Emmi’s Answer

Hi Mundo! This is a great question. I do not have a traditional technology background, and I also work in tech.

I think what is important to remember about technology as a broad field is that it is functionally about people, made by people, for people. So our standard technology should not outpace our societal ability to use it, since that would greatly limit the audience, and instead should evolve with us, developing to address issues in our lives.

This means that the social perspective is important. Technology evolves to fit a need, and those needs are often best expressed by people who are not as familiar with technology. There are many different points of view that are useful and necessary for the development of technology, since ultimately the consumers are people like you.

GURO BAKKENG’s Answer

I work in tech and yet I never studied tech. In my experience it comes down to customer focus, solution orientation and a willingness to learn and be curious.

Amy’s Answer

We all use technology to manage our lives. You don't have to be a developer to be a technologist. For example, I'm using CareerVillage, a technology platform, to answer your question.


Every industry uses software. To succeed you need to learn the operationl software for your chosen industry, whether it is education, finance, software development, or medical. But also develop the soft skills. Your personality and ability to influence others is what cannot be automated. As you develop your technology skills, also develop your ability to work with others, communicate your ideas, persuade and influence others, lead, and empathize with others so you know what they are trying to communicate. These are the gaps employers are eager to fill.
