I have been working as a Technical Support Representative for the past year. It is my first tech job, after a long road to get here. I began my journey in 2001, and after many turns in the road, I finally completed my bachelor’s degree in Information Technology in 2014. It took me 4 years after graduation to get my first IT job. Now that I have been in the industry for a year, I understand why no one wanted to give me a chance. A college education doesn’t mean anything in this industry, experience is all that counts.
