What do you know about IT managing?

A high level of responsibility is one of the main challenges in being successful, says IT manager Leap Sok. “I have to make sure that my goals, my team’s goals and the company’s goals can be achieved at the same time,” he says.

After eight years of working in various IT positions, Leap Sok, is now the IT manager for Webessentials. His current job position involves working on networks, systems and programming.

Improving the capacity of his staff is another challenge for Leap. His advice to students wanting to become an IT manager is to try to obtain professional certificates in IT-related subjects, in addition to their bachelor’s degree.

Students should also try to build up networks with technology professionals and involve themselves in internships to get experience in the field. They also need to keep updated with all the latest IT developments.

“As the IT manager, he or she will lead, develop and manage information systems and technology infrastructure, coordinate and guide the direction of IT department and set strategy for integration of IT services and its needs.” He says.

Leap believes that goal of becoming an IT manager is attainable, but students need to grab any chances that come their way, in addition to having skills and experience. “Don’t wait to take the chance tomorrow if you can do it today,” he advises.
