Collective Wisdom,

Are there gigs that are IT or IT related out of the 2210 series?

In all my years with the Army I can say that I have never seen one. I am not saying they don't exsist...I just haven't ever ran across one.
 
What's wrong with 2210's?

There are some IT-related jobs that are not classified as 2210, most notably the 0332, 0334 series(Computer Operator/Computer Specialist) and 1550 series (Computer Scientist). 
 
There are some more obscure ones, but in other series you have to read each job description carefully to see if it IS or ISN'T oneof the IT-related ones.  For example, I've seen some 1410/1412 (Librarian/Technical Information Specialist) positions that require IT knowledge (database design, web design, indexing, research), and some 0340 (Program Management)  positions in which IT knowledge played a large role.   I've also seen IT staff hired under the Education/Training category -- IT training requires a lot of staffing, but few agencies hire their own training staff anymore.  Mostly this is contracted out these days.
 
And as another poster asked, why not 2210?
 
Best of luck to you!

There are some electronics equipment technician (1670) that are pseudo IT. Mostly RF but they do have a group that does network switching.

You will be hard presseed to find 0334 - Computer Specialist jobs anymore. They all converted to 2210's. You will still find 0332 - Computer Operator, 0335 Computer Clerk and some Electronic Technician and Telecommunication Mechanics (0851 - I believe) that do IT related stuff but do not get the IT pay.

Lets not forget the 0391 Telecommunications Specialist. Very closeto a 2210. OPM is considering a merger.

Also, experienced 2210/0391 folks move into program and project management (0343) that require a broad IT background if remaining in the IT industry.

Also look for keywords: CSSAMO, SASMO, STAMIS, and Logistics Automation... they are normally heavy, if not all IT based, but usually in the Logistics Managment Series 0346

There are a bunch of Computer Scientist or Computer Engineer jobs that are Infosec related in my agency but then again its a research agency so a bit a-typical. You also must have an ABET accredited engineering degree to even merit a second glance. There are fresh college grads that were selected over me and my 10years experience because I majored in IT.

There are a lot of GS-0301 (miscellaneous administrative) and GS-0340 (program manager) positions that require a knowledge of the GS-2210 skill set, but not to the extent that the position would be classified in the GS-2210 series.  You will also find various GS-0100, GS-0200, GS-0300, GS-0800, GS-1100, GS-1300, GS-1500, GS-1800, and GS-2000 series positions where IT type knowledges are required.  You have to read the duties of the announcements to find these.  Good luck!
