Master Class: Tech Jobs: What Do Those People Really Do?


    Master Class Recap

    One of the great things about you is that you have already had a remarkable career. The question is, What career are you looking for next? Where will you feel like you are making a difference? Could the tech world offer you the job you want, or is it a giant detour? How can you know? Those are good questions.

    I was glad to find an expert I liked who understood about military service and the current hiring climate in tech. Dave Huff, Associate Dean and Program Director for Cloud and Network Engineering Programs for Western Governor’s University, has more than 25 years of field experience and a great way to help us find what jobs to explore.

    First, Huff grouped the jobs according to the kind of person you are—a creator, a detective, an organizer, a business analyst. Then he went into each of the most popular jobs in tech to describe what they do and what kind of person excels in each of the jobs, including:

    • Software Developer
    • Web Developer
    • User Experience (UX) Designer
    • Cyber Analyst
    • Information Security Analyst
    • Network and Systems Engineer
    • Computer Systems Analyst
    • Program Manager
    • Project manager
    • Product Manager
    • Scrum Master
    • Data Analyst
    • AI professional

    Finally, he featured jobs for those of us who are not STEM people but still have an interest in the industry that is dominating hiring today.

    The Tech Industry does offer career possibilities following your military career. Knowing which jobs best suit you gives you a huge head start.
