This week, ScienceCareers named “Three Can’t Miss Science Careers,” and Ph.D. computer scientist was on the list along with geoscientist, and physician scientist.
According to the article, “Despite frequently made claims in the national news media, and from university and industry officials, the job market for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics professionals as a whole is not booming.
There are, however, a few bright spots among the gloom, fields in which a degree virtually guarantees solid career prospects. ScienceCareers identified three such fields and explored recent hiring and salary trends.”
The article pointed to CRA’s Taulbee survey, which revealed an unemployment rate of 0.4% for recent computer science Ph.D.s.
