Today’s Datanauts episode is about your IT career and how to steer it in a positive direction. This show isn’t just about skills and training (although those play a part).
We focus on why you’re in IT and what you hope to get from this profession. Is it a sense of security? An opportunity to solve problems? A chance to get creative? Or something else entirely?
Our guest today is Neil Anderson, a cloud and data center trainer based in southeast Asia. We’ll talk with him about developing a career plan, and then how to execute it.
We’ll also talk about a survey he conducted of CTOs and HR heads about the skills and qualifications they’re looking for in IT, and what that means for your own professional development. We’ll also look at IT industry areas that have growth potential.
