Taking Off the Blinders If You Want to be an IT Pro
Taking Off the Blinders If You Want to be an IT Pro. Managers say the ideal would-be brides or bridegrooms in corporate IT attempt to broaden their skills, remove the visors that blind them to other corporate concerns and work longer hours than is expected.
This is especially true for supervisors who want to advance, says M. Victor Janulaitis, CEO of a California based IT consultancy. He warns that although good IT staffers are at a premium, workers shouldn't become cursed with self-importance. "Even in an employees' market, they can't have unrealistic expectations," he says.
Tomorrow's managers will become more entrepreneurial as companies place more responsibilities on internal IT, Janulaitis says.
