8. Not interesed in Computer Programming...

   I have alot of likes and dislike about what I want to do for my career. I like the idea of being an artist or a forensic scientst, but I dont like the idea of being stuck as a computer programmer.
       A computer programmer is responsible for creating the programs that are need for even a basic computer. they use this special language called "python" and "C++". they haev many responsibilities that include working on big and small projects. Or with other people that are also computer prgrammers. They have to have great techinal skills and intellegence about computers. ust be able to work in groups both large and small.
        To be a computer programmer there are certain education needs that you will need. Some schools offer a two-year associate’s degree or a certificate program. But many choose to pursue a four year bachelors degree. In some situations you may be required to have a graduate level degree in programming to be eligible for the position. Internships and other opportunities provided needed experience in the field. And attending seminars and going on with any education programs also help the computer programmer to keep up with the new advancements in technology.
         The average salary for a computer programmer is around $69,620, with a low end of $40,080 and high end of $111,450. If the computer programmer graduates with a bachelor's they can start out with a salary of $61,407.
         I believe that this career would not fit in with my personality and interests because I am not the kind of person to just sit around a compter all the time and it seems like a watse of time.


  1. I can certainly see why you wouldn't want to be a computer programmer, as a matter of fact, i don't even like computers, which isn't a good thing considering my close proximity to them on a daily basis.

  2. The Awkward moment where "1010011010" a.k.a the "mark of the beast" in binary in that picture. hahahahahaha. oh wow that's probably a bad thing.

    but anyways, having a technology related job as a steady career seems like too much of a headache to me. I dont blame you, not so much about the waste of time part but about the "this is just too boring" kinda thing.

  3. To play the "devil's advocate" here, computer programmers do work their own hours...even though that may be many long hours. I agree that that impersonal relationship for a career would not benefit me either. Good to know!
