As companies adapt to an increasingly digital landscape, job opportunities in information technology (IT) are popping up left and right. Here are several tech jobs that are currently in high demand.
Mobile app developer
This job involves creating new apps for phones and tablets or improving existing ones. In a slew of work sectors, such as finance, government, hospitality and food services, companies are using apps to better serve their clientele and streamline their operations. Most app developers have a background in software engineering or computer science.
As cyber attacks become more sophisticated, companies are increasingly moving from a reactive to a proactive security model and are relying on security analysts to ensure their cybersecurity. Most security analysts have a bachelor’s degree in computer science, programming or a related field.
This position involves using programming language to create online software according to client specifications. Given the high demand for this job, a university education isn’t always required. Completion of a coding boot camp, combined with sufficient experience, is sometimes adequate.
Help desk technician
This job requires providing technical support and troubleshooting services to users having issues with computer hardware or software. There are often entry-level positions available to candidates with an associate’s degree or certificate from a technical school.
These are just a few of the IT jobs that are currently flooding job markets.
