In an interview, Baldwin Wallace University's Jodi Tims, chair of ACM's Council on Women in Computing (ACM-W), discusses how an academic career in computer science offers exceptional rewards.
"The number-one [reward] is the students," she says. "Not only do they keep me young (or at least I want to believe they do), but watching them develop and succeed after graduation provides that intrinsic reward that comes with having the opportunity to make a small difference in someone's life."
Tims acknowledges the modern world sometimes devalues an academic career in computing, but she contends, "if an individual has a passion for helping others develop their potential, then an academic career is worth considering."
