Satya’s Answer

Any path is a good path as long as you are willing to take an extra step to be better in it. In every software engineers life comes a time when you think I am bored of this regular work. But, that is if you do not take challenges and learn new technologies. There is a concept in economics called law of diminishing marginal utility, which says if you do the same thing over and over you may no longer like it (Kind of..) . Similarly, if you do not explore then it gets boring.

Coming to Job market and money, it is always one of the higher earning jobs. There are multiple paths which one can choose in software career. Do your research on what might interest you and jump right in. You will be fine!

Jason’s Answer

There is high demand from companies who want to hire software engineers, so if you pursue this as a career and do a good job, you should have many opportunities for employment and growth. The demand is likely to continue, so it looks like a great career longer term as well!

My advice to students trying to choose an area of study is to think about what you are good at, but also where you get your energy from. Most people with successful careers spend a considerable amount of time and hard work chasing their goals. If you enjoy what you do, your chances of being successful (at anything you want to pursue) will be much higher.

Good luck!
