High Tech and the Upward Mobility of Non-Technical People.
Kammire, Linda L.
The social and psychological effects of rapid technological advancement in the computer industry is the subject of this paper, which focuses on the concerns of people with non-technical backgrounds. It describes the career series, High Tech for Non-Technical People, created by the Georgia State University Career Development Center. The three workshops that form the series are outlined. They are: Overcoming Computer Anxiety or Learning to Love your Computer; The High Tech Industry: Where It Is and Who It's Hiring; and Jobs in High Tech for Non-Engineers and Other Smart People. Guidelines for promoting a successful program are presented. In addition, the appendices contain handouts from each workshop, covering such topics as selecting a home computer, choosing a training program, a profile of the hi tech industry in Georgia, networking, expanding career options, and a guide to non-technical occupations in the computer industry.
