For people like me, who has worked throughout his career in real estate development, there has not been a better time to go back to school. I was told a little over a year ago, and although I have found a new job outside of real estate, I have heard many times that the fastest growing career choices will be in health care and technology. For someone who has always been interested in technology, I have decided to go back to school for an online degree in software development.
I do not know which school to choose from, there are so many, but I know what I want to learn. But what type of degree will be the best? Should I get my degree in software development or this is too narrow of focus? What about the broader degree in either computer science, information systems or information security? For those in the software development industry, what it did to find work. Is there a lot of software development teaching computer science degree? I found a lot of information in various places, but I could use some help from people with real industry experience.
I will look at school soon. For now, I need to know what options are my career. I want to work for a large or small business, office, from home? I would like to possibly work in real estate again, and if so, the degree of in software help me? Will this be good? These are questions that I would like to answer before I start looking at different programs and schools.
I will look into more jobs, as well as schools and post what I learn. For those interested, monitor. For those who have any information to help, please note, they would be much appreciated.
