The Minnesota State IT Center for Excellence is here to help you understand growing IT career areas and the skills, courses, or certifications you may need to start in that field.

Career Exploration can be a very exciting project, and luckily for those interested in tech, there are many career opportunities available. If you see a career that appeals to you, it is best to begin with your current Knowledge, Skills, and Abilities (KSAs) and then access what abilities you may still need to attain to be successful. 

 The following provides resources to help you better understand: (1) the careers options available to you, (2) the knowledge and skills necessary to be successful within those career paths, and (3) the industry certifications or professional memberships you should consider exploring as you journey through your educational track.
