Tell Us How You Entered The IT Industry!

A recent social media post, writing a webinar on tape storage and a recent training has had me thinking of how I started in the IT industry.  It has been almost 12 years to the day that I entered the IT world.  My first job in the IT industry actually found me. I almost didn’t get the job because I wore a suit to the interview, but they were able to look past my formal appearance (“intimidating” as I was later told) to see my potential. Shortly after entering the IT world, I started to learn about the products I was purchasing. Storage systems that I didn’t even know existed until I had to learn the inner-workings of them.  Soon I found that I had a knack for IT.  Everything I was learning made sense to me, it just clicked.

It’s amazing how big and small the IT world is all at the same time. I have run across many in the IT world that love what they do and feel the same way I do. Are you one of them?  What’s your story? Did you find IT, or did IT find you?
