Working in IT
In this book you will find ideas and inspiration to think about your own career and the careers of those who work for you, and to make a difference in both.
I am best known as the IT Skeptic, but in a past life I spent a lot of time developing and delivering professional development training for software consultants. I conceived, designed, developed and delivered training to over 80 staff. Feedback from attendees and their managers was generally positive and the program was judged a success. For some people it was life-changing. I am passionate about IT professionalism, IT career development, work-life balance, and saving geeks from themselves - and it is all in this book.
Of the several books I have written now, this one is my favourite.
Just finished reading 'Working in IT' and loved it! Really helped to clear some of my own discordant thoughts on the topic.
I have been following your work for a year now and really enjoy it. I have bought two of your books, real itsm and working in IT. The second really fills a niche. I spent 6 months with a top carrer consutancy as part of an IT redundancy package. I struggled to find any one who could give me IT career advice. This book does it and has helped motivate me.
The content comes from a number of articles I have published on sites such as IT Career Planet and Datamation, as well as on my websites www.ttjasi.org and www.ops4less.com and my personal www.bothol.org, and a little bit from www.itskeptic.org, all edited and improved.
