    what is the best field to go into? both in terms of $$$$ and interest. I was just wondering what opinions you guys have. I am a 2nd year CS major and not sure what I want to do.

    If possible, dabble in them all. The more well versed you are, the more attractive you become to employers.

    this is the complete opposite of what I've found while looking and interviewing.. they want someone for a specific thing with lots of experience in that thing. no one cares anymore how smart you are or how adaptable because they don't want developers.. they want programmers.

    Dont go into a Computer Information Systems program and expect to make top dollar being hired as a programmer. You are making yourself marketable, but you aren't going to make as much as even the next guy who may have an AAS in programming, or no degree at all who may have experience.
