    Last time I was on the forum nearly a year ago. My plan was to get an IT job and start the IT career. So I have done CompTIA A+ and MCDST. However no good luck plus recession change my directions. I am studying now towards psychology degree and work as a tutor in a day centre for people with autism and learning disability.
    But the IT knowledge I have acquired is indispensible. Even I am not working as an IT I can still fix computer for myself, my family and all my friends. I know where and what hardware to buy so no more high price and bad advice from PC World. In addition many psychological researches nowadays are based on IT technology.

    In conclusion I just would like to say that even you do not have direct IT job it is still worth to pass some exams and get the knowledge which is very useful in different jobs too. My current employer hired me because beside psychological skills I have got something more to offer too.

    Psychology is something that has always interested me. At one point, I considered packing it all in and go the psychology route when I was thinking of alternative careers. Who knows, that might resurface tomorrow.

    User interface designing and human computer interaction sort of crosses over to psychology in some aspects. Does that sort of work appeal to you?
