Insights into becoming a Programmer
Over this year a number of members expressed the desire to become a programmer. This desire was driven by a number of expressed reasons. Finding if you have “the right stuff” can be very costly in time, money and aggravation … after all it seems so simple. If you are thinking about programming as a career or just want insight into computers or programming you want to join us this Saturday at Hope Church, 9 AM sharp, in Room 224.
NOT everyone can be a programmer … I’ve seen 75%+ of a class drop out before mid-terms destroying their visions of quick high paying job because they did not “sanity check” those dreams. I’ve witnessed people who had to take a class then changed their major to be a programmer. The income as a programmer is good IF you have the aptitude, skills, and will. In 3 hours this Saturday, for free, you can get insight into what others spent months and hundreds of dollars to discover.
What I’ll discuss with you are:
This is a learning and discovery opportunity to gain insight and knowledge and NOT to make anyone look bad. There are many bright well educated people who were never a programmer or could write a program or even cared to. We each have unique skills, abilities and talents … perhaps this is something that you have yet to discover about yourself because of a lack of opportunity or appropriate setting. I did not discover my skills in and passion for this area until an optional opportunity presented itself to me … something like this session.
I believe programmers start in the $30 to $40,000 range and can rise quickly with demonstrated ability and passion. Very good and specialized programmers can go into the low $100,000 range for certain industries once they prove themselves.
I hope to see you there. And if people elect not to come for this, we can talk about job search challenges you are facing!
