What do you mean, sociable?

If you're going down the route of computer science, one of the best jobs to get is that of a software engineer. Everybody thinks a software engineer is a 30/40 year old man with an uncontrollable beard in a corner in the darkness writing code, but in reality - every modern software company will encourage teamwork and team-building, and you will likely find that the atmosphere of big tech companies is much more sociable than most other industries...

Just take a look at the likes of the Google offices. Google almost revolutionised the employment of computer scientists and related staff - they hired expert chefs, massage therapists, excellent occupational therapists and a whole suite of seemingly unrelated staff - all in an effort to convert the stereotype of a 'boring compsci job' into a 'I want to go to work every single day' job.

If you are unsociable in your environment, you will find yourself dragging not only yourself down, but your team.

If that's what you mean by sociable - I hope this helps somewhat.

Take a look at some of these videos. Is this an environment in which you would be encouraged to be unsociable, or sociable?

Have a good day.
