Why Careers with Code?

Because technology doesn’t stand still.

Neither do careers, or the skills that we need for the jobs of the future. Just as careers like ‘knocker uppers’ (yep it was a real job) were replaced by alarm clocks, ice cutters by refrigeration, and lamp lighters by electricity, so too are we seeing a transformation in the types of jobs we’ll need and want as a future society.

As few as eight years ago there were no Android or iOS developers – because there were no smartphones! Self-driving cars were just a dream. And 3-D printing of prosthetics wasn’t even imaginable. Yet today, all those these sectors are thriving and are likely to supply many of tomorrow’s jobs.

Last year, Google helped to publish the Careers with Code guide, which showed the wide variety of careers that computer science can lead to – everything from art and music to medicine and agriculture. Demand for skilled computer scientists is growing rapidly. In this year’s guide we’ve showcased more amazing and diverse Computer Science careers in fields such as sport, gaming, health, sustainability and more.

We need technically-capable grads with a passion to solve the really tough challenges facing the world. We hope this guide will inspire your students to take up the challenge and become the change makers, innovators, and creators of the future.

“Your publication Careers with Code is stunningly effective in stimulating interest in IT based careers. I personally read it through from cover to cover before sharing it with colleagues and students. Selfish of me no doubt! The layout, stories, photos and entire concept is excellent. As a tool with students it has been highly effective. Colleagues have seized on its potential to expedite appropriate learning.”

“We received the box of free mags and they are brilliant. I had a Year 12 student come in today, very lost and disengaged. He only knows that he likes computers and being creative. You should have seen his eyes light up when I gave him one of the magazines! It was the best.”
