We live in a time where you cannot get away from the fact that you need Technical/IT skills. No matter what industry you are in.
A Mckinsey report said that until 2030, 75 million to 375 million workers (3 to 14 percent of the global workforce) would need to switch occupational categories. These changes will be caused by increases in automation where robots are expected to destroy old jobs and create new ones.
More than ever, it is important for people to get better informed about future market trends and understand that a more specialized, skills-intensive, tech career would be of interest. Keeping in mind that this would likely open doors to more stable, better-paid jobs.
The tech industry is viewed as the most resilient.
So what IT skills are most in-demand?
- IT Security
- Big Data/Databases
- Cloud Computing
- Programming (Python, C#, Java)
- Web Design
The simple truth is that nothing in the world today does not require computers and software to be able to function
Make sure you are marketable and relevant.
