Top 7 Positions in IT Area

If your ship doesn’t come in, swim out to meet it!

Everyone should understand how hierarchy in any IT company works. A person should move gradually up the ladder from staff to CEO

A lot of people think that leadership is boring and not interesting. But this is a huge mistake. Being a head requires intelligence and effort as well as more responsibilities.

There are jobs and positions. And they are not the same. A “job” is about some specific skills and knowledge while a “position” is mostly about your management skills. So we can have a look at the IT area from the hierarchal point of view. We will find out which position to strive for and what responsibility to take.

These are the basic positions: a worker (staff, employees), a manager, an executive, a business owner (investor). Getting back to IT we have the following options:

IT consultancy: we begin as an intern consultant and move up to IT consultancy manager – in this position, your job is to evaluate the systems and do the research that no one else entirely understands. (medium salary $USD)

Salary: $78,284

Cloud computing: we begin as workers and move up to Cloud architect – you’ve heard of cloud computing of course. Although that storage space can’t be touched literally, it still needs to be organized and given an architecture.

Web developing: we begin as workers and move up tp Web design project manager -web developer – they create web pages, web applications and web content, but their skill set requires them to have excellent understanding of what makes a good operating system, what the average surfer finds visually stimulating and how to optimize sites for mobile tech, among numerous other skills. They also need proficiency in Web languages, like HTML and Javascript.
