Every year on the third Tuesday in September, which falls on September 21 this year, we observe National IT Professionals Day to honour the technical experts who ensure the smooth operation of our computer systems. These professionals include network engineers, system administrators, database administrators, ethical hackers, and many more. Since it takes a strong set of abilities to replace an I.T. professional’s shoes, today we give appreciation to those who come to repair our equipment when they stop functioning as they should. Without these unseen workers, we’d be back in front of an antiquated blackboard, doing things the hard way. Let’s aid IT students today by providing them with scholarship resources so they can further their education in the sector.

National IT Professionals Day History
In an effort to thank the computer experts that take care of the nuts and bolts so that the typical employee’s station remains connected to the business network and runs without a hitch, National IT Professionals Day was established in 2015.
If you’re old enough, you may recall the days when the term “attachment” exclusively referred to a physical piece of paper secured with a metal paper clip to a message that had been physically duplicated on a mimeograph machine. Since then, technology has almost grown at the speed of light, and someone has always needed to stay on top of new developments in order to handle any system malfunctions. These people are very necessary for effective corporate operations.
National IT Professionals Day Celebration
Taking the opportunity to express gratitude to the IT specialists who make our lives in the contemporary world simpler is the most significant aspect of this holiday. Giving them a sincere thank you as you pass them in the hallway is one simple way to achieve this. More involved actions include giving them doughnuts or even hosting a party just for them. Those who want to express their gratitude for all the IT specialists they don’t personally know can do so on social media by using the hashtag #NationalITProfessionalsDay.
