Posted Friday, Dec 20, 2013 by Allen B. Ury
In the 21st century, computer information science is about as fundamental as manufacturing was in the 20th century or farming was in the 19th. Skilled computer professionals remain in high demand throughout the country. O*Net Online, the online employment resource sponsored by the U.S Department of Labor, shows a “bright outlook” for a wide range of computer specialties. These range from network and computer systems administrators to computer programmers, and computer and information systems managers.
If you live or work in Florida’s Broward County and would like to be part of the growing high-tech industry, start by earning your bachelor’s degree in computer information science at Everest University in Pompano Beach.

Class times will be flexible, so you can work your study schedule around any work or family obligations you may have. And in addition to your computer information studies, you’ll also get training in the “soft skills,” such as professional workplace etiquette, punctuality and taking direction, so you can better get and keep the job you want.*
