ITS is a growing field: The U.S. Department of Labor expects jobs for network and computer systems administrators to increase by nearly 28 percent by 2020. Increasing demand for high-tech communication systems in all sectors of the economy, combined with the impending retirement of the baby boom generation, means that there should be many jobs available in ITS.
Here are some resources you can access in your job search.
