How to position yourself for a post-service career in technology
The job outlook for technology careers is booming, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, with a projected 11% growth rate between 2019 and 2029. That’s more than half a million jobs with a median income of $88,240, compared to all other occupations, which have a median income of just $39,810. Before you tell yourself you aren’t qualified for a technology career, know this — most technology jobs don’t require more than a bachelor’s degree, if that, and with less than five years of career field experience, you could potentially find yourself earning a six-figure salary with the right skills and certifications.
