Is a Web Development Course for You?

Friday, December 23, 2022

     As parents, one of the things that we look forward to when it comes to our son's education is the tertiary level. Aside from the career path that he will choose, we also consider other factors like the location of the school and the expenses that will incur. That's why choosing a course that is in demand and relevant five or ten years from now will always be at top of the list. Living in a modern world, surrounded by computers and gadgets, we need skilled individuals who are well-versed in the field of computers and technology. 

     If my memory serves me right, the in-demand course when I graduated from secondary school was B.S. Computer Science and twenty years later, computer-related courses are the most sought courses in college. Fast forward to today, Bachelor of Science in Information Technology with a specialization in Web Development provides students with the technical and design-related skills needed for a career in the web, software development, and computer science industries. Why take up BS in IT with a specialization in web development? Click continue to read more.

     According to University of the People, Web developers are creative, detail-oriented, and have high customer service and concentration skills. Web developers are tasked with creating and maintaining websites. To do this, web developers must know programming languages. In many cases, a web developer needs to know various programming languages to implement the desired features.

     Having said that, web development-related courses are needed in the healthcare, business, and education fields. When you think of these industries, they use computers in managing their business that's why they need to hire professionals who are skilled in graphic design, database administration or cybersecurity. Web developers are in demand because they are the front lines of the digital age. The websites we often visit, the social media sites we browse every day and upload our content, and the shopping sites where we buy essentials, these are all made possible by web developers who designed and built them.

     According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) web developers and digital interface designers earn an average annual salary of $82,370. The BLS projects 8% growth in this industry between 2019 and 2029, which is much faster than average. Keep in mind that salaries for careers in web development vary depending on a worker's location, experience, and education. So if you are planning to work in big companies here and abroad, there's a big opportunity waiting to earn more than the average salaries.

     As a graduate of this course, you'll land jobs like applications, game and multimedia development, SEO specialist, or web content manager to name a few. These are high-paying jobs, and I can attest to this because I have friends and relatives who are already in this field. I asked one of my cousins and he told me that he is enjoying his chosen career and at the same time fulfilling his dream life.

     If you think this career path is for you, then fret not because you can achieve this with the help of BingoPlus Foundation. This foundation by BingoPlus– the first online live streaming bingo in the Philippines, appreciative of the success it has been getting– has been giving back to society in the form of various corporate citizenship initiatives.
