This project work is one of those business investments that will ordinarily be successful “come rain, come shine” proffering solutions to the problem of over 3 million people. It’s more of an invention than an ordinary business investment. “An invention, if well-branded, make you brag and beat your chest on definiteness of your cash return” – Bill Gate FEASIBILITY AND VIABILITY STUDY REPORT ON PUBLISHING OF I.T. CAREER GUIDE & MOTIVATIONAL BOOK Information Technology (short of words) had grown to be the most profiting sector in the world with a continuum of knowledge. It had changed the order of things and business and has brought ease. Government, companies, organizations and individuals are all advancing their business through I.T. supports. Due to the merits of global opportunities, all countries are now adopting various I.T. policies to ensure her citizenry acquire I.T. skills to make them relevant in the global village. In Nigeria, I.T. is a booming market! Unfortunately high-end I.T. skilled professionals are needed to drive the industry. Majority of our industrial process still await automation. Due to government negligence, our schools and universities curriculum of studies does not have good practical ingredient of I.T. skills. Thus, there is a big gap between graduates been turned out by our universities and the actual I.T. skills demanded in the business community. Quite a number of I.T. training companies are taking this opportunity for business. However, the choice of which career path, how to start, which certification track to pursue, and the cost effective way of becoming a top notch I.T. professional are the usual questions the

“beginners” do ask. A lot of people want to know the opportunities, trends, certifications and jobs there that exists in the I.T. world. A much awaited book is a career guide piece for the prospective and experienced I.T. professionals. From our research, its seen that students have been for long expecting such information resource materials. Especially in gatherings like;  I.T. related seminars  Capacity building programs  Career counseling events in secondary schools  Front office of I.T. training companies. On the various mailing lists and I.T. related blogs, one would see young folks asking professionals on which career path to follow, if certification is a good substitute to university degree. A book that packages these and other frequently asked questions have been long awaited, that is- an estimate of 3 million readers in high schools, tertiary institutions, I.T firms and I.T units of corporate organizations awaits this germ of an idea. GOVERNMENT POLICY AND MARKETING CLIMATE One of the critical objectives of government industrial policy as illustrated in the Nigeria I.T policy of 1999 is to;  Encourage private and government parastatals to increase I.T. awareness.  Increase the promotion of indigenous manpower in the I.T. sector in order to develop high-end, top-notched skillful I.T. professionals who are Nigerians to compete in the global economy.  Advocate I.T. skills and knowledge to alleviate poverty


The proposed book has the potential of helping to achieve the goals outlined above. To realize these objectives we shall organize a nation-wide talk show on I.T. career building and capacity development program to motivate our target market and put the book at their “doorstep”. We would also take the advantage of advertising for I.T. training companies through organized seminars and on the pages the book. OUTLINE OF THE BOOK The book titled “The Diary of I.T. Professionals” evolved from a 3 years industrial research with experienced professionals, in which their vital contributions and opinions are well documented in the pages of the book. They gave soft and technical advice on how to make career pathways in the I.T. sector. The book is developed into 9 chapters;  Chapter 1: The author explored his creative writing skills to paint the I.T. industry in “blues” to his audience. He illustrates the prospect in I.T. industry in a dramatic prose which begird a promising future for whoever pursue the most sought-after skills. It further illustrates the 21 st century as an age where the anyone without I.T. skills would termed as an illiterate. This chapter is quite inviting to the extent that it can seize the attention of its reader till the end of the book. It poses a lot of challenge to its reader and such a one would be tempted to get an I.T. skills almost immediately. Subsequent chapters discussed each career path like;  Computer Networking  Software Engineering

 Database Engineering  Graphics and multimedia professionals  Web design and Development  Network and information system security Each of these career paths are further broken down into sections;       Introduction Role/Nature Certifications Educational Background Salary Survey Ask the Experts
