做IT的十个理由 

 

1: 钱,钱,钱
1: Money, money, money
我们努力工作就是为了赚钱,而IT专业人士的努力工作的确得到了很好的补偿。报酬不仅仅是好而已,而是非常棒。根据美国劳工部《2010年美国就业与报酬情况概览》(表6,PDF)的统计数据 ,在所有的职业群体当中,计算机和数学2010年的排行并列第三,年均工资为77230美元。只有管理和法律的报酬比IT高。
While it is true that you work hard for your money, IT professionals are well compensated for that hard work. The pay isn’t just good, it’s great. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics’ An Overview of U.S. Occupational Employment and Wages in 2010 (Chart 6, PDF), computer and mathematical sciences ranked third in 2010 of all major occupational groups with an annual mean salary of $77,230. Only the management and legal occupations had higher earnings.
2: 专业
2: The professionals
如果你跟我一样,跟谁在一起工作是件非常重要的事情。毕竟,在你生命里将会有超过四分之一的时间要跟他们在一起。我跟专业的人和不那么专业的人都共事过。我倾向于接触前者、回避后者。我也在别的职业领域遇到过专业人士,如果要我列举说明的话,比如说国防工业,但是IT的专业人士依旧排行前列。
If you are like me, who you work with is extremely important. After all, more than one quarter of your working life will be spent with them. I have worked with professionals and those who weren’t so professional. I prefer the former and run from the latter. I have met professionals in other occupations, the defense industry to name one, but the professionalism of IT workers ranks right up there at the top.
3: 职业连续性
3: Career continuity
我第二次离开IT的时候,就只想着休息,什么事都不做。然后我发现(太迟了)离开自己的职业后想要返回会更加困难。最大的问题是潜在的老板会怎么看你。老板不希望看到你的履历中出现断层。这种不幸的机会可能会被你撞上,那就是你会发现对失业的歧视的真实性存在会给你带来一条艰困之道。
The second time I left IT, I wanted to take time off and do nothing. I found out, too late, that being away from your career can make it harder to return. The biggest problem is how you are perceived by a potential employer. Employers don’t like gaps in your resume. You may have the unfortunate opportunity to discover the hard way that discrimination of the unemployed is real.
4: 挑战
4: The challenges
我现则写计算机程序的其中一个理由是我发现它充满挑战。在编写代码的时候,前进的道路上没有一天是不会遇到至少一个障碍的。IT专业人士在解决困惑和问题中成长。有了正确的态度(这对于在IT上取得成功是必不可少的),障碍就会变成挑战。信息技术是充满挑战,但是你却不会感到厌烦。无论你在IT里面的角色怎样,你明天所遇到的挑战很可能就会跟今天所经历的不一样。
One reason I chose to write computer programs was that I found it challenging. When coding, not a day that went by that I didn’t run into at least one obstacle in my path. IT professionals thrive on solving puzzles and problems. With the right mindset (which is necessary to be successful in IT), obstacles become challenges. Information technologyis challenging, but you won’t find it boring. No matter what your role is in IT, the challenges you encounter tomorrow will likely be different from those you experience today.
5: 回报
5: The rewards
当你遇到挑战的时候是有回报的——这是选择并留在这个行当的另一个理由。当自己写的程序按照设计运行,没有错误出现的时候,或者是当一个长期的系统项目成功地按时完成的时候,我的职业满意度就会前所未有地高。好吧,也许你对拯救生命并没有什么帮助。但是,如果实在为医疗人员提供支持的话,那么你就是在拯救生命。同时你也在拯救蓝领和白领工人,拯救他们于单调乏味的、可由、也应该由机器完成的任务之中。喜欢做繁重工作的人寥寥无几。我职业生涯中建设的系统替代了若干的无意义工作。坦率地说, 除了少数几段艰难时期,意识到我正在帮助别人把工作做得更好之后,我工作结束的时候都是满意地离开的。无论你在IT的众所担当的角色是什么,帮助别人并出色完成工作都会令人产生自尊感和成就感,这都是很高的回报。
Challenges, when met, are rewarding — another reason to choose and stay in IT. I have never been more professionally satisfied than when a program I wrote actually worked as designed, without errors, or when a long-term systems project was successfully completed on time. Okay, so you’re probably not saving lives. But if you support the medical profession you are helping to save lives. And you’re saving blue- and white-collar workers the drudgery of tasks that can and should be done by a machine. Few people enjoy doing the grunt work. The systems I built during my career replaced numerous menial tasks. I can honestly say that except for a few rough patches, I left work at the end of the week satisfied, knowing that I was helping others do their jobs better. No matter what role you play in IT, helping people and a job well done create self-esteem and a sense of achievement that are highly rewarding.
正如TR的成员Chronological所说的那样,“有史以来最具挑战的性工作?也许是。最有内涵的工作?——100%确定。”
As TR member Chronological put it, “Most challenging jobs ever? Maybe. Most enriching jobs? — 100% sure.”
6: 畅销
6: Marketability
IT职业人员找工作保工作的机会要好得多。IT专业人士的前途一片光明——至少在美国是这样的。前20佳职业中有5个是IT岗位,前50大薪水最高且最具增长潜力的的职业里面有14个也是IT岗位,这是CNN金钱与薪资表的调查结果。
IT professionals have a much better chance of finding and keeping a job. The future looks bright for IT pros — at least in the United States. Five of the top 20 and 14 of the top 50 highest paying jobs with the most growth potential are IT jobs, as ranked by CNN Money and PayScale.
