Cracking the Code: The Rising Popularity of Computer Programming #infographic
The need for computer programmers is growing exponentially in the United States, outpacing growth in most other sectors. Currently, only 2.4% of college graduates are earning degrees in computer science. Unfortunately if this pace keeps up, we will only meet 30% of the demand in the next several years. This means these well-paying and in-demand jobs will be shipped overseas.
If you’re deciding what to do with your life, consider a career in computer programming or a related field. The demand for these jobs is only going to rise for the foreseeable future, and the current trends indicate there just won’t be enough people to fill all these positions. This amounts to about the best job security you can find in today’s job market.
