This topic is a chance to discuss more about all what is need and all what should be considered to start or boost a career on IT and networking. The session covers from basic queries such as how to gain knowledge and how to get experience, to how to choose the right IT path and how to network with other professionals.

The event seeks to clarify the different scenarios and situations that new professionals on IT and networking may encounter, such as:

  • The amount of resources to study a technology topic and the importance to determine if the information is good or bad
  • Education vs Certifications? Lack of experience can justify certifications and education in the wrong way
  • How to narrow the huge amount of specializations available for IT-professionals?
  • Where find and reach out experienced professionals? Learning from them is the key for success
