Job Opportunities for Computer Science Students

Need Help starting your job search?

The APSU Office of Career Services provides excellent support services for job hunting. We strongly suggest all Computer Science Majors to make use of their free services, starting 2 years before your planned graduation date, to:

  1. Prepare resume, cover letter, and reference lists; Prepare the first draft of your resume; Use the resources and resume templates at the Office of Career Services: More information on Resumes.
  2. Choose one of the two resume templates below as your starting template:
    https://www.apsu.edu/csci/doc/APSU_CSIT_Resume_Internship_2.docxThis template uses top ruler to format column width.
    https://www.apsu.edu/csci/doc/APSU_CSIT_Resume_Internship_1.docThis template uses tables. Please highlight text, and show table border to format.

  3. Have the resume, cover letter and reference list professionally critiqued. E-mail your resume to them at careerservices@apsu.edu and you will receive a written critique within 72 hours. This is a free APSU service offered before and after your graduation.
  4. Start applying for jobs 6 months before your graduation date. 50 job applications is a good number to aim for.
  5. Customize your resume for each position.

At a time when unemployment is high and hiring is lagging in many disciplines/majors/fields, the Bureau of Labor Statistics is predicting that jobs for computer scientists will increase by 11% between 2014 and 2024, 4% above the average growth rate. (source). Unfortunately, professions in the Computer Science major are rarely available locally. The job opportunities are spread out across the country. Therefore, all computer science majors should keep an open mind and be ready to relocate. In order to fully maximize your range of possible careers, you should start searching for jobs early, preferably online. The best time to begin this is one year before graduation - the summer holidays are a great time to begin looking.
