Is computer science a realistic study to find a job in?

Is computer science a realistic study to find a job in? Topic: Computer algorithm and problem solving
June 20, 2019 / By Winfred
Question: I'm a senior in HS about to go to college. Both my brother and sister are unable to find a real job making a living off of from their degrees. I do not intend on going down that path with a useless degree and no job. So, would you say that computer science has a good job outlook? I'm sure there are several branches you can study as well, but I do not know which would be best either. Lastly, would you believe that since technology is always becoming increasingly advanced and useful, would a computer science degree be useful for technical jobs in let's say the entertainment industry? I'm just trying to figure out what I need to study here. Thanks ya'll.

There's been a critical shortage of people studying Computer Science or Computer Engineering for over 30 years and that shortage has only grown larger and larger. There aren't many industries where the starting salary is $60,000 - $100,000 for just a Bachelor's degree. However, don't go thinking it's easy. CS/CE requires a lot of mathematics, including abstract topics such as Logic, Proofs and Algorithms, not just Calculus. A successful CS/CE student will have a strong interest in math, science, technology, and enjoy solving problems. The computer field is quite large, and what you'll study in school will only introduce you to a few topics and area inside of it. You should actively seek part time jobs and internships within the computer field to further help you decide what exactly it is you want to do.

Hello i'm studying computer science and I ask myself the same question but the thing is that we can freelance and work solo or with a company depending what job you study like graphic design ( it is not worth it u can learn it alone) so it depends on you i'm going for computer programming

Computer science is as good a degree as any. Accounting & engineering are also good degrees (or so I hear).
