I am thinking about gong back to school.

Recommended Posts

Well. It is hard to find a job and I have been unemployed for a little over 2 years now. Si I am thinking about going back to school, that way I can make a little bit of money off of school loans. LOL. I want to stay in the computer field since I have already went to school for Electronics and Computer Technology.

I can use some help on what to major in or what field to get into. So if you have any suggestions please let me know. I am wanting to go for something that is in high demand and a little ignorant to what that is.

Thanks.

I'm in Computer Engineering at the moment. I'm currently working (on a co-op term/internship) as a technical analyst/developer for an insurance company. No clue what I'm going to be doing when I graduate though. :P

Computer engineers, software engineers, and computer scientists seem to be in high demand, I guess. Myself and one of my colleagues (also on a co-op term/internship) are among the highest paid students there this summer. :thumbsup_anim: Lots of programming work out there, but yeah, it is kind of hard finding a job. Before being placed, I applied to about 50 jobs and only got 5 interviews out of those applications (10 jobs got canceled). To compare, in my first semester, I applied to 30 jobs, and got 10 interviews.

Thanks gamehead200, I have applied for over 100 jobs in the last 2 years and have not gotten a called back or email. When I was going to school (NIT now know as Everest Institute, I got a job as a support Tech after my 1st semester. I had to leave that job because I didn't have a license unfortunately. I know that I am going to take Spanish I can be bilingual which should further my chances. Again thanks for replying.

I love working with computers so that is why I want to stay in that field. Not sure on what field I want to be in yet. I already have 23000 in school loans. So I am going for financial aid since I haven't worked in a year.

Yeah, I sent in the Financial Aid Application yesterday. I should find out in 3 weeks if I can get it. I asked the school if I could start 2 weeks late and they said no? So I have to wait.
