IT Careers on the Rise

Fall 2020

| By: Britten, Casey

Remote working fuels need for IT technicians.

If we’ve learned anything from 2020, it’s that more people than ever before are working from home. 

This means increased demands on information technology (IT) services and infrastructure. As a result, IT careers have become even more in-demand as businesses work to develop new solutions to support work-from-home staff. 

Sam Nail, IT Desktop Support Manager at Alta Resources in Neenah, explains, “There’s nothing simple about providing IT services anymore. It’s just more complicated, requiring more people to support.”

Alta relies on the skills FVTC grads bring to the job. “Fox Valley Tech graduates bring a good foundation of technical skills and wide knowledge of the standard IT services that exist in today’s world,” Nail says. “They’re adaptable and have a strong passion for technology, which keeps them searching for the next cool opportunity.”
