In high school I didn’t really know what I wanted to do “when I grew up”, so I joined the Navy immediately after I graduated as an Information Systems Technician. This sparked my interest in the IT industry and drove me to pursue a college degree in the field after my enlistment was up. Fast forward to now and I have been working as an IT professional for the last 13+ years and have loved every minute of it. I can not think of many other professional pursuits where there are virtually unlimited opportunities when it comes to different types of companies you could work for or different types of jobs you could potentially have. Sometimes it can feel a bit overwhelming to think about all of the various technologies and languages that are out there, but at the same time it makes a person excited to know that they will never get bored as long as they are willing to continue to learn and improve their skill set.
