The growth rate and demand for jobs requiring up to date computer skills has continued to outpace the yearly supply of new college graduates. The shortage of talent has resulted in a job market that offers talented degreed professionals a choice among many jobs at a starting salary that exceeds most other professions. Since my arrival at Elon in 2001, my goal has been to help develop the computing skills of Elon students to enable them to either have their pick among these many high paying jobs or to attend graduate school to further their education. I am extremely pleased that with the exception of only two students, 100 percent of all Elon Computer Science graduates in 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016 graduates were employed in the computer industry in the job of their choice or attending graduate school for an advanced degree in Computer Science.
I welcome the chance to work with Elon students and the entire Elon community. My door is always open. Please stop by at any time and say hello. I have posted scheduled office hours on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. In addition, I am generally on campus Monday through Friday and can gladly meet at other times by setting up an appointment.
