The Future of IT Jobs

With the continuous rise of technological advancements, there is no doubt a growth of jobs in the IT industry. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), the computer science and IT industry is expected to grow by 13% between 2016 and 2026. Many factors have influenced this increase. For example, the advancement of automation has played a role: with the explosive growth of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML), IT occupations are expected to rapidly change and shape. Here are some IT jobs that will be around in the future:

Computer Network Architects: 

Computer network architects lay out the IT and communication infrastructures for a company by primarily designing and constructing data communication networks. These IT workers shape the networks that drive daily web use – working with both local area networks (LANs) and wide area networks (WANs). This position is expected to grow at a steady pace of 6% in the near future.

Software Developers:

Software developers create computer applications that allow users to carry out specific tasks and engineer underlying systems that run the devices or control networks. They are essentially the creative programmers and engineers for computer programs people use. This occupation is projected to grow over 25% in the next years – way over the average growth rate of other jobs.

Information Security Analysts:

Information security analysts are responsible for protecting the data of companies. They install software such as firewalls to protect computer networks in a variety of industries. As society goes digital and more and more companies rely on digital storage of data, information security analysts will become more important. The expected growth of this position is expected to skyrocket by over 30% in the next 10 years.

If history is any guide, we could also expect that 8 to 9 percent of 2030 labor demand will be in new types of occupations that have not existed before. If you’re committed to building a rewarding long-term career plan, these are the roles that will continue to grow in demand in the years to come. Can your career grow along with them?
