    Interested in Computers? There's More Than IT Out There!

    What do you picture when you think of a person who works with computers?

    It’s no secret that the ideas of a “computer geek” or “computer nerd” have worked their way into our stereotypes. Think characters such as Steve Urkel and the guys on the Big Bang Theory.  Or maybe Matthew Broderick in WarGames. I’m told he was the essence of “computer geek” back in the 80s.

    But times are slowly changing according to a recent article in The New York Times.

    Working with computers no longer means you have to be male, love video games and speak ‘Programming’ as a second language. And in today’s society, working in the technology field can be a great opportunity for people who are looking for a career that is expected to be around for a while.

    Keeping that in mind, there are a lot of different options for people who are interested in working with computers.

    In fact, the Bureau of Labor Statistics recently published its redesigned Occupational Outlook Handbook for 2012-2013. One of the updates they made was adding more profiles for computer-related occupations, including: computer network architect, web developer, network and computer systems administrators, and database administrators.

    The BLS also reports that employment for computer and math- related occupations is projected to grow by 22 percent from 2010-2020.
