In your school, tech covers a lot of ground. Look past your computer lab and you’ll find students who have some of the key qualities that lead to success in tech.

Creative

Thinkers

Creative thinking is the foundation of almost everything in tech. And it simply can’t be replicated by machines. Students involved in visual arts, theater, and music may not immediately see themselves as technologists, but they should.

Problem

Solvers

Technology solves problems and overcomes barriers. Students who are tenacious, determined, and have an unwavering will, may very well be the ones to leverage technology for some of our society’s most complex issues.

Eager

Learners

Because technology is ever-evolving, students who constantly take on new information, learn new skills, and find new ways to think about things, should be taking a serious look at a career in technology.

Routine

Breakers

Students who have a tendency to bore easily, dread routine, and enjoy socializing in groups might have the perfect temperament to succeed in a career where every day brings a new challenge.
