What Jobs can I do?
Sometimes we run out of ideas, and scrolling through long lists of jobs that call for software developers and programmers gets old. So if you need help thinking of and searching on options that are both in demand and not programming-specific, here are some job titles worth looking into. All these titles are designated as “bright outlook” jobs by the national Department of Labor, and all utilize skills that you could be getting in your iSchool program. Search these terms and combinations of words in the titles in your favorite job search engine (indeed.com for example) on company websites, or on LinkedIn to find opportunities in these areas, or come talk to me about building a strategy to get into one of these fields. Want to learn more? Search O*NET online (onetonline.org) for more information on what responsibilities, tasks, and knowledge these jobs typically include. Refresh your job search with new titles!
