Brayden’s Answer

Hello,

There are a ton of jobs at Tesla and require a wide range of different skills. Ultimately its going to depend on what it is exactly that you want to do at Tesla that will determine that skills that you will need. Overall good work ethic, hardworking, and willingness to learn are skills that will be an advantage to you for wherever you decide to work. In your post you suggest that computer science is something that you are interested in doing and want to do something in that realm at Tesla. If computer science is something you want to do then learning coding language will be a great skill. Systems like C, C++, and python are basic programing languages that you will use on a daily basis to solve a wide range of problems. Most likely you will find yourself working on the driverless car program, pushing the system ever closer to autonomous driving. As those programs get larger and larger they are always looking for more inspires workers to help safely develop this system.

Work hard work and dedication I have no doubt you will one day find yourself working for Tesla.

Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering. Any of those or combination is a good way to go. Two things to keep in mind:

1) Big companies like Tesla have a lot of different jobs, not just engineers and computer programmers. They hire accountants, web designers administrative assistants, human resources professionals, graphic artists, dock workers, truck drivers, janitors... really it's not about what kind of skill you need to work FOR Tesla, that could be almost anything really. So...

2) What do you want to do? If the answer is "Work for Tesla", try to refine that idea. Do you just want to work for that company because the company is cool, or is there something in particular that you want to do? If you want to work with computers and write code, study computer science. If you want to design the working parts of a vehicle, study mechanical engineering.

Whatever it is, focus on the skill and education surrounding it. Don't focus on one company. You may get to Tesla and find that it's not what you expected, but that doesn't matter if you have a cool skill that will translate easily to other jobs. A different company may turn out to be exactly what you were expecting, you just never know.

So, study something useful and interesting and then figure out how to apply it. Chase down a job at Tesla if that's what you want, but you may have to go through other jobs to get there and you just never know what's going to appeal to you along the way and where you will end up. Be open to the opportunities that present themselves and don't limit yourself to one dream that may or may not be what you expect.

+1 to the previous answers that there's a lot of variety that a compony hires for.

One other tip to help you explore how to work for companies that motivate you: Check out their career page and see what they're hiring for; almost every company has one. Read the job descriptions and see what stands out to you as skills required for jobs you want.
