Hello! My name is Ed Tittel and I’ve been commenting on, writing about, and answering questions on IT career issues for TechTarget since 1999 (learn more about me on my bio page at www.edtittel.dom). My goal in this blog is to provide information, advice, and hopefully also some insight about various ways to put more oomph into your IT career, especially if you’re starting to feel sidelined or off-track.
I plan to cover topics related to IT certifications (which ones, when, and why), soft skills development, continuing academic education (which degrees, when, and why), and other subjects intended to help readers open themselves up to new opportunities, to increase their skills and abilities, and hopefully, to help make them better and more attractive to current and prospective employers.
Of course, I can’t do this without your help. First and foremost, I’d like your feedback on my postings, with your candid assessment of their relevance, timeliness, and content. Second, I hope you’ll follow up with questions or comments that can help turn my postings into an ongoing conversation. Third, I hope you’ll use the IT Knowledge Exchange as a forum to raise any IT career or certification related questions you might have as well. Of course, I’ll be happy to answer those, and I have to believe those questions should provide plenty of fodder for blogs to come.
Thanks in advance for your time and attention. I look forward to a healthy and lively exchange of ideas, and hope the information I plan to share with you will be interesting and useful. See you again here soon!
