    My school isn’t Yale or anything but it is a little prestigious in the Midwest. It’s a well known engineering school in Missouri (Missouri University of Science and Technology). I had one co-op (basically a internship that takes a semester and a summer). I started out making 58k in the Midwest. I’m ancient though, this was in 2007. Starting salaries for SE’s are way better now.

    Computer Science Degree is different from IT

    IT you ain’t learning linear algebra or Discrete Math

    I have MIS degree, which is not as hard as CS degree ( i transferred out of CS to MIS) but still good enough to get you interviews for engineer positions
    I'm a sr. engineer now and constantly get contacted by Amazon, Google, FB, JPMorgan, etc recruiters
    It's relatively easy to get a job after your first job, the first job is the hardest because companies don't want to train new developers just to have them leave first chance they get for a 6 figure job

    You have to think about if you like the field first, try some courses on udemy as that will give you a small glimpse into the tech world. CS Degrees can get you:
    Software Engineer
    Web Developer
    Systems Analyst

    But you can't get any of those without significant experience.


    I have a CS degree, experience you are while in college is crucial, otherwise the degree is worthless. I live quite comfortably and will leave it at that, but I work as Linux/Windows Systems Engineer....

    My career path went like this:
    Level 1 Help Desk - Answering Phones, making tickets
    Level 2 Help Desk - Running Cables, setting up routers, printers
    Desktop Administration - Managing PC/Mac Labs
    Independent Contractor - Deploying Servers, switches, security cameras, alarm panels, Citrix Administration, VM Administration
    Systems Engineer - Linux/Windows Admin for a Government Agency (bash, powershell scripting) - Cloud Storage Management

    Don't get me wrong, money is great, but I enjoy my work, if you don't enjoy the work, you will burn out.

    Yes, you can, the thing with this thread is people went different paths to get to 6 figures. My path was different from a lot of the guys here. I am also just learning to code. Anyways, aim for Internships in these areas (aim for Machine Learning, Cloud Networking, Data Science, Cyber Security)...then once you get employed full time(gain experience focus on certs). After a year or two at your current job, bounce..to get a salary bump. That's the only way to get gigantic raises.
