Enthusiastically recommended.” Dennis Green, Director Information Technology programs Columbia University – School of Continuing Education "Ian Fisher’s new book is an indispensable compass for those beginning their career journey into the largely-uncharted information technology field. Like the best maps and field guides, it provides a complete and clear exploration of the varied and often confusing IT terrain—from identifying the personal skills prerequisite for different IT career paths to navigating the myriad IT educational and training options and ultimately arriving successfully at that first position. Don’t leave “home” without it! Dr. Richard Vigilante, Executive Director Jesuit Distance Education Network New York, NY "Very few people consciously select their careers. Most start a profession without really understanding the associated field, responsibilities, compensation, and sacrifices; this is especially true in the volatile Information Technology industry. Ian Fisher’s excellent “How to Start a Career in Information Technology”, provides step-by-step guidance on making that choice, from exploring the basic question of “Is a career in Information Technology right for me?” to presenting suggestions on how to find one’s first IT position. It comes highly recommended." Cynthia Cravens, Director Information Technology Program Jewish Vocational Services San Francisco, CA “Ian Fisher’s book ‘How to Start a Career in Information Technology’ is an excellent resource to anyone considering a career in the IT field. The High Tech world is here to stay. This book provides the kind of information needed for the prospective techie. Many schools and programs offer IT training; this book teaches how to target your interests, and develop that interest into an IT career.” L’esa Guilian, Ph.D. Director, Human Resources California Institute of Integral Studies San Francisco, CA “A great source and step-by-step guide to the career assessment and job search process. This book is an easy read and the ideas can be readily implemented” Dr. Lois Blades-Rosado, Executive Director State University of New York-Brooklyn Educational Opportunity Center Brooklyn, NY “This book written on the field of Information Technology, is one of the best resources of its kind on this field of work. Mr. Fisher has concentrated on this one career area in a very thorough fashion. The book gives the user ideas and information on the pluses and minuses of a bachelor’s degree vs. a certificate, and how this may impact earnings potential. It is very non-judgmental regarding education requirements, and shows that there are possibilities in IT at every education level from certificate through a baccalaureate degree. I think anyone who is thinking of IT as a possible career will find this book extremely useful.” M. Sumyyah Bilal Chief Executive Officer EUREKA, CCIS Richmond, CA “Should be required reading for anyone contemplating an IT career. Presents complicated information in a clear, interesting, and concise manner. Reader-friendly, demystifying, thoughtful, practical.” Merble Reagon, Executive Director The Women’s Center for Education and Career Advancement New York City
