True heroes don’t wear capes or leap from tall buildings. Sometimes, they’re up all night studying code to see what went wrong that kept orders from shipping. At other times they’re developing new programs to help pharmacies track dangerous drug interactions. IT professionals can be heroes just as much as firefighters, law enforcement or others are heroes, too.
Think about how many lives your work impacts. No matter what industry you’re using your skills in, you’re improving the lives of people all around you through the work that you do. IT recruiters place people in all sorts of industries: manufacturing, retail, medical, and many others. Each of these are vital industries that provide useful services to people around the world.
Information technology is now ubiquitous in every place in society. From the phone in our pockets to the car system that “talks” to the manufacturer and sends messages, the Internet of Things (IoT) means that technology is now incorporated into devices that touch every human life in many ways.
So the next time you’re feeling blue, think about the work that you do. You aren’t “just” an IT person; you’re a superhero. You save companies from evil computer viruses and hackers! You destroy Trojans, worms, and other evil doers before they breach the gates of your firewall. You combine things that couldn’t be combined by integrating systems, and you find solutions to problems that people think are unsolvable. If that’s not the definition of a superhero, we don’t know what is!
