1 A CAREER IN TECHNOLOGY Created By: Isaiah Manzanales

2 A SOFTWARE DESIGNER  A Software Designer is one of the best jobs for technology in the world. Software developers have their fingerprints all over our lives.  That alarm clock app that woke you from a dead sleep this morning was designed by at least one software developer.  Designing programs is the job's most identifiable component, but these tech-savvy professionals have many other responsibilities, including testing and debugging the software and maintaining and improving it once it's in operation.

3 THE REQUIREMENTS  Depending on the employer, software engineer education degree requirements range from an associate’s degree to a master’s degree. An associate’s degree might be sufficient for some entry-level positions, but a bachelor’s degree is required for most software engineering jobs, while more complex jobs might require a master’s degree.  Aspiring software designers usually major in computer science, computer information systems, software engineering or mathematics. Some students take programming and software engineering classes to supplement a degree in another field, such as accounting, business or finance.

4 THERE SALARY  The Labor Department reports that software developers made a median salary of $90,060 in 2012. The highest-paid 10 percent in the profession earned $138,880 in 2012, while the lowest-paid earned $55,190.  75th Percentile $113,280  Median $90,060  25th Percentile $70,850

5 EXTRA INFO.  While jobs are still scarce in many industries, software developers are in "absolute explosive demand.”  "We're seeing a gap between the number of software engineers we need and the number the education system is generating... this is a terrific area to invest oneself."  Software developers are involved in all aspects of software creation, from writing code to debugging programs to overseeing the launch of new software.

6 CONTINUED…  Software developers sometimes involves long hours and tight deadlines, so it can be stressful.  Software developers work in comfortable settings, however, and telecommuting is becoming increasingly common.  The salaries of software developers vary depending on education, experience, and skill level.
