How to earn the IT job you have always wanted
Alongside rapid technological advancements in computing and technology, Information Technology has become one of the most popular and most important fields of study in today’s society. More and more students now choose to study IT and related degrees for the promising and exciting careers available.
As the industry continues to grow, evolve and transform quickly there is a need for ambitious IT professionals to remain relevant and qualified to advance their career and capitalise on the industry of the future.. To build up a sustainable and prosperous career pathway in IT, professionals must re-skill and re-train themselves to evolve with this dynamic industry.
This need to upskill is emphasized by the threat of automation of many jobs.
The development of automation enabled by technologies including robotics and artificial intelligence brings the promise of higher productivity (and with productivity, economic growth), increased efficiencies, safety, and convenience. But these technologies also raise difficult questions about the broader impact of automation on jobs, skills, wages, and the nature of work itself.
Many activities that workers carry out today have the potential to be automated. At the same time, there is also changes in the way individuals look for work and companies identify and recruit talent. These days, being a perfect recruit requires more than the expertise to implement the job well.
Having started their IT career successfully, most IT workers now have both the expertise and the experience to move up the ladder or maybe consider becoming their own boss. Both options would require new skills, for example people management or project management skills. After considering it carefully, they realize that this is an investment to upgrade their career, and that if they missed it, they would regret it.
That could be one of the reasons why a large number of IT professionals take further studies very seriously. They spend sufficient time to understand which skills they are lacking, which field of industry they want to grow into, and of course, which direction they are driving their career towards.
Knowing the answers to those answers (and maybe many more), they turn to the education providers to look for a suitable study option, and that is the start of their new career.
