Tech is an ever-changing field responsible for many of the newest innovations we use every day—making it an exciting industry to work in. And even though people often assume that entering the tech industry as an entry-level candidate requires a STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) degree or strong computer coding skills, that’s not the case.
Although STEM degrees are highly valued for certain roles within tech, technology companies typically also have plenty of jobs that don’t require a computer science major or strong technical background. For example, finance, sales, marketing, and recruitment are just some of the departments at tech companies that hire people without STEM backgrounds. In short, there’s a range of entry-level roles in tech for people with all kinds of skill sets.
