Why Work in Technology?

My professor really made me think about the different aspects of working in technology and these are just some of the key takeaways that I have from the first day of lecture. I learned some things that I did not already know but I also gained some insight from a professional.

7 Insights

  1. Learn to deal with ambiguity – depending on where you work no one is going to tell you how to accomplish a goal
  2. It is extremely hard to define value – does the wage gap exist? Maybe, but two jobs are never truly 100% the same.
  3. Technology is the lifeblood of a company – in a more ever connected world technology will help drive innovation and jobs
  4. Jobs in technology are more secure than any other field, people willing to work in the industry have half of the average unemployment
  5. The salaries are good – you make a lot more than the median wage in the US
  6. This field will only keep on growing
  7. And of course… don’t drink and drive 🙂
