Who is an IT professional ?

 

Who is not ? May be the question should be that who is not an IT professional in today’s world ? Any person who has taken special education or is technically skilled or is employed to perform tasks on computer can be termed as an IT professional. Information Technology (IT) professional is a broader term and does not necessarily mean a software programmer who writes thousands of codes in programming languages like C#, JAVA, PHP, Python etc. Even a blogger who expresses his knowledge on a web page or a YouTuber who shoots videos by his DSLR/ Smartphone camera and does video editing or or a BPO/MNC employee who spends hours in front of digital screens also qualifies the criteria of an IT professional. Apparently most of the people and especially the youth that uses information technology in the professional life fall in the aforesaid segment.
