Momma, don’t let your babies grow up to be cowboys. Don’t let ‘em pick guitars and drive them old trucks. Make ‘em be software engineers and network systems analysts and such.

With apologies to Waylon Jennings, it’s true that a recent study by the US Education Department found that more than 95 percent of computer and information science students were employed full-time four years after graduation. Engineering graduates had similar success.

The findings are based on a survey of 17,110 students conducted in 2012, about four years after the students obtained their bachelor’s degrees.

And there’s this: Just 16 percent of the students had STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) degrees, but those who did were paid significantly better than their counterparts.

Speaking of tech jobs, Online Tech is currently looking for senior sales engineers and a data center facilities engineer. Check out our careers page for details.
