    Information Technology is a promising career area, at least according to a seminar at UTEP.
    Hey, wait a minute! What's wrong with being a geek and sitting at a computer all day? That's the goal for some of us! :)

    "Hanny said IBM is making a big push to get Hispanics involved in computer science."

    Is this so they can pay them $.30/hour?

    most people who want to do anything computer related (UK) require 3 A's at a level. that is no picnic.

    all the people who will be big in computer science will be in either california or india in the next 20 years, i think.....but i dont know:D

    You know, I wonder about companies making statements like that, and how much truth is really in your remark. Is it because they want a more diverse environment? Or is it just because white males are generally paid more, and they can save money on wages with hispanics and women? Or am I just so negative that I only see the conspiracies in things these days?

    I'm sure that's part of it, there's definitely a glass ceiling for women and minorities, so pushing more people into computer science would allow companies to hire more low level workers they can pay less, and then pay their higher-up WASP male workers more.

    I would like to believe that their intent is to hire Hispanics to help them penetrate the Hispanic technology sector with products and services. It IS the fastest growing demographic in the US.
