Job Challenges of a Computer Expert In this section, I have listed five serious challenges facing a computer expert. This is not a scientific list.
The challenge of maintaining a balance between work hours and rest
One of the major problems for computer experts is the disruption of working hours and rest. Occasionally, during the month and year, the boundary between work and rest breaks and life goes out of balance.
Occasionally you can take a break during business hours (eg after delivering one phase of a project) and you can even take a break.
Sometimes, on the contrary, you are behind the computer late at night and still not having dinner and arriving home early in the morning. There are times when you may even be embarrassed to rest on a Friday or dare not take a break.
Work pressure is high in most computer companies (whether software, hardware or research). Of course, these days all people in different jobs suffer from stress and job stress.
But workplace stress is an inherent problem in some jobs, while in others it is caused by mismanagement and mismanagement.
In the IT industry, the problem of job stress is inherent and rooted in an unprecedented acceleration of industry developments. The public perception of the computer world is that computers are fast and make things easy.
Therefore, many customers of computer companies think that their services should be delivered quickly and accurately. Therefore, there is a great deal of psychological pressure on computer experts to adapt to these expectations.
For this reason, long working hours and the overwhelming amount of mental and software work become a chronic condition and the mental health of experts is compromises in the long run.
3. Good competition
One of the causes of workplace stress is the fierce competition in the world of information technology. This competition,
on the one hand, accelerates the pace of change and, on the other hand, compels computer experts to willingly or unwillingly enter into competition with colleagues and other companies in order to maintain their competitive advantage in the labor market.
One of the negative consequences of this constant competition is the abuse of some employers by the energy and motivation of newcomers who are willing to lower their wages and lower expectations.
The rapidly expanding process of technology makes regular work experience challenging, and the knowledge they have work hard to obtain for years has been lost in use and their job status similar to that of newcomers.
4. The Challenge of “Numerous Technical Options”
Information technology and the computer industry (as its mother) is a very complex engineering field. But the instability and constant change of these complexities and the need for relative aristocracy over the latest techniques and techniques make it difficult for computer professionals to do so.
There are always many technical problems and ambiguities in the day-to-day work of experts due to a lack of mastery of the latest software and the latest hardware systems.
The interplay of these sophisticated and new systems creates ambiguous conditions that make a computer expert in constant challenge of choosing a solution from among the many options. Options whose technical implications are unclear and dumb. All of this causes more stress and stress.
5. Average life expectancy of each job
Dynamics and evolution in any field is good by itself. But if the pace of change and the production of knowledge in an industry exceeds the speed of digestion and acquisition, there is little chance of consolidating what is learned. On the other hand, there is very little competition left to make a mistake.
All of which makes the job market of the computer industry, especially the IT industry, suffer from constant instability.
As such, the length of time a person is employed in a given job and company (as compared to other engineering jobs) is shortened. Job instability has disadvantages.
Including the opportunity to create deeper human relationships among colleagues (which enhances productivity) in a short and scarce company.
