Every one Want Training for an I.T. Career
Every one of us has this big dream of having a very fulfilling career. Even before we entered school, we already had a vision of what we want to become in the future. Some want to be a doctor, lawyer, pilot, or engineer, while others want to be a dentist, politician, movie personality, teacher, or a guru in the scientific world. But as years pass by and as we grow older, chances are, our dream job changes from one to another. Upon being exposed to more ideas of career ventures, it is very easy for us to suddenly change plans and target a new line of work to land on after attaining a good education. But I also know a lot of people who do not have an exact dream job in mind. Their ambition is flexible and still a bit vague. I have friends back in elementary who wanted to be leaders in whatever field they will settle for, while others envision themselves of putting up their own business or company with no definite idea of what to manufacture and sell. Having this kind of dream is not of lesser conviction in life. Actually, having this kind of predisposition regarding a future career makes one a very flexible being. Given the vast uncertainty in the course of local and international economy, rigidity may be a bad thing and flexibility may just enable one to survive in whatever field.
I, for one, am a flexible career dreamer. Back in pre-school, I dreamed of becoming a lawyer someday. But this abruptly changed during elementary years when I discovered the very interesting field of social sciences-- I then wanted to be a historian. Come high school, I shifted to dreaming of becoming an economist to find cure to Africa's invincible poverty. I had two to three more career-dream shifts before entering college. To my own surprise, I ended up taking a degree on human resources in college over other college courses. Although I finished the degree, I always had this feeling inside of me that I will not box myself within career opportunities directly or closely related to my field only. I had always seen myself sifting through various career paths in my lifetime. I only had one constant vision through the years-- to excel in whatever I will be doing-- and that's what I'm still working on right now.
After college, I got introduced to the world of Information Technology. I think you have already guessed it by now, I decided to pursue an I.T. related job. With the basic knowledge that I have in common computer applications and some in a bit technical side for others, I sent my resume to a number of I.T. companies and confidently applied for an I.T. position. Again, I think you have already guessed it by now-- I had a very hard time landing on that dream job in the world of information technology. Due to my insistence, I still pursued my dream and was lucky enough to land a post in a local I.T. firm as a level 1 data encoder. I won't ask you anymore if you have already guessed it for I'm certain that you already have. I had a tough time adjusting and adapting to the very technological *industry of I.T.* I had to work double time to make sure I'm adeptly coping with the pace.
So I decided to get the I.T. education, which, I realized, I needed so badly. Thank heavens online education is already there. I did not have to burden myself of going back to campus and juggling with my workload. I signed up for an online enrichment computer course that caters for all levels of I.T. learners. Believe it or not, there are so many good online courses you can take to attain proficiency and competence, not just in I.T. but in almost all fields. There are language courses, real estate courses, and English courses, among others. Believe it or not, some of them actually include a free online course.
The I.T. course I took, which I highly commend, was from Vision2Learn free online training courses (http://www.bookstoretoday.com). Vision2Learn even offers basic I.T. courses for beginners and mid-level computer learners. These basic courses focus on software and hardware usage, internet applications, and simple *database techniques*. The one I took was the Wizard on the Web I.T. training course. Through it, I learned about web designing, computer networking, and e-commerce, all of which I really needed in my work and for career growth in the I.T. industry.
Now that I am already in a higher position in the company, I still won't stop broadening my knowledge and competence in information technology. Vision2Learn still has many free online training courses that I can take up anytime I need an upgrade. Who knows, I might sign up for their Call Center Skills training course if I suddenly decide to do a career shift one of these days.
