  • Many also worked for software publishers, manufacturers of computers and related electronic equipment, financial institutions, and insurance providers.
  • According to the National Association of Colleges and Employers, starting salary offers for grads with a bachelors degree in computer science was $61,407 in July 2009
  • Why: Advances in programming languages and tools, the growing ability of users to write and implement their own programs, and the offshore outsourcing of programming jobs will contribute to this decline. Because they can transmit their programs digitally, computer programmers can perform their job function from anywhere in the world, allowing companies to employ workers in countries that have lower prevailing wages
  • Industry: computer systems design and related services,telecommunications companies, financial firms and insurance providers, business management organizations, schools, and government agencies,self-employed
  • Basically any company or place of business needs computer support. Not all are in house some may be contracted out
  • Many organizations offer intermediate and advanced certification programs that pertain to the most recent technological advancements
