According to an article from Yahoo! those tech skills are going to come in handy. “Here’s a hint for high school graduates or college students still majoring in indecision: Put down that guitar or book of poetry and pick up a laptop. Study computer science or engineering, and plan to move to a big city.”
On the one hand, I’m glad that there’s an industry where there are jobs available. On the other, I’m sorry to see the advice being “put down that guitar or book of poetry” in an era where being well-rounded is more important than ever.
Just my opinion.
