The early 80’s were a great time to be a kid with computer knowledge, as
many small businesses were getting computerized, which created a demand for
those skills. I got my first IT job at an accounting firm in 1981 at the
age of 16 by virtue of owning a home computer for two years and taking
COBOL and RPG programming classes in high school on a system 38. Never
looked back.
