I plan on relocating from Chicago to Columbus next year and want to get into IT. I graduated with an MIS degree in 2001 but have not held a related job since then and do not care to pick up and start over in my current field (real estate) in a new city when I move.
That being said, I am hoping that some of you can provide advice as to what I should spend the next year doing to make myself marketable. I.E. what languages/technologies to brush up on. I have done a little coding here and there since I have graduated but my skills are pretty weak right now.
Coding always came pretty easy for me, so I would imagine that I could take a few refresher courses here in Chicago and have a working knowledge. The problem is that I have no idea what employers are looking for these days.
Hopefully this isn't a pipe dream and I can really get back into IT. Thanks for anything you can offer as far as advice goes.
