For recent graduates and those about to graduate which are the hot jobs in the digital tech space that they should focus on. In the fast-moving technology sector, the requirements for particular skill sets are driving demand for particular roles. Which job specialisms should graduates be focusing on for greater success?
Defining success by factors like job satisfaction, opportunity for advancement and earning potential graduates need to research thoroughly the companies at the cutting edge of technology that have great funding, great potential and future demand. As these professions move fast the number of vacancies will inevitably outnumber the talent available to fill them. This is great news for graduates because hiring companies are more likely to consider candidates even if their experience is limited.
The key job titles and vacancies seeing the highest growth in 2021 fall into several specialisms:
- Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality (AR/VR) developers and engineers are currently among the most difficult roles to fill. IT Automation using Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning is the automating and orchestrating of digital processes and workflows.
- Security, Cybersecurity and Information Security Analysts are in high demand as the business world does more business online with a corresponding increase in cyber threats to information systems.
- Data Scientists are more in demand as lager corporates move their marketing and customer data into the Big Data sphere and the complexities increase. Data Scientists are needed to convert that data and present it for informed decision making.
- Software Engineers have always been in high demand but as technology advances there is ongoing demand for those working on business systems, mobile apps and gaming for example.
If graduates are keen to get into these positions at entry level or as interns the hiring managers are going to want to see a relevant degree with at least a 2.1. However, some employers are dropping strict entry criteria because there is simply too much of a shortage of qualified and experienced talent. It’s a competitive market for these vacancies and this will invariably drive salaries higher along with increased demand for that talent. This is why more and more companies recruiting in the digital tech space are choosing tech hiring tools to help them find talent quickly at reduced costs.
