Africans Have a Fear Of (Information Technology (IT) Careers!


Africans Have a Fear Of (Information Technology (IT) Careers!

Africans Have a Fear Of (Information Technology (IT) Careers!The number of Africans pursuing IT careers here in America is quite wanting, simply because of a misconception people have about IT. Information Technology (IT) careers are not all about coding.IT is very broad. You really don’t need to be a programmer to succeed in IT. There are lots of IT Jobs out there that do not require programming.


Personally, I can’t write a single line of code to save my a**, but I have been a very successful consultant, providing implementation solution for ERP tools from the front end, to fortune 500 companies in America.

Some of the amazing benefits of pursuing an IT career is that;

1.IT is the future. To me this is like the industrial revolution- which was the transition to new manufacturing processes in Europe and the United States, in the period from about 1760 to sometime between 1820 and 1840. Everything we handle right now is all about technology. This is an industry where you should be if you have the intellectual ability.

2.If you are in America as an International student, you have a high chance of getting work visas including green card. I am a beneficiary of that myself. I got my green card through employment. An achievement I am very proud of.

3.The pay is amazingly well. This is an industry where six figure salary is not a big deal. Honestly!!…..Like there is really good money guys. The kind of pay that will keep you extremely comfortable without the need to work overtime to make ends meet. I was able to make a six figure salary within 2 years of graduating from college.
