So I've read that one of the best fields to get into right now is the IT field, but is that true?
I've read positions on both sides of the table but it's hard to get a real perspective on the truth here.
First how do you define the IT field?
Obviously getting into technology and robotics can be a great thing. I'm just curious of what I read about how in need people are in that field how much of it is actually true?

The difference between actually BEING good and THINKING you are good is sometimes difficult to measure and quantify and difficult to test for. I know some people don't like Microsoft out of principal, but their employment testing is very rigorous (Friend of mine wrote a book about it: Fred Moody: "I sing the body electronic; a year with Microsoft on the electronic frontier." Our kids were friends.) So are Facebook, Twitter, and Google. If you can pass their hiring gauntlet, you're pretty good.

Pick a Job where you need to physically be there
If your job can be done on a computer from anywhere you're screwed..
