How awesome that you enjoy using computers and being creative. Those are two traits that can lead to endless possibilities when it comes to career options and opportunities. It may be a good idea to hone into what you enjoy most about both computers and creative work. Specifically related to careers, I'd encourage to explore some of these fields/jobs to learn more about ways you can use those two traits in your career: graphic design, web design, communications and/or marketing.

Joe’s Answer

Hi Dylan; this question really speaks to me because I find that I like to make things and be creative with computers, and I accomplish that with software engineering. Being a computer programmer allows me to create programs that can be of use to others, provide enjoyment, or even just something for myself.

I find my creative outlet in creating software, however this may not be for everyone. If this doesn't sound right for you, there are many artistic paths to be creative on a computer such as 2d or 3d art. Web and Mobile App design have become increasingly available to those who don't want to dive too deep into code as well.

Joe recommends the following next steps:

Try a site like Codecademy to see how you might like writing code, and if the idea of creating software, games, or mobile apps might excite you
Try sites like Wix and Squarespace that can let you try creating a website for free, and a site like w3schools that will show you what the back end code looks like

Bridget’s Answer

Hi Dylan, echoing what others are saying being interested in computers is awesome and there are tons of different careers to choose from.

If you like taking computers apart and are more interested in the physical side of computers, I would recommend looking more into hardware and firmware type of jobs.

It sounds like from your question you are more interested in the building things virtually, one great resource I would recommend for this is Khan Academy's course on javascript development. It is a nice introduction to what programming looks and feels like. The career opportunities are limitless when it comes to programming from working on medical devices to video games to websites. Some job titles you may want to look into are web developer, mobile developer, and video game developer
