Why Should Young People Consider Careers in Computing and Information Technology?
What should you tell a young person about IT careers? How can they prepare now for a career in IT?
Created for school counselors by Counselors for Computing (C4C), a project of the NCWIT K-12 Alliance made possible by the Merck Company Foundation, Google, Palo Alto Networks, and Apple, this card gives adults talking points and additional resources for conversations with students, children, and/or other young people. The main message is that IT offers meaningful work, job security, and high salaries with a bachelor’s degree, and flexibility due to the variety of roles available.
