Also, if you can help build a pc or upgrade a laptop hardware component, you'll be learning about the technology.
Some broad strokes of other skills that are really valuable in technology:
* Are you good at explaining how to solve a problem to people? Support or Document Writing
* Do you always run into bugs in software or find weird ways to break it? Software Testing aka Quality Assurance (QA)/Engineering(QE) or Information Security aka InfoSec
* Do you have a knack for simplifying things and making them easier for others? UX (User Experience)
* Are you great at understanding how software works and making it run? Support, Release Engineering, or Systems Operations/Systems Engineering
* Are you good at organizing things and keeping projects on track? Project Management/Scrum/Agile
* Are you good at talking to people and understanding what they are thinking, but then communicating that to others that don't understand? Product Management
Below is my suggestions :
1. Find out more on different careers in Technology. There are plenty of resources online
2. Speak to someone who are working in these careers if possible. Seek guidance from your mentor, school career counsellor, your parents , etc.
3. Shortlist 1-2 roles you would like to pursue.
4. Explore the entry criteria of relevant subjects in the college
Hope this helps! Good Luck!
- Solution Engineering
- UX Design
- Product Management
- Program Management
These roles still require an understanding of the technology that the company creates/sells but can be attractive for those not wanting to code!
