As an IT people, I sometimes encounter people saying IT people has lesser loads and an easy-go-lucky job because they dont see the real life in IT. They don't realize that in times of need and downtime, IT people are the super man/Hero. They are the one who spent holydays or non-working days for improvements and productivity as well as business continuity . They just need to realize that being an IT personel needs deep knowledge, critical thinking skills and hardwork to make a company successful..IT people even not seen what they are doing is still one of the challenging role in a company..Its fun and full of adventure.. =)

I know IT work can be very tired and difficult. As my husband is a programmer. I think IT people are always needed in many fields. As today there are so many things depend on the computer. It makes our life better and efficient. I love China

I am an IT support analyst and I enjoy my job and all. I use to think that IT support people are under-appreciated and taken for granted. I have learned that IT support staff are critical to the mission of any company. If you think about it, when computer systems are not working, people can't get work done. IT people are needed to set up IT systems to meet business needs.
