Default Benefits of Working in a Data Center

Data centers are inhabited with individuals who are fairly intelligent, usually skilled professionals with an educational background. The benefit of surrounding yourself with knowledgeable individuals is that it enhances your own technical aptitude and empowers your keen technical sense. Another benefit is many times the operations are around the clock (24/7), which means you may have the option of being flexible and working flex schedules, at your leisure. The biggest benefit is "stability". The fact being that so many operations, calculations, and transactions depend solely on datacenters - society cannot afford to lose them. Data centers will always be around and continue to thrive, so this means DC jobs will never fall short. Even in the wake of economic hardships, datacenters still did not take a plunge or lose its clarity. If you are reading this article right now, then more than likely at some point a data center involvement allowed me to deliver this article to you. Data center jobs are for life

And I remember saying something similar about mobile phones just before the tech bubble burst in 2000, taking numerous telecoms giants with it...

The lesson I learned was that, while the sector may survive, it's no guarantee that individual organisations are competently managed.

Yes, working at DC is not much interesting all the time. You can visit and work 2-3 hours to do the racking and cabling. Doing full time job at DC is not enjoyable. If you getting int DC field and want to learn about it, then is would be a ideal job for you. Most of the Administrators and Developers don't know the physical infrastructure.

Working in a data center is a good job for someone with some advanced technological knowledge. People can learn a great deal about the IT industry and the web hosting world by working in a data center. There are so many data centers that these jobs can be in high demand for qualified individuals (allowing for the opportunity to earn a good income).

Working in a data center is an enjoyable job if you love technology. It is a great way to gain some experience if you are someday hoping to own your own hosting company or to manage a data center.

it sounds rather monotonous to me.plus it sounds like u'd have to be on call 24x7. it seems like the place to be if your hosting company is all abt innovative ways to cut cost and stuff, but other than that how much can you learn about racking and wiring?
Does a fresh graduate from college stand a chance of survival in such a challenging atmosphere?
