Do You Know What You Might Have to Do to Get Your First IT Job?

leave a comment »

Whether you are attempting to get your first job in IT or contemplating a career change, there is new evidence that suggests the employment prospects in IT are poised to improve in the immediate future.This according to a new study recently released:
The number of job vacancies (unfilled positions) for IT professionals increased by 23% in the 3rd quarter of 2009.
The number of job applications per position has reduced by 25% between the 2nd and 3rd quarter of 2009 (fewer applicants for open positions).
New job creation in IT will outpace the projected rate of worldwide employment by almost three times.
IT employment is expected to add 5.8 million new jobs by 2013, increasing from a current base of approximately 35 million.
Greatest growth in IT employment will come from areas in Central and Eastern Europe.
The IT job market is expected to return to pre-recession hiring/activity levels in 2010.
That’s the good news, but the burning question some of you might be asking is, “how do I get into IT without experience or qualifications”?I Have No QualificationsUnless you were fortunate to secure an IT position without any experience and/or with an employer that is willing to assist you with securing the necessary knowledge for the intended job role, this is where most of you begin.Whether it is training in the classroom, part of a degree at a university, certification training offered by a commercial training center or even dedicated self study effort;Get the necessary conceptual knowledge. Having the required theoretical knowledge is often a prerequisite for consideration and training and IT certifications are a credible means of demonstrating that you have acquired the necessary skills and knowledge.I Have No ExperienceLike other industries, this paradox exists in the IT industry as well. Here are some known and not-so-known strategies on how one could overcome the “no company will hire me without experience, so how do I get experience” question to allow you to;Get the necessary practical/hands-on knowledge.

Accept an IT position that is further down the” IT trough”. Simply put, but willing to be overqualified for your first IT position and start from the bottom and work your way up.

Seek employment with a small employer. Target companies that employ between 5-50 employees as they tend to have less formal hiring standards and less sophisticated requirements.

Trade your time for experience and references by volunteering. If your initial efforts to secure an IT position hasn’t paid off, offer your time and expertise to organizations in exchange for IT experience and references while you continue to look for full time employment.

Either moving where the jobs are or commuting to them. If you have applied for all the local positions, it’s time to widen your net. Be flexible with your terms on commuting and if necessary, be open to temporary relocation. If the jobs aren’t were you live, you must give consideration to going where the jobs are.

Become an IT contractor. Apply and accept any consultancy/contracting offers while you are looking for full time employment. Contract work is a win-win for anyone trying to get into IT for the first time—it not only pays, but allows you to rack up experience that will be considered for your future employer.

Start your own business. Although self employment is last option on this list, it doesn’t mean that it should be the last on yours. This might the first direction that some of you will take instead of seeking full time employment and it will allow you to gain the necessary hands-on experience required if you should decide to enter the W-2 workforce.
In the end, it only takes two things to get an IT job or anything else in life, knowledge and action—getting the knowledge is the first step, what happens next is up to you.
