Lance’s Answer

I’m a computer science graduate and is been in the field for 15 years. As a software developer here’s what I usually do:

1. Get coffee
2. Check my queue for bugs that are reported
3. Investigate and analyze the root cause of a bug.
4. Go to project meetings, collaborate about new features
5. Research and develop new features
6. Test my code changes

Courtland’s Answer

I would recommend trying to talk to someone at a local college or university that teaches computer science. They will be able to tell you more about the life of a computer scientist. I did the same thing when determining whether I wanted to be an accountant. Good luck!

Luis’s Answer

Hi Mikayla,

I agree with Brad as Computer Scientists have different specialties out there but I can tell that a common denominator would be 'problem solving', we are constantly working with cross functional teams looking to solve a specific needs depending on the vertical of the business you are working with, it can be very satisfying knowing that what you do is making a difference for someone else meaning they get to support more people by leveraging new technologies or by automating a manual task that was time consuming or that may lead to human error (yes we do make mistakes).

Good luck out there :D

Brad’s Answer

The workday of someone with a computer science degree can vary greatly depending on their specialty. Generally though, the workday will revolve around analyzing problems and designing solutions. Because computer technology involves so many specialties, you will also find yourself working with other teams as you solve problems and create solutions.

If you like math and enjoy solving puzzles, you may enjoy working in the Information Technology field (IT).
