To the naked eye, reading code is just as confusing as forming words in alphabet soup. But not to you. You’ve been on computers since the age of 2. And most likely, you could do more on a computer by high school than most people can by adulthood.
The computer and technology industry is filled with geniuses. With our growing dependency on technology, job growth is off the charts. Over the next eight years, technology positions are increasing by 12%-37%, depending on the job. That’s higher than any other field!* Even better, job security is almost a guarantee since 90% of Americans own at least one computerized device. Regardless of where you want to live, jobs will be available.
Whether you can build a computer, fix it, or program it, just know you’ve made elite status. You are beyond those of us who cross our fingers and hope a restart will fix our problems. You know the ins and outs of the machines we can’t live without. And now you’re just a few classes away from its limitless possibilities.*Bureau of Labor Statistics, Occupational Outlook Handbook *Pew Internet and American Life project
