Those in an IT career may not necessarily want to stay in the same place or use their same skill set for their entire career, and InformationWeek talked to one professional who changed careers by using her IT skillset. Don't let years of computing training go to waste; those skills can be used by professionals to make a break into another area.Susan Cramm is currently an executive coach and president of her own professional development business. She said workers should do their homework, volunteer for strategic roles, look into what the business world has to offer them with their skills and perhaps consider a consulting role in IT."If leaving IT altogether strikes you as too big a leap, consider taking on IT consulting projects within or outside of your organization," she told the source.
