“IT is huge, and there is room for you in it,” Vivian said. “You can go wherever you want to go in this field.”
Vivian Scott, customer relations manager at ASI System Integration Inc., is a problem-solver at heart, which naturally makes her career as a customer relations manager a great fit. The IT industry is always changing, so Vivian enjoys the opportunity to reinvent herself everyday.
“We are computer doctors, so there is always a need for specialists.”
Vivian’s perspective on the many benefits of an upwardly mobile career in information technology (IT) is part of a video series sponsored by CompTIA , the IT industry association, and its philanthropic arm, the Creating IT Futures Foundation.
The video series allows viewers to see first-hand what different technology jobs are like. Cybersecurity, networking, web design, customer support, data analysis and project management are just some of the careers featured.
Data shows that as many as 620,000 IT-related jobs went unfilled in 2014 because of a lack of qualified candidates. IT careers offer stability, flexibility and unlimited potential — plus salaries well above the national median wage, which is great for families.
