Tech Skills Help Tylor’s Future Take Shape

For seven years, Tylor Kytasaari supported his family of 5 through bartending and construction jobs. But that didn’t provide enough flexibility or financial security. He wanted more.

“It was time for me to switch to something I actually wanted to do, instead of work that I did just to earn a paycheck.”

Browsing through his local community college catalogue, he was attracted to courses that taught computer networking and Internet technology. Tylor loved playing with Legos and building things as a child, and he could imagine himself building the digital networks of the future.

He was promoted six months later and is now a network engineer, a job that pays an average of $87,000/year.

Shortly after earning his associate’s degree and an IT industry certification, he landed a job as a network engineer apprentice with a healthcare technology company. He was promoted six months later and is now a network engineer, a job that pays an average of $87,000 per year.

Tylor didn’t know what he wanted to do right out of high school, but his future is finally taking shape. 

The Internet of Things (IoT) will change the world and spark lucrative careers for people who are creative and like solving problems.
