Great question Canming.

Computer Science is a vast field with a large amount of opportunities and areas to focus in from User Interface Design, Game Development, Artificial Intelligence, Data Science, and more than I can truly list.

You'll find that a majority of the roles you'll see on job boards are related to being software developer/software engineer, but a computer science degree is versatile and can be applied in nearly any industry in other roles that highlight a technical background such as a business analyst, project/product manager, technical support engineer, and IT manager.

Software is everywhere and every industry needs more developers than are currently out there!

Best of luck,

Kenneth

There are many ways to explore computer science as a high schooler! The internet has a ton of free resources, including Codecademy(https://www.codecademy.com/) and Harvard's CS50 course (https://pll.harvard.edu/course/cs50-introduction-computer-science?delta=0).

See if you can find a summer internship or program that will let you get some professional experience in CS through job boards like LinkedIn, Indeed, Monster, etc - some businesses may be open to having high school interns! Since you're a senior, I'd also highly recommend applying to the Google CSSI summer program (https://buildyourfuture.withgoogle.com/programs/computer-science-summer-institute/) which was designed for incoming freshman. You can also earn Google career certificates from www.grow.google which will teach you some great skills and also looks great on a resume.

Outside of external opportunities, I'd always recommend honing your skills and building a portfolio with personal projects. You can look online for a list of project ideas and this Github page (https://github.com/public-apis/public-apis) has a ton of public API's you could build a project around.

Eric’s Answer

There are a myriad of opportunities for computer scientists!
Coding/software development is one and likely the most common.
But there are also:
* Database Administration
* Network Administration
* Systems Administration
* many, many others!!!

Among the hottest areas now are Data Science, Cybersecurity, Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning and Block Chain (the technology behind BitCoin and other cryptocurrencies, NFTs, etc.)

The field is constantly evolving, and the opportunities are boundless!
