While there is no universally accepted way to prepare for a job in IT, most employers place a premium on some formal college education. At Herzing, you can align your education to your career goals. A 2-year degree is a prerequisite for many entry-level jobs, while a bachelor’s degree is required for others. To get into management and advance, many employers require a master’s degree.

Prospective entry-level IT job position titles include network and computer administrators, help desk technicians, IT support specialist, computer and information systems managers, systems analyst and network architect.

How do I advance in my IT career?

Advancing your information technology career depends on the actual career path you choose –such as computer networking, management or security. Some IT degree graduates move up in their career field simply by gaining on-the-job experience, while others who see themselves as a manager, analyst or IT security professional will need to earn a bachelor’s degree and potentially a master’s degree. For most Information Technology professionals, adding industry credentials throughout your career is beneficial to remaining relevant.
