Why Computer Information Technology (CIT)?

According to, careers in Computer Information Technology are considered one of the 10 “Recession-proof” career fields.  For example, Network Administrators are ultimately responsible for keeping the computer network up and running. This requires a very specific skill set, and there is a relatively small pool of workers who have the necessary skills to be a systems administrator. This element of rarity keeps it in the pool of hot jobs in a slumping economy.
