About This Set

In 2015, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that the median annual wage for IT careers was over $80,000--more than double the overall median annual wage! Even more shocking is that many of the top jobs in tech require just a four-year bachelor's degree. This series gives readers an overview of these high-earning jobs, including the ins and outs of each position's responsibilities & the necessary education & certification requirements to get there. By linking the STEAM principles that students learn in school with real job potential, these titles illuminate the path forward to a high paying--& intellectually stimulating--career in IT.

Full-Text Reviews
School Library Journal (November 1, 2017)
Gr 7 Up-Some unique career titles in this set reflect a forward look at technology jobs that have immediate potential. User Interface and User Experience Engineer speaks to the fierce competition (especially in the personal device market) to satisfy customer demands, identify program flaws, and fix errors. Data Engineer focuses on the exponential growth of information and transactions, and how to store them. Some titles provide historical references (Charles Babbage, "Father of Computing," for one). Short worker profiles and day-in-the-life portions are welcome glimpses into the working conditions and preparation for the job. Vocabulary help is contextual, as in skeuomorphics (features not immediately noticeable in apps), hackathon (brainstorming via computer), and deconstructing engineering (taking things apart). STEAM skills are mentioned frequently in designing technology. -VERDICT A slam dunk for secondary career and STEAM collections. © Copyright 2017.
