TopicThings to Do to Creating Success From Failure
Today, our industry has more than 500,000 programmers. The Uncompromised Life engineering colleges have stepped up to meet the demands of the industry. In addition, companies now spend 4 to 6 months in 'retraining' newly graduated engineers for their specific systems and purposes.
The growth in the industry and the shortage of skills - except during periods of downturn - have meant accelerated career movements for professionals. People now often move from coding to design to managerial jobs in 5 to 7 years. Consequently, in some ways we remain an industry of 'trainees' - trainee programmers are promoted to trainee designers and analysts, and then promoted to trainee managers.
