It is no secret that getting a degree in information technology can make a lot of sense for those entering college or making a career change. What is maybe hidden beneath the surface are the number of doors an information technology degree can open.
I graduated with a degree in information technology (specifically in software engineering) from Apollo College. I was able to find a job programming visual basic for a company that developed hotel accounting software. I quickly realized that programming was not for me. I didn't like the long hours, alone with my computer trying to build something to fit someone else's idea. There are people out there that love this kind of work, but it wasn't for me. I wasn't sure what I was going to do and I was depressed.
