Business intelligence is hot right now, but the jobs are a tad tricky, writes Simon Danczuk.
If you are an employee of a big company, there is a good chance that you will get a new job, and a lot of the time you will have to do it while your co-workers are busy.
But if you are a small company, chances are you are going to be making a career change in a matter of months.
There are jobs available for everyone, even those who have never worked in the field, and it is an extremely rewarding career to have.
However, with the economy still recovering from the recession, there are plenty of people looking for new jobs, which means there is little demand for intelligence and information technology (IT) jobs.
What is intelligence and IT?
An IT job is essentially a specialist, technical, or technical support role in an organisation, usually in the form of software or hardware, and is usually in a company or department.
For example, a computer programmer would be an IT professional.
An analyst or system administrator is someone who works on the back end of an organisation and helps to keep IT running smoothly, with monitoring, and troubleshooting.
The job is often associated with information technology, so IT is often a part of the name of the job.
How long do you work for?
Depending on the company, you may be hired for an average of 10-15 hours per week, or sometimes more.
In the past, a full-time IT employee might work up to 15 hours a week.
Are there benefits?
The typical salary of an IT employee can be as little as £13,000-£20,000 a year.
And there are many benefits associated with this job.
It is usually paid overtime, which is good for those who can work on a part-time basis.
Companies can offer flexible working hours, including weekends, holidays, and paid holidays.
It is also possible to work from home, and there are also a few job-related perks.
You can work remotely, and you can work from a home computer.
Additionally, there can be a range of job-specific benefits, such as training and career development, such a mentoring scheme or a professional development programme.
Is it good for the environment?
If an IT worker works at a company that is close to the people they work with, it is likely they will be more environmentally friendly.
Many IT companies in the UK and the US have policies to protect the environment.
They include building green roofs and other forms of insulation, which helps to reduce the impact of greenhouse gases.
These are great steps towards greener living, and they are not just for people who live close to a building.
Can you find an IT job?
There is currently a job market for IT professionals.
While some jobs are good for individuals, others can be good for large companies.
Most of these jobs are very low-pay, but there are opportunities for those with skills and experience.
Do you want to do IT for the rest of your life?
In many cases, yes.
One of the best ways to make money is to take IT jobs, and this is not always possible.
To be successful, IT jobs must be flexible, have a strong business plan, and be able to manage your team and work on an ongoing basis.
What are some other jobs you would like to see in the IT sector?
It would be great to see more women and ethnic minorities join the IT workforce.
Employers should also recruit people who speak languages other than English and work with the people from different cultures.
People who are passionate about technology and technology-related careers can help the economy and society.
