Qualification, Acknowledgement, Graduated in Information Systems, IT professionals


This paper discusses qualification and acknowledgement of IT (Information Technology) profesisonals in conceptual terms originated on psychology and sociology of work, and empirical ones originated from three researches: one run among IT Brazilian professionals about acknowledgement; another among graduated in Information Systems, about acknowledgement and qualification; a case study in an IT organization. It is concluded that social professional acknowledgement are not substantial as perceived by that professionals (social status and wages counts on that perception), despite the acknowledgement of work done by them on organizations might be good. On the other hand, required qualifications are not obtained only through regular or technological undergraduate courses, but also through personal effort and technology certifications.
