Computer Systems Analyst

Computer Systems Analysts also known as architects or designers, integrate technology, so it is easily accessible to users. For example, a computer systems analyst would make it possible for employees to use their laptops or cell phones to access their company's main computer.

System analysts need to be effective programmers, and have the ability to identify the company's needs and set up systems that can be easily accessed. Systems analysts with liberal arts degrees and computer expertise usually make creative, effective analysts.

According to the Department of Labor, this is one of the fastest growing careers in the United States, and many analyst jobs will not be outsourced to foreign countries since private communication could be compromised.
