Discussion: Roles and Responsibilities in IT


In this module, you are learning about various IT disciplines, roles, and responsibilities in the field, and the certifications and degrees that equip you for those roles. In this discussion, you will examine various IT roles to find one of interest to you. You will learn about the skills and technologies used in these roles and how they can be transferred to other IT disciplines.

For your initial post, use a website such as the Bureau of Labor and Statistics Occupational Outlook Handbook or CompTIA’s Cyberstates Interactive Map to determine your areas of interest in the IT field. Then, choose a job title or role in that area of interest. In your post, describe how this role is situated within the broader IT fields discussed in this unit, and define the responsibilities of the role.

In your responses to your peers, discuss the job title or role they chose. In your response, describe the tools, skills, and certifications your peer would need to be successful in the identified role. Additionally, describe at least one other role that these skills and certifications could be used in.
