What do you really think about IT?

Computer Weekly is conducting a major survey with IT recruitment specialist DP Connect to find out what it is like to work as an IT professional in 2003.

Do you enjoy your work? Are you proud to work in IT? Is morale high or low in your department? How do other business functions perceive your department? Do you think IT has at last shed its geeky image?

By providing answers to questions on these and other issues, you will enable us to build up a true picture of the state of IT in the 21st century.

The survey follows a similar piece of research carried out by Computer Weekly and DP Connect in 2001. The 2001 survey finally put to rest the idea that IT professionals are all geeks. It found that they rate communications skills as highly as technical know-how and hate fixing friends' computers, and that almost a quarter of them have always wanted to be popstars.

Since then, the economic downturn has worsened, the jobs and skills landscape has altered and expectations of IT's capacity to deliver change have shifted. This fresh research will allow us to track how attitudes, perceptions and morale have changed.

Take part in the survey and you could win an HP Jornada 565 worth £330. To take part, simply go to the DPConnect website and click on the Working in IT 2003 logo.

The closing date for entries is 27 June 2003.
