The reality of the job market is that, while the above-mentioned fields are what is ultimately available to grow into, the starting point is usually from a supporting role, where you would come in at a junior level providing technical support and then climbing your way up. This typically would be a help desk position that supports users of smaller computer system with trouble shooting and problem solving on devices such as PC’s, laptops, mobile phones etc. As you grow in confidence and skills, you should be able to step-up and support larger systems.
In a harsh economic climate like we have at present in South Africa, getting a foot hold into your career of choice can prove difficult. With that in mind, consider looking into internship as a first step in.
The advantage of this approach is that while the money is low to begin with, as an intern, you have room to learn without fear of getting demoted or fired in the event of making the wrong call. It also allows you to get experience and puts you at the top of the list when posts are available for a full-time position, which is where you can start getting the financial growth that we all seek.
