I’m graduating this week and I need to get a job. What skill can I learn in the next month or 3 months that will get me a high paying job? Would Solidity be best or data science? Or something else?

I’m a physics major, but I have no actual technical skills. I’m very good at math though.

That isn't how recessions work. You have no skills and no experience. You are about to be competing with a massive wave of qualified candidates that were recently laid off. Apply for everything. A paycheck is a paycheck.

>> No.19121675

Also, it’s retards with no actual skills getting released. I’m willing to learn some actual skills and I’m confident that my physics degree prepared me to be able to do so.

Boomers are slow at learning new skills, especially with computers. There’s a reason companies always young people to whore out their brains to optimize their shitty ad revenue algorithm.

Stay away from data science. Way overhyped.
Go for cloud solutions architect or cybersecurity. Both have certs that pay big money if you pass, which isn't even that hard. Both pay well and are growing in demand.
Another option is something to do with 5g or IoT, assuming these play out and are not also overhyped.

are you seriously asking if solidity would be good to learn for getting a job? fucking kek. anon....no. nobody is interesting in hiring devs with solidity experience. that's a 2017 meme. we use solidity cause we're crypto nerds and we like too, not because it's a marketable job skill.

>> No.19121854

>Stay away from data science
I agree, but I’m not looking to make a career in any of these positions. I just need a nice job for a year or two so I have a good flow of income, so I can build up enough money to take on some other projects I want to do.

I just frankly care about whatever tech position has the lowest barrier of entry for me to get into. Do you still a cloud training architect is the best path for that? I gotta pay for these certs to take the exam right?

I always hear this from alumni. I never think it’s going to be easy, but I don’t care about that, especially when I’m young. I want life to hit me with its worst and I want to show I can get back on my feet when that happens. Decrepit boomers get all tired and pissy because they were cringe alcoholics and druggies. There’s a reason they all look like ghouls once they hit 30. Nothing I hate more than a boomer trying to drag me down to their sorry state.

It is becoming increasingly uncommon for IT professionals to not have a degree in computer science and not understand software development. Software development isn't some dream job, it's what you make it like any other job.
There is plenty of opportunity in other fields like medical, business and other STEM fields (lots in engineering, especially petroleum/geographic/civil).
Expounding on my point earlier, the leader of cisco has basically said that Devops and "hybrid IT developers" are the future of programming.
