For my term paper the field I chose was computers. I chose this field because I love computers and it s a field on the rise. When doing my research about computers, I tried to stay focused on a few different types of fields. I did this because I thought that doing every different type of field would not help me chose the right field for me. Computers is such a big field that it was almost no problem picking a couple of computer fields to talk about in my term paper.
When doing some research I found out some ways to prepare yourself for the field of computers. First you should have good study habits and take a lot of notes during class. It would help you if you had a laptop so you can do some of your work in your dormitory instead of using the computer lab on the school campus (Cobb, interview). If you know nothing about the field that you are doing, then you should narrow down your classes, and take a side class that will help you prepare for your field. Since there are so many mathematic problems dealing with computers you should be well rounded with math in high school (Cobb, interview). If you are not good with math, then you should try to do anything possible to try and improve your math capabilities.
There are many opportunities with the field of computers. A lot of jobs are offered to college students during their time in college. Some jobs offer the student so much money that they could live off of that if they were to leave college at that moment in time ( ex.35,000). Some job offers in different fields of computers are vast, but some are very hard make it in. You should pick a field that nobody really knows about make sure it has good pay.
I found out that having someone who majored or knows something in the field of computers that you are in, you will need them if you have to ask them a question about something in your field that you can't answer. There is a high demand for computer experts in certain fields, because a big or small corporation might need someone in that area to help them become successful (Cobb, interview). There is a lot of programming in computers. There are some field of computers that make the games that you play and the programs that you run on your computer Cobb, interview)..
The use of computers expanded between the 50's an 70's. Computer architecture is the design an analysis of a new computer system. Graphic design is the art of integrating text, typography, and illustrations in the production of books and magazines. The salaries in the field of computers varies depending on what field of computer field you are in and who are you working for (World Book Encyclopedia).
If you get Microsoft or Cisco certified you will make more companies want you and your salary will go up. Computers help people in their everyday life. Companies use computers to store data and records. You can't procrastinate in the field of computers, because their is always someone better than you, and more experienced with computers in your field. Getting your degree from an institute is just as good as getting one from a university.
Computers can communicate with other computers through a series of connections and associated hardware called a network. The advantage of a network is that data can be exchanged rapidly, and software and hardware resources, such as hard-disk space or printers, can be shared (Encarta, Computers). One type of network, a local area network (LAN), consists of several PCs or workstations connected to a special computer called the server. The server stores and manages programs and data (Encarta, Computers). A server often contains all of a networked group's data and enables LAN workstations to be set up without storage capabilities to reduce cost.
Wide area networks (WANs) are networks that span large...
