Right now, the computer science industry is creating jobs at three times the national average of other industries. Earning potential is high and the gender wage gap is low. However, if trends continue, researchers estimate that women will hold only 20% of computer science jobs in 2025.
You can change this.
We are looking for someone who loves computer science and believes that coding IS for girls. We are looking for a professional with experience in the industry or for someone who is just “wicked smart” with technology. We know you may be able to make more money in the field (the research shows that on average you may make up to $100,000 a year) but that your heart may not be fulfilled. Our students will help you fill that void. You will teach the basics or even BASIC, but also inspire our students to envision their own futures in computer science.
We admit, we are looking for a Unicorn. But, one thing we know at CSG is that Unicorns do exist.
