A JOB THAT CLICKS IT CAN TAKE YOU TO MANY PLACES
IN THE past decade, Bryson Black has worked for an advertising agency, a construction firm and a state government department.
The opportunities to work across so many employment sectors is one of the many things he enjoys about working in the information technology industry.
“Anything that has a computer in it will have an IT person,” Mr Black said.
After five years working at the NSW Education Department, Mr Black has recently started a new role as the internal IT administrator for ClickView.
He is enjoying the challenge of the multifaceted role for the education video streaming service.
“I can really take ownership of the role, being more or less the one IT guy in the office,” Mr Black said.
“I deal with the day-to-day IT operations, day-to-day user issues. ordering and specking up servers and replacing faulty parts.”
Mr Black’s path to a career in IT was planned since he received his first computer as a 12-year-old.
“I was very interested in how it worked and pulling it apart and putting it back together again,” he said.
He started his career with many short-term contracts after completing a diploma in the area and continues to keep a personal interest in technology to this day.
“It’s important to keep up with what’s coming up – it’s very easy to get left behind,” he said.
“You need to have a hunger to learn about technology and just know how to have fun with it.”
