Several years ago, I was offered several opportunities to change my career to IT. I would be sent to an IT school to study and train. At that time, however, my interest was in another field; so, I let them passed.
As years went by, I saw friends and relatives have gone or changed into IT careers. The changes in their careers changed their lives. Some relatives and good friends are currently holding juicy positions in big companies with higher income, bonuses and perks. Some have traveled almost around the world. A nephew, an IT consultant, who just arrived from abroad has shown us albums of his pictures in every country he visited.
The global demand for IT professionals at all levels are increasing and the opportunities are unbounded. So, if you are looking for a better career, think IT. And, if you are into it, advance or enhance it. How?

Now, I am wondering why I did not grab the opportunity to shift to IT career. I am happy with my current job but could have been happier had I changed to IT career. It is never too late. I can still shift to IT career anytime I wish.
