Virtually all businesses use at least one computer for their data storage, invoicing and other accounting functions and to prepare client proposals and marketing materials. Many businesses use computer technology for much, much more, networking with off-site workers, meeting in real time with clients across the globe and selling their products and services to a global market via the Internet. All of this sophisticated computer equipment requires workers to program it, maintain it and repair it. To say that the IT field, in general, is a growth industry would be an understatement.
