Programming Career

To say that programmers run the world might seem like an absurd claim, but there is much truth in the statement. Computer programmers design the software that keeps our financial markets operational, our traffic lights running, our fuel sources plentiful, and our lines of communication open. Without computer software, your cell phone, computer, lights, fans, kitchen appliances, and car simply wouldn't run. In addition, it would be next to impossible to buy many of the consumer products (including clothes, food, and entertainment) that we take for granted. If you enjoy outside the box thinking, problem solving, analytical analysis, and creative flexibility, perhaps it is worth going back to school in order to pursue a programming career.

What Types of Programming Careers Are There?
Most programming careers share some fairly common attributes. Working with a computer, you design lines of code that ultimately tell machines what to do and when to do it. But even in the programming world, there exists a tremendous amount of variation. Some programmers work almost exclusively in information technology, while others work and freelance for the entertainment industry, politics, education, health, law, international relations, and many other industries. Because computer technology is visible almost everywhere you go, job opportunities for computer programmers are also omnipresent.

What College Education Is Necessary for a Programming Career?
Although it's possible to secure a programming career with certificate training or an associates degree, securing a bachelors or higher is quickly becoming the standard for most positions. Not only is computer technology becoming more sophisticated, but the number of qualified programmers is also on the rise. Thus, if you want to stand out after graduation, make sure you have at least a four year college degree in computer science or programming. Otherwise, employers might pass you over for somebody who has taken the time to complete extensive training in this expansive area.
