The answers to that question are, fortunately, fairly unlimited. Qualified IT managers work in a number of different positions, capacities, and environments, depending upon their own skills and preferences. If you're new to the field and haven't yet determined the type of IT managing job you would like to have, we suggest you spend some time researching your options.

Most IT managers are employed by businesses or large companies. Their job is to manage and basically oversee the technological and various other needs of that company or business. This might be accomplished by working in teams or by working individually, depending on the size of a business or company and its individual needs. Some IT managers might be "on call," meaning they only work when called upon. Usually, these professionals will work for several different businesses or companies. Some people, however, work with one particular company or business exclusively, either by being on call or by being onsite at the workplace all day. Obviously, there are many different ways to work on the business side of this field.

A less common but highly sought after form of IT work is through work done for the government and/or government agencies. Individuals working in this regard carry out many of the same functions as they would in the business world, but in this circumstance they are working for the local, state, or even national government. In order to qualify for such positions, a least a bachelor's degree is necessary. Furthermore, candidates have to be able to pass extensive background testing and to be discreet and ethical at all times.

Some IT managers work on their own, as freelancers. In this case, they are not employed in the traditional sense, but are instead self-employed. They might advertise their services in a number of different ways to the general public or to a special subset of the public, such as only working with those involved in animation or video game design. Freelancers, of course, set their own hours and rates, but they frequently suffer due to lack of job and pay stability and end up taking on more traditional types of work.

IT managers can obviously work in a wide variety of different ways and settings. Some pay better than others, and some have stauncher requirements and necessary qualifications than others. What is important is not which job you choose to do or even what you make but that you pick the one that is truly right for you and that you will enjoy the most.
