dc.description.abstract This paper proposes an exploratory study to determine why some computer science or software engineering graduates abandon their careers in software to pursue radically different paths. While these people may be experiencing a generic mid-life crisis, is it possible that the tremendous technical focus of their work means they are ill-prepared for the senior roles on offer, roles that involve interpersonal as opposed to technical skills? en_US
