Hi Jeffrey,

Computer science is a great field to look into if you want to work on the computer, especially if you know how to code or want to learn coding languages. There are other fields such as data science/analytics, cyber security, systems engineering, software/web development, and project management (some require coding while others do not). Tech is a broad field where employees can work for governments or companies. There are also more creative job opportunities in tech such as video game design/testing, animation, graphic design, digital production, social media management, copywriting, and UX/UI design. If you are interested in any of these fields, I would recommend researching them and maybe taking a summer class or online course (ex. UX Design Professional Certificate offered by Google) to get an introduction into the tech world and learn applicable skills.

Many jobs in different industries also offer a hybrid or remote work model. If that is something you are interested in, I would recommend searching on job posting sites such as LinkedIn or Indeed and filtering for "hybrid" or "remote" to make sure you are able to work on your computer from wherever you'd like!

Hey Jeffrey! There are many jobs today that require the use of a computer in many different industries since computers have become the main source of information. Any sort of Analyst job will require the use of a computer as you will be reviewing large sets of data. I want to reiterate what the first poster said and go ahead and look for some jobs in areas that interest you, most of them won't state that a computer is required but will list the different skills you may need to perform that job.

It also depends on what you want to do on the computer, you can get a customer service facing job where you may need to communicate with people through chat or email. Or an analyst job will require you to pull data from different systems and glean information in order to tell a cohesive story. So it may be worth your time to understand what skills you have and then think about what you want to be doing on a computer!

John’s Answer

I know that when we say "computer" we often mean the technical side, networking, repair, and those types of things. But every computer network has functional users and end users who use computers to make something, access something, do something, or make a task easier.

I am an elearning designer, I spend all day every day working on a computer. I create self directed courses using software such as authoring, graphic design, photo editing, and animation. I also do a lot of writing using a couple of different word processor programs and desktop publishing program.

The training courses I create are stored in a learning management system and students take them using a browser, so I need to be familiar with these things too in order to ensure everything works and in case someone needs help.

I also get to meet a lot of people. Whatever training I am working on I always have to learn it first myself and this entails meeting with the experts. I really enjoy working with someone who has extensive knowledge of something I am trying to learn.

This is not the most exciting occupation to write about but I really like it and use of elearning and virtual learning has really increased in the last few years and there is no shortage of work.
