I need a good job, one that involves computers. What career should I go to school for, I need a steady job!?
Im about to enroll into Los Angeles Trade Tech College. Im going to be taking a career planing class so that it will help me narrow my choices down. But I know I want my career to have something to do with computers. Maybe a technician, or a video game maker, or a field in graphic arts? I just dont know. What jobs are out there, that will always be hiring, that will always be running? I need a job, one that I can retire from. Im 25 years old, and Ive reached a point in my life where I need a better job and I know the only way toget that is to go to school. But I dont want to go to school and invest my time in something that when Im done wont get me a job, or would be hard to find one. Know what I mean? Well, there it is, I hope you get my question. To all who answer, I seriously thank you for your time and any words of advice your able to give me.
There are a limited number of jobs specifically in games and video but LA is one of the centers for that. There are many more jobs in user interface, flash and general website design. I would take a course with some hands on development using web technologies. It might be titled computer science but you will have to look at the courses offered. You want some programming background if you are good at problem solving and fairly analytical. Alternatively you could do a graphic design course and add computing skills to that if you want to be more flash and animation based. I think there will be a lot of jobs in that area needed for many years and it is very creative. Only go that way if you are fairly innovative and artistic.
