IT vs Rest


   IT is one of the few fields where salary is hefty but Fame is less. Few ones become popular like Mr. Mark Zuckerberg, Mr. Jeff Bezos, Mr. Steve Jobs or Mr. Bill Gates. Rest of them are destined for jobs which requires nerve wrecking logic and minute attention to details. Not to mention there are health hazards sitting in front of a PC and looking at long, tiring lines of code. In case of Hardware one gets tired looking at various Chips and Sectors for possible faults. IT Management is a difficult task to handle with time, money and resource constraints imposed on Projects. The worst part is Designing and Developing to Consumer Demands.

   But the lure of Healthy Salary, Silicon Valley and the fact that those on the rich person's list are in one way or other associated with Information Technology is too much of a charm to pull off. But for those who don't cut it in IT Field need to understand that most of the IT Experts are going to work for Businesses and Clients. After all they are support system and side artists which drive a business behind the back. Also the tags of Nerd or Geek aren't too much to be proud of be it a Male or Female IT Candidate. So others not in IT Business need to worry not and work in a field which brings out their true potential.
