Have you thought about a career in Computer Science?

According to USA Today...Matthew Wilson, Feb. 15, 2017, "Just last June, two computing organizations published an open letter announcing there were 500,000 open computer positions in every sector such as manufacturing or banking -- but only 50,000 computer science graduates a year. And according to Computer Science Zone, there will be 1 million more computing jobs than employees to fill them in the next 10 years."
