According to the article, “Tech jobs: Minorities have degrees, but don 't get hired”, the author says, “4.5% of all new recipients of bachelor 's degrees in computer science or computer engineering from prestigious research universities were African American, and 6.5% were Hispanic, according to data from the Computing Research Association” (Elizabeth Weise and Jessica Guynn), so the data shows that last year only 4.5% of the African-American pursue a bachelor’s degree and therefore got a job in that field. Basically, pressure within the careers creates to hire different background people and these pressure sometimes can serve as an advantage or sometimes burden.

I always thought that I want to major in the computer field and by researching my likes and dislikes, I now have even stronger interest in my computer science and engineering career. I looked at the job percentage rate and this field is rising and rising. The occupational requirements are very tough for my major but, by working hard and gaining more knowledge from studies and through jobs will help me tackle all the requirements. I always wanted to code for major companies and I also would like to code a robot in future that has an artificial intelligence in it. By exploring different majors and career, I also wanted to major or a get a certificate of robotics engineers. The advantage of computer science and engineering major is, there are a lot jobs and now there would be increase in job even more because people started adopting technologies everywhere so, to fix or to make a convenient software they will need a computer engineer. As long as the computer and technologies demand stay high, there would be increase in jobs for computer engineers. There would be a high demand of robotics engineer in future because of rising robots in the market. With the help of the computer scientist, they robots now can understand feeling of humans and can also act and reply in a same way. So, the major that I picked is the best suitable for me, even though there would be high demand of robotics engineers in future. I am
