Careers in the computer field

Postby Novice2000 » Tue Nov 20, 2007 8:47 pm

I heard that there are tons of people out there who have computer degrees and haven't been able to find a job in the field, even 5, 6, or even 7 years after getting their degree. I also heard that people who are in the field have had their salaries severely reduced or have even been let go. Is the computer field really that bad?

Also, I know someone who has an Associates degree in Computer Information Systems. He has seen an ad in the paper for an entry level tech support position for an internet service provider. He applied for this position and even got a call from them for an interview. It only pays $8 an hour. He makes $18 an hour as a welder. He got his degree back in 2003 and hasn't been able to find work in that field since he got his degree. Does anyone here think it would be worth it for him to leave his present job, paying $18 an hour, to pursue this tech support position, paying $8 an hour, to get his foot in the door in the IT industry? Does anyone even think that this position will teach him enough or make enough of a difference on his resume to help him get hired on in the IT field? Will employers looking for IT people consider someone with this kind of experience?

If this does help, how long do you think it will take for him to start making more money at other companies? How much more money? And how long will it take to make certain amounts more?

And how does everyone see the IT field right now, in the near future, and in the future? Does it look good for people getting in to it or not?
