Posted by tag44jobs on May 15, 2009

Interested in a computer programming career? That’s great because the computer programming job market has a wide variety of unique jobs. You should figure out what is it that you enjoy about programming. You could design and develop websites, software applications, and or databases. Wherever you are in life, whether you are currently in school or part of the workforce, you need to pick a career path that fits your specific goals. Don’t waste time & money by taking classes that are out of touch with your targeted goal. Make the decision based on what you would like to do after getting a programming education.

Set your objective and align it with your interests
Your choice of a programming education should be an important one, right? There are many factors to take into consideration. The first step should be to do your homework and figure out exactly what you want from a programming school. Don’t just leave it at; I need to go to college so I can make more money. A computer programming college degree may lead to a programming job, but you should align your overall goal with your long term interests. Personally I would rather get paid a little less to do a job that interests me than get paid more to do a job I hate, so do the job you love.

Know what skills you wish to acquire
You should read up and look into the programming skills you wish to learn, as well as which software development skills businesses are looking for upon graduating from school or a certification program. A school’s curriculum is not always straight forward. It’s important to know the path you are taking to reach your goal. Focus in on which programming languages are up to date and in use in the real business world. Would you like to design and develop websites, software applications or databases? You should figure out what you want to do with the programming languages you will learn, now not latter. Some skills when it comes to programming are not purely technical; you may want to look into advancing your communication skills, time management skills, research skills, and problem solving skills.

Do you want a college degree or certification for specific programming skills?
Your career needs a foundation to start building on. Some programming degrees can be achieved in two years, but most of them require more time. Take into consideration that any computer programming degree weather is in an associate’s degree or bachelor’s degree or even a doctorial degree may not teach you all that there is to learn about programming. However, I’m not going to tell you to pack up and go to college, college isn’t for everyone. Your career interests may align better with skills that you can acquire from a certification course. There are many different types of certifications for specific careers. Microsoft has many types of certification programs and so does IBM. Just to name a few more, there are certifications like Hewlett-Packard certified IT professional, Oracle certified professional java developer, Nortel networks certified network architect and Apple certified system administrator. In the real world of business, whether you get a college degree or certification, it still boils down to practical programming skills and hands on job experience. Even after years of school some additional training may be needed to get the job position you desire.
