5 of the Fastest Growing Jobs in the IT Industry

Are you looking for an IT career, but unsure which field to choose? Looking for something with job security and growth potential?

Here are five of the fastest-growing IT jobs.

AI/Machine Learning Engineer

Artificial intelligence and machine learning are already among the fastest growing IT jobs, and they’ll only grow more as the demand for automation picks up. If you want to get into this area, you’ll need to study Python, Java, and even data processing.

Information Security Analyst

Data hacks are frequently in the news, as bad actors become ever more proficient at overcoming security features. Consequently, information security analysts who can adapt to emerging threats are in high demand. You’ll need a strong background in computer science or programming, and some colleges are now offering majors specifically in information security.

Software Developer

As the name suggests, software developers create computer programs or apps. They typically work hand in hand with programmers. Traditionally, software developers have held an undergraduate degree in software engineering or computer science. However, you may be able to gain the skills you need through an online boot camp or other non-traditional learning format.

Web Developer

Web developers create customized online environments for their clients. You’ll need a strong background in programming and operating systems, either through a traditional computer science degree or from unconventional learning platforms.

Cloud Architect

A cloud architect is in charge of designing and building cloud environments for clients. Cloud architects may also work on infrastructure, creating the systems needed for clients to do much of their cloud updating themselves. You’ll need to understand Java, Python, C++, data storage, and popular cloud platforms such as AWS.
