A little while ago we presented the results of our research about youth and their career choices in IT. And the results were more than surprising. Did you know that only 2% of girls and 12,7% of boys are planning to have a career in IT?
You will ask – why so?
The answer is simple. There is not enough information about the opportunities and career development and there is not enough support from their teachers and families. We could go on and on about it, so let’s put it in simple words – they do not know how awesome it is!
What do most youngsters want to be in the future? Sportists, doctors, designers, artists. It’s not bad, but our perfect answer would be IT specialists. Especially as there will be lack of IT professionals in foreseeable future!
As the results of the research show, we can be the best ambassadors of IT industry, because part of the youngsters who are interested in IT field know someone already pursuing career in IT. And the most important part – IT is for everyone who is enthusiastic – boys and girls!
Let’s prove in our daily actions that IT is pretty amazing. Because only by by working hand in hand we can enlighten youth about creative aspects of IT industry and inspire them to pursue their careers in IT field.
