Welcome to the Tech & Computer Science Community!
Members of this community use their quantitative, design, and communication skills to tackle complex, multi-faceted problems in a wide range of disciplines. Many careers in technology and computer science start from a foundation in STEM disciplines (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics), and fluency in one or more of these areas is an asset. However, many employers cite communication, collaboration, and lateral thinking skills as being as important as coding or data analysis. Other key skills in these fields include self-advocacy, basic knowledge of business principles, fluency in a foreign computing languages, quantitative reasoning, and communicating ideas concisely and clearly.
These careers can be faced-paced, ever-changing, and unpredictable. Examples of career pathways include (but are not limited to) analyst, designer, developer, coder, software/hardware engineer, specialist, and technician, often in companies that specialize in gaming, technology, mobile apps, business development, consulting robotics, hardware, data, and the web.
