Here is one of my public service blogs. This one is specifically for those of you with high school or college age kids.
You may or may not know that my husband was a computer programmer for many years. Now he is a manager of....computer programmers, and architects and things like that. According to my dear husband, there are not enough young people going into computer programming anymore. He is quite befuddled by this, since it is a career choice will most certainly land you a well-paying job. Despite the depressed economy, there is still a need for programmers. In his own words, "It isn't a terribly difficult job and the pay is great."
So, you might want to put a little bug in the ear of your college bound children that maybe, just maybe, they should consider a career in computer programming.
