One of the best ways to get a jump start on paying off those student loans is getting a good paying job after college. (Duh, you all know that.) One of the best ways to get a head start into that good paying job is to find fields or subfields where demand for spots outweighs available workers. (Duh, again.) If you can display knowledge in one of these fields right out of school, you can usually beat out the starting salaries for your classmates. (Duh… oh wait, that would be awesome.)
Good news, right now one of those fields is Flash according to the Wall Street Journal. Flash developers are in demand, especially in the subfield of Flash Gaming. Also of interest is Flash for mobile and AIR for Android.
So how do you get in on it?
For a broad overview, check out the Adobe Developer Center.
Then check out the Gaming Technology Center.
Also get yourself some Flash Builder for Students. (It’s Free.)
