Let’s talk about how to further your career. Not a new discussion, but one that takes on different nuance as IT continues to evolve. And that evolution is happening at a rapid rate lately, finally sweeping networking along with it as we see orchestrated, automated, unified IT stacks start to take hold in the enterprise.
How do you take your current skill set and evolve it to match the needs of modern IT? Will jobs in your country continue to be outsourced in one form or another? Will the IT world even need infrastructure engineers?
To help us explore these topics is Katherine McNamara. Katherine is a consulting systems engineer and blogs at Network-Node.com. This show was inspired by a couple of her recent posts on why the IT industry needs more skilled engineers, and a helpful list of training resources.
