One of the top questions I get from students is how they can get an entry level job or internship in tech despite not having a computer science degree. My answer? Data doesn’t lie and WayUp’s hiring stats conclusively show that 88% of students looking for startup and tech jobs on WayUp come from non-technical majors.
Millennials will make up 46% of the workforce by 2020 and yet this generation is plagued by broad misconceptions about loyalty (they’re not), how they value life outside work (didn’t we all in our 20s?) and their obsession with social media (it’s spawning an entire generation of new companies). Let’s debunk these misconceptions for employers, shall we?
Through my work at WayUp, I can see exactly what jobs students are applying for and the student characteristics that employers are looking for. I also see how individual schools perform against benchmarks from Top Ivy League colleges or other community colleges. And I’m so excited to share this, plus the latest student and employer trends, with you!
