IT a boring field for a career?

You’re kidding me. Over here! I, ME, KATRINA A. wants a job writing in IT. Please, pretty please.

ComputerWeekly reported yesterday on a UK study that found many college graduates didn’t want to enter information technology careers because they would be “boring.” These same grads acknowledged that job prospects and salaries in the industry were quite good, but still had no intention of pursuing careers in the field.
A job as a member of the Best Buy Geek Squad does not count as an IT career. Teaching math using the latest software is an IT career. So is managing development of a video game or making the Phoenix lander actually pick up chunks of ice. Statistical analysis of banking data or designing new web interfaces for sex education? Both IT careers.
