What's the difference between I.T. jobs and computer science jobs?

I have been trying to find a general breakdown of the entire industry of computers and information technology, hoping there was a chart or directory that kind of broke it all down into major sections (like programmers, database administrators, systems designers, information managers, etc.) But so far I can't find such a chart that would help me pick a career. Does anyone know where I can go to kind of get the big picture?
