Tech has a bit of a bad rap. When people hear about technology, exciting jobs aren’t what comes to mind. Many of us think of drones stuck behind a computer, by themselves and the lighting is always bad. But when it comes to what you can do with a digital education, this stereotype couldn’t be more wrong.
And anyone who works in tech knows this. They describe their work as: Collaborative! Creative! Empowering! And…wait for it…FUN!
So it’s time that YOU let go of these self-limiting beliefs and realized that not only can learning tech skills be a delight, it’s going to be great for your career. Seriously, we guarantee .
Learning technology skills doesn’t mean you will become a boring code monkey, sitting at your computer alone all day, hoping that eventually you will produce something. In fact, learning to code doesn’t mean that you will become a developer at all!
A quick search of the major job site The Muse shows tons of non-technical roles that ALSO require technical skills. Jobs like Sales Associate, Office Manager, Social Media Maven or Web Designers all ask for tech skills like HTML/CSS or familiarity with user experience design.
And let’s face it. The money isn’t bad either. Ladies, there is no pay gap! That is monumental. Seriously, look at the pay gap around the world.
The writing is on the wall. Beefing up your tech know-how can make you more money, give you greater job flexibility, and just turn you into a total bad-ass!
