What are some steps in college to prepare for a computer science career field?

I am a soon-to-be graduating high school student who will major in computer science. I know that I will be taking computer science courses, but what other things do I need to do, such as internships.

Hi Bryan,

Your challenge as you move through your degree program is going to answer this question - how do you want to use the skills you are learning? I have a broad skill - writing - that has many applications in the workplace. I was lucky enough to discover that I liked using that skill to help people learn. I started by writing job process manuals and finally landed on writing training in the forms of leader-led, web-based, and video-based training. It is complex, challenging, and rewarding work that I hope to do for the rest of my life. I have done this work in the fields of banking, pharmaceuticals, travel, and telecommunications. I hope to do it for a few more industries before my career is over.

You can do internships if you would like to get more experience, but it will depend on your course requirements if you need to do an internship or not. There is nothing specific you need to do, just be prepared to put the work in and challenge yourself to learn new things. Stay on top of your work and attend your classes everyday. Goodluck on your degree!
