computer science jobWatch
Does anyone know what to work as if you are interested in computer science and want to also do it for a level and university. name any companies or jobs and their salary and how much hours they work
A lot of folks who do CS end up as software engineers because they feel it's the "natural progression" from a CS degree but in truth software engineering has very little to do with CS beyond any common fundamental theory. truth is CS doesn't prepare you to be a software engineer - you have to do that yourself through extracurricular projects, learning/tinkering and internships.
You really have to enjoy the whole process of software engineering (which coding is only a small tool for) and have the right kind of temperament for it to be a fruitful career choice.
Most graduate careers are open to people with most degrees and in the case where you need a degree in the area to legally practice there are often conversion/grad entry routes. there is of course the option to also go into research via a PhD.
I think you first need to think about a) which course you'll find the most interesting/can see yourself doing for 3+ years (an essay heavy course? a logic/maths based course? a science based course?) and b) what type of career you'd like to do (a technical one? a quant-y one? a business career? a finance career? a legal career? a health career?).
Sometimes a and b converge (law -> lawyer, medicine -> doctor, engineering -> engineer) but most of the time is very much independent from b (engineering -> quantitative job, history -> lawyer, computer science -> marketing analyst).
Salary wise.. most career paths are the same in terms of the average progression of your compensation at average companies. Maybe start in the 20 to early 30 thousand range, progressing to late 30s to early 60 thousand range and a peak around the 60-120 thousand range.
Some companies/careers are anything but average and as such have pay progression that is significantly higher than what most people will make.
