Summary Two issues are addressed: Women are underrepresented in computing courses and in the computing workplace. The research for this was conducted as a series of interviews. The second issue was the shortage of people with appropriate skills and qualifications in computing, and, more specifically, the need for people with particular personality attributes. For this issue preferred Myers-Briggs Type Indicator and Strong Interest Inventory personality types were suggested for computer programmers, systems designers and systems analysts. Interviews revealed that computing careers are perceived by students to be technical and involve working in isolation, but for many computing people this is not the reality.
