Computer science grads are playing it safe instead of trying to help build the next big thing
Y-Combinator's Paul Graham knew that working for a Silicon Valley giant was every programmer's dream back in the day but he was surprised — and somewhat disappointed — to find that little has changed. As the technology sector grows, the demand for computer science skills is increasing at a faster pace than the number of graduates being churned out by top tier institutes. For instance, Massachusetts' technology and computer science fields have 17 job openings for each recent in-state graduate with a computing and mathematics degree, according to the 2016 State of the Technology Economy report.
