Employers prefer applicants who have at least a bachelor's degree. They generally prefer candidates with a computer-related degree. However, applicants with other majors and computer experience are also hired. Many employers promote programmers or other computer professionals within their company.
For more complex jobs, employers prefer to hire applicants who have a graduate degree. Sometimes a master's degree in computer science or engineering is enough. A Ph.D. is required for jobs in research laboratories or universities. It is difficult to qualify for this type of position with only a bachelor's degree. However, requirements for computer jobs vary because employers' preferences depend upon the work to be done.
Many employers prefer candidates who are knowledgeable about e-commerce and Internet security. This is because many businesses buy and sell products online.
Beginning computer systems administrators start with small projects and are supervised by a senior-level administrator. As they gain experience, they may be put in charge of increasingly larger and more complex systems. Those who have good people skills may advance to supervisory positions.
