Answer You can write software. Or you can get a job at Initech going through thousands of lines of code changing 99 to 2000 in the dates. Answer … AAS in Computer Science Technology? The two-year MCSE? Quite a few people with that degree work in companies that sell, install and provide tech support for business computers--which means you get to drive to customer sites a lot. I think it beats sitting in a cubicle all day every day. The Initech guys had BSCS degrees.

Answer I know being a Science Technician only requires a Associate degree in Science.
The typical answer applies: It depends. However, generally, it will open more doors for you than having not having an associate's degree. Associate degrees more often seem to …be preparatory for a terminal degree. For example, an associates in education may be useful for most students only for accessing a bachelor degree in education in order to enter the teaching career path. If it is a "generalist" associate's degree (humanities, social sciences)it may likely give access to some entry level corporate jobs, for example, with insurance companies or state or federal governments. An associate's degree in the life sciences might get you a technician job for, example, in some hospital laboratories. Some technical careers seem to be "upgraded" to an associates rank. Examples may be legal secretary, court reporter, medical insurance coding, or aviation mechanic. And some professional careers may be "downgraded" to an associates degree. Actually, these can be "assistants-to-the professionals". Examples can be a sonographic technician and surveyor technician. There are also traditional associate degees which have terminal stature in their own right. An RN nurse readily comes to mind in this category. An "Associate of Arts" or an "Associate of Science" is a type of degree that is awarded in many different fields, from nursing to culinary to general education to drafting. It is typically a two-year degree, where a bachelor's degree is a four-year degree (or two years in addition to an associate's), and a master's is an additional two years beyond the bachelor's. What type of job market is available depends on the field. For example, there are a lot of nursing jobs available with an associate's degree in nursing, however there are not many jobs available to someone with an associate's degree in other fields. You will need to research the field to get a feel for the job market. More input from others: The best place for the answer to this question is the college offering the degree. The division office or academic department that offers the degree should have information on the kinds of jobs their graduates have obtained.You can have a great paying job with only an AA degree in general ed.

You are better off acting like a dumby to get a job than you are saying you have a degree.Associate's degrees can be the status quo for entry into police work, retail management, accounting/bookkeeping, business, paralegal work, or nursing. Almost all of these careers mean going back to school for a bachelors. The key point is that they give you a minimum background to start working- once you get a bachelor's and go job hunting for a REAL job and salary, you're going to want to have WORK EXPERIENCE to set you apart from the fresh bachelor's grads who do not have this experience.

Health information technologists organize and manage the health information of patients. Their work ensures accurate medical records, proper billing, and provides database…s to analyze and record health trends. They can get jobs in doctor's offices, clinics, hospitals, and in government agencies.
It depends on the field. Chemistry AS can lead to a decent lab job or even in industry. Recently new graduates in any field have needed excellent grades and work experience… to distinguish themselves, even those graduating in nursing, police/justice, and accounting have been struggling to find work at graduation. Nursing is no longer the "hot" growth sector that it was several years ago. Many end up returning to their previous jobs and waiting it out. The economy has stalled the dreams of many people trying to better themselves and contribute their talent to the world. On the bright side, now might be a good time to "sit it out" while furthering your education and skills, if you can afford to. That way, when the good times roll again, you'll have taken down those obstacles and be free to capitalize on greater opportunities. Anyone these days should be looking to get a bachelor's, but there's nothing wrong with getting a solid A.S. done first. In fact, having both might set you apart (i.e. A.S. in Chem + B.S. in Cell Biology or Microbiology, A.S. Nursing + B.S. Nursing etc.)
