Software engineering is becoming more popular now. It may not be the easiest course around but here are reasons why you should take it and be a software engineer.
Explore your creative side.
Unlike what most people think, developing softwares require creativity for the job. Coming up with new functions and coming up with the best solutions to make a software work is very challenging and takes creativity to do them. To develop softwares can be complicated and really difficult so if you’re creative and has a thing for problem-solving, this may be the job for you!
Work with other talented engineers.
Another myth we need to debunk about software engineers is the idea that they only work in places where they’re alone and don’t require company. While some people liked to do their work on their own, it doesn’t necessarily mean that software engineers don’t get to work with other people.
Diverse jobs available
If you want to work on mobile devices or web applications, there’s always a job available for you. With so many technology-related business growing, you have many options to choose from. Coding is a skill that could lead you to different job experiences that will help you improve as an engineer. Software engineering, being one of the highest paid jobs nowadays can make you earn an average of $103K per year depending on your level of expertise and location you are working in.
If you’re not into jobs that require you to report to someone superior than you, being a software engineer lets you work for yourself. You could work as a freelance engineer or start your own company. It’s a risky move but if you know what you’re doing, this job would allow you to see growth in your career in just a few years.
While some companies let go of their employees easily (because of the terrible economy), being a software engineer may give your employers something to consider before giving you up. Having skills that are in demand is an advantage for you and even if your boss lets go of you, you could easily find a job in industries that continue to grow.
Believe it or not, being a software engineer is fun! It’s challenging so there will never be a dull moment for anyone who likes to solve problems and code programs that will eventually reach hundreds or thousands of people.
MONEY! Good money for you!
Many software engineers complain about the small pay they receive once they start in the company but don’t worry. Over time, your salary increases. You’ll earn more than other engineers in different fields. Senior level engineers even make $100,000 or more.
