 What Are The Hot Jobs In IT?

This topic has been on my mind for the whole month of March based on the LinkedIn brief of the hottest positions in my industry.

It has to be a role in Analytics and Business Intelligence.

Security is a serious contender, too.

What else?

Web development is still in demand.

According to Robert Half, the positions with the most potential salary growth are:

  • Big Data Engineers
  • Mobile App Developers

The one thing we know in IT is that you need to constantly keep current with trends.

Are there IT jobs you should be fleeing from? I don’t think so - there are legacy products in use keeping traditional IT skills busy - as long as you are enjoying what you are doing and keep your skill set relevant.

A career in IT is not industry specific, and companies are on the look out for IT specialists who combine deep IT skills with the ability to translate that into strategic, business development wisdom.

A favourite (and I think relevant) TS Eliot Quote

Where is the wisdom we have lost in knowledge? Where is the knowledge we have lost in information?
