Stoneridge software steers students toward careers in technology

Developer Bill Thompson shares advice regarding careers in technology.

Careers in technology is one of the largest growing fields in the United States. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, IT occupations are expected to grow between 20 to 30 percent, depending on position, by the year 2020.

In the spirit of sparking an interest in technology for today’s youth and tomorrow’s workforce, Stoneridge Software participated in the Health, Tech & Trades Career Expo in Fargo, ND. Representatives of Stoneridge Software guided area students in a simple example writing computer code. Each student wrote lines of code resulting in the formation of a geometric object, with the background and pen color of their choosing.

“I really enjoyed watching some of the students’ eyes light up when they got the coding project to complete successfully,” says Principal Developer Bill Thompson. “Lots of them didn’t think they could do it when they stopped by our booth.”

“It was a great experience to be there,” says Developer Sourabh Khosla. “I think businesses have started to recognize that they need to do the outreach to develop a future workforce. The whole reason for this event is just to show kids what technology is all about. A lot of these kids don’t get that exposure, and I think it was a success.”

The mission of the Health, Tech & Trades Career Expo is to expose students to occupational opportunities available in the health, technology and trade industries in the region, through hands-on experiences. Now in it’s 11th year, the HTT Career Expo included over 75 professions and 2,500 students from more than 20 different schools.
