WHY CAREERS WITH CODE?
BECAUSE TECHNOLOGY DOESN’T STAND STILL.
Neither do careers, or the skills that we need for the jobs of the future. Just as careers like ‘knocker uppers’ (yep it was a real job) were replaced by alarm clocks, ice cutters by refrigeration, and lamp lighters by electricity, so too are we seeing a transformation in the types of jobs we’ll need and want as a future society.
As few as eight years ago there were no Android or iOS developers – because there were no smartphones! Self-driving cars were just a dream. And 3-D printing of prosthetics wasn’t even imaginable. Yet today, all those these sectors are thriving and likely to supply many of tomorrow’s jobs.
Last year, Google helped to publish the Careers with Code guide, which showed the wide variety of careers that computer science can lead to – everything from art and music to medicine and agriculture. Demand for skilled computer scientists is growing rapidly. In this year’s guide we’ve showcased more amazing and diverse Computer Science careers in fields such as sport, gaming, health, sustainability, and more.
We need technically-capable grads with a passion to solve the really tough challenges facing the world. We hope this guide will inspire your students to take up the challenge and become the change makers, innovators, and creators of the future.

What will work look like in the future?
If you are entering the workforce now you may have many jobs and even multiple careers over a lifetime! The future of work will involve people collaborating effectively with machines to do what neither can do alone. What jobs will be created in the future that don’t currently exist? How can we prepare for future jobs? What skills will be needed?
Year 13 is brought to you by the people who have spent too many years being told what to do, when to do it, and how it should be done.
When we were kids, we were asked “What do you want to do when you grow up?” Most of us said something along the lines of “Play for the Wallabies, marry Baby Spice and be a trillionaire”. But lives change, ambitions change, the Wallabies stopped winning and sh*t got real.
We’ve broken things down and sorted it all out so you can find anything you need to know about jobs, studying, gap years, travelling, apprenticeships, money and discounts. The best part is that there are absolutely no rules.
There’s no right or wrong way…whatever you choose, just make sure it’s worth your while. Take ship tonnes of photos, get out there, balls up, have fun, give everything and anything a go and learn from your mistakes.
Create a dick drawing app; we don’t even care, because you have got the rest of your life to make up for it.
Year 13 is the first year of the rest of your life. ENJOY IT!
