I was asked this very question. Eli the Computer guy put a video out about the Death of I.T. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Av9CI-_CSY and it was definitely a very interesting topic.

I definitely fall in between on this specific topic and I think I had a lot of valid information to provide here. Let me know what you think.

I love Eli vides…but some of your vides are too long..the 2 hour ones. 1 hour is okay. I hope you always keep it one hour and come up with more videos. So much is going on in tech and love to hear more from you.

IT is on its way out. Eventually, desktop support will be limited to just handing out equipment. Most people will access through the cloud. System Admins are on the way out faster as Software engineers are going to the cloud to get their systems.

This one breaks my heart, my great uncle owned tv repairs business in the 70s/80s/90s, I come from a family of engineers. i was so thrilled to get into IT, i started with home pc support, and working at a computer repair shop, i relay wanted to own my own shop. fast foward 6 years i am now a network admin, and im like shoot. the IT industry is slowly disappearing with AI replacing workers, and cloud solutions thank god i never paid stupid comptia for any certs. . I Dont think the average worker understands that big changes are coming . you see the infrastructure is built. I am currently looking into web design, and marketing. As much as i love the IT industry i see it slowly dying, especially the help desk guys. just like it did for pc repair gigs. People who have ben in the industry for a few years and have changed jobs / and positions IE desktop support/helpdesk/pcrepair consultants etc know what i am talking about. i wish all my Fellow NERDS to stay strong, im 34 and i love tech.. great vid man. nice content

Alot of companies are getting wise to hiring their own IT team for inhouse problems so IT is alive and kicking like 🐔

I disagree, I think IT help desk is needed in any large company because a lot of people, still no nothing about computers and will call the IT person, for everything related to there job. Windows 10 role out for example, Windows 7 is dead in enterprise going forward in 2020, a lot of users know nothing about Windows 10 and will want IT to help them out. I just worked a contract for a Windows 10 role out and it was brutal on how many dumb questions I got, will my keyboard,mouse, printers, and monitors still work with Windows 10. A user will always make mistakes and that's why they need a very helpful IT person. Network Administrators have no patients to deal with people. There still will be a lot of old people in the work force that still need help in computers. You could have every certification and you could still have to help a user install a printer or any basic issue. I do think eventually almost all IT jobs in the future will be redundant because of artificial intelligence.

Basically, it's like this folks! I was in IT for roughly 16 years! I was a part of that whole 9/11 IT bubble burst and I can honestly say that being a "Computer Tech Only!" is NOT a good place to sitting in 2018. I am giving you some real-world advice when I say if you are a "Computer Tech" only then you will suffer! I don't AGREE with this guy wholeheartedly with him saying that a newbie should not focus on becoming a computer technician; that is a bowl of crap! He's generalizing Computer Tech and not stating the fact that NOT knowing how a computer actually functions is really a NEGATIVE in your career as an IT professional. I'm from the school of thought that having a solid foundation is KEY!!! So if you want to be a "Computer Tech" here is what I suggest right out of the gate! Become DOD certified meaning Go get your CompTIA A+ NET+ and Security+ Certifications RIGHT NOW! I guarantee you that it will be the BEST IT career decision you've ever made! Along with those certs go apply for a Public Trust Security Clearance! The IT landscape is changing in many ways; some of them due to the lack of qualified gatekeepers! So in order to secure your lively hood in the IT business, you NEED to up your game!

How about Comeputer security?

Hunter Smith says:

I kinda disagree with this, I work for a tech school and most of our repairs are in house and we have a very large staff of IT professionals.
