One of the best things about IT management is that there is more than just one way or one environment in which to work. Those with IT backgrounds can work in a wide variety of different capacities and positions. Some IT managers, for example, help to oversee businesses. Others work in governmental capacities, while some strike out on their own as freelancers, with many even forming their own IT companies. Professionals can work in teams, as team managers, or on their own. In short, you can find just about job to suit your needs and skills.

Of course, first you have to possess those skills! The good news for those with experience in the field is that an education is not always considered a necessity to be hired. While having an academic background in IT management can seriously increase your chances of being hired, most employers will choose those with experience over those with a degree and no real practice anytime. If you don't have experience though, then education is often a smart way to go, especially if you choose to pursue a related internship or other experiential learning opportunity after receiving your degree.

Schooling in the field doesn't have to be extensive. In fact, many professionals are currently working with only an associate's degree. Associate's degrees, which are useless in many other fields, provide a strong foundation in IT management and can be earned in as little as two years. Typically, they are earned from a community college, which means that the costs associated with earning one are extremely affordable. Furthermore, community colleges tend to offer classes in the evenings, at night, and fully or partially online, making it easy for students to balance their busy schedules with their education.

Those who want to pursue more educational training can opt for bachelor's degrees, master's degrees, and PhDs if they desire. These degrees are, of course, not a necessity or a requirement, but they can help to increase your salary and your chances of getting hired with top companies. As long as you make some effort to become educated and/or experienced in what you do, and as long as you truly are good at it and give it your all, you should have no problem securing a great and lifelong career in IT management in the beautiful state of Hawaii.
