Career opportunities in a technology world


© 2020, Valters Žilvinskus

My chosen profession, a computer systems technician, it is opening wide paths in a technology world that is rapidly evolving. I think this choice is right and I already see that the career opportunities are very broad. The profession is demanded, it includes a wide range of technologies and provides a lot of knowledge about information technologies.
As part of my training about technical knowledge, I have had the opportunity to work with the information technology specialists of the Computer Department while studying. After graduating I remained a full-time employee at the Riga State Technical School and joined the Riga Technical University to study Information Technology, in order to deepen my knowledge in the sector.
The learning experience though Erasmus+ mobility in Spain provided more insight into computer systems and their maintenance in other European countries, as well as the opportunity to practice this profession at international level, to get to know people outside Latvia and to practice my English knowledge.
I have chosen the next challenge in my career to start pedagogical activities by providing lessons in my field.
