Career

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, computer programmers can expect an 18% growth in jobs across computer-based occupations from 2012-2022, a somewhat faster increase than in other fields. This growth stems from increasing demand for new software and applications for continually developing devices and industry, like the virtualizing of healthcare records. 

While some companies have begun outsourcing their programming needs to firms in lower-wage countries, many others are actively employing computer programmers within the U.S. Programmers can improve their prospects by gaining fluency in a variety of programming languages rather than specializing in one, and by learning to use the latest virtual tools.
