"High Tech: Risks and Rewards"
Excerpt from The Washington Post HIGH TECH CAREERS
By Erana Leiken
"... the high tech industry has been romanticized as part of the modern
American dream. It has come to represent instant wealth, status and power in
a world of rapid technological progress. Along with wealth, there are
bankruptcies, mergers, takeovers, intense competition, and overnight
obsolescence. These realities are all distinct possibilities for those who
sign on for the adventure....In high tech, change goes with the territory.
Like so many technology products, positions have a limited shelf life."
