What kind of degree or major would you need to work at a company like this?

It depends on the position.  What we look for in a web programmer is completely different from what we look for in a creative designer.

Thanks Jon, for your swift and timely response. Unfortunately I can't say the same for mine. I've been building computers since the beginning of my high school academic career as sort of a hobby. Despite my parents constant negativity towards it and their belief that it took away from my studies, I really did enjoy the experience of building my first AMD Athlon to AMD Phenom II and now Intel Ivybridge computers.

I'm a high school Senior from Sammamish, Washington: moved here in 2003 from North
Carolina and prior to that, California. I can say for a fact, I
certainly do not want to work at a company, particularly Boeing where
such events might occur and I might face the same decisions and outcomes
my family went through.  My parents want me to go and be a part of Boeing and become an aerospace engineer, but seeing as how it really changed my family, forcing us to move all over the country and placing me in certain family situations and arguments, I just don't see it as a viable and worthwhile area to study and job I'd like to do for the rest of my life. Hence why I really want to pursue a career related to the things I love to do: building computers and possibly the computer industry.

I try to ignore everyone's criticism and two cents about my hobby and my possible future, but it's still a tough decision to decide whether to continue in your father's footsteps or go off and do what you really want to do.

Did you really believe you would end up where you are today, following your passion, your dream? Would pursuing a degree in electrical engineering be the right choice to go into the computer industry with?

Michael, electrical engineering is an *excellent* choice for a career in computers.  We need more engineers in our industry who really understand what's going on at a fundamental level inside a PC.  It makes for better design, better quality control....that sort of knowledge has been crucial to the decision processes that has made Puget Systems successful.  Go get that degree!  Then submit your resume to me when you're done :)

Heh, I'm glad to hear such reassuring words :) I sure will do my best to learn all that I can and get that degree! For now, I'll be looking forward to see what will change in the next four years, not just in my life, but in the computer industry and Puget Systems.
