It’s getting to that time of year when students, both high school and collegiate, are moving on to the next step toward the dream careers that—hopefully—will last them a lifetime. Do you know one such student? In anticipation of graduation season, we’ve put together a quick list of some of the career opportunities in the field of computer networking. Share this list with the student in your life to give them ideas on where their next step might be.

Remember, computer networking is a constantly evolving—and constantly necessary—field. A step toward such a career could be the best move for the young graduate in your life!

Network administrator: Network administrators are those professionals who are responsible for the day-to-day functions of the network—they run it like a well-oiled machine and are the people to go to when you need help installing network media, managing email and other connections, and creating backup systems for important files. They also help with cybersecurity.

Network technician: Have you ever had a problem with your computer or network? You most likely got it fixed with the help of a network technician. A network technician’s job is what is generally what it sounds like—these professionals work to repair, service or troubleshoot a network’s problems.

Systems administrator: An information systems administrator helps to create and maintain a company’s information infrastructure—they’re the go-to people to ask about what projects or programs are best for your company’s needs. They can also help to solve problems when it comes to your company’s IT needs.

Network engineer: Network engineers develop and maintain the network, or the ties and connections that keep your computer information accessible, connected and secure. A network engineer might install the required hardware to ensure your communication systems run smoothly, and (as is the case with other network careers), they have the know-how it takes to troubleshoot and solve any network issues that may come up.

Network analyst: One of the first things your business must go through before taking on a new networking team is getting analyzed to see what practices and products are best for your business—that’s a job for a network analyst. A network analyst will coordinate several of the processes that go into streamlining your company’s networking needs, and is one of the chief authorities on what the first steps will be in getting the networking up and running. Network analysts work closely with businesses and get to know them, all so they can figure out what’s going to work and what’s not.

Instructor: Someone has to teach all of the newest and most relevant information to budding computer network professionals… for some, that’s the perfect job. If you know an up-and-coming graduate who has a passion for computer science, an aptitude to keep up with the latest industry information, and the patience and understanding it takes to be a teacher or instructor, this could be the career for them.

The “newness” and relevance of the field of computer networking cannot be understated… and the quickly-growing job market in the industry agrees!
