Information Technology Industry Sector

The information technology (IT) industry sector supports many IT jobs found in every career and business. And as organizations adopt and integrate increasingly sophisticated technology, employment in the IT sector is expected to increase faster than the average for all other occupations. Some of the fastest growing industries in the IT sector are Computer Software Engineers, Computer Systems Analysts, Network Systems and Data Communications, Computer Repair, Web site Design and Development, and Business Technologies. Careers in IT involve design, development, support, and management of hardware, software, multimedia, and systems integration services.

IT careers are divided into four pathways: Information Support and Services, the foundation of all successful business organizations today; Media Support and Services, involving the creation, design, and production of multimedia products and services; Network Communications, involving network analysis, planning, and implementation; and Programming and Systems Development, involving the design, development, and implementation of computer systems and software.
