Most In Demand Tech Jobs In The World


It's an understatement to say we're in the Digital Age.

The first true programmable computer was called Colossus. It was made in 1944 to help decode military ciphers. Made out of thousands of vacuum tubes and filling a room, Colossus was operated by teams of people working in around the clock shifts. Today a smartwatch has more processing power than Colossus.

At the time of the moon landing, NASA used several IBM mainframes costing $3 million apiece. Today a single smartphone has more pure computing muscle than those mainframes.

Such incredible progress in a short 72 years. Hardware innovation has slowed from leaps and bounds to incremental improvements. However systems, data and application software development has been spurred to increasing sophistication and capability.

There are jobs but demand outstrips supply worldwide. Universities cannot generate enough computer science and information system graduates with businesses competing for top prospects.

Governments are waking up to the potential economic effects of the knowledge gap. In the United Kingdom, the curriculum was changed to expose children as young as five to basic computer programming. The Estonian government offers full scholarships to undergraduates pursuing technical degrees. In the USA President Obama has announced a plan to provide $4 billion in funding to increase computer science related instruction at elementary and high school levels.

Fortunately the Internet has made knowledge more accessible and widespread. The popularity of online courses has soared. YouTube is populated with instructional videos in a dizzying amount of topics. Education credentials are undergoing changes from diplomas to skill-specific professional certifications.

Computing careers are hotter than ever. If you don't have the skills now but have a strong interest and aptitude for technology, you owe it to youself to explore the industry. It's growing and expanding. More not less jobs will be created in the future.

Those with the right skills will have the most opportunities anywhere in the world. Why not join the digital workforce?
