Opportunities to further your career within the Technology industry

The large amount of job opportunities and the limited number of talent creates a skill shortage for most technological sectors, which is only difficult to bridge.

Technology experts are no longer only employed by technical organisations. With the increasing importance of technology in our everyday working lives, all industries need experts in this field and usually have their own in-house departments. Besides technical companies, the manufacturing, financial and public sector also offer multiple job opportunities.

Recent Changes

Since there have been some drastic changes in the Technology industry over the last couple of years, it is not surprising that the employment market has also been constantly changing. One of these changes concerns the number of specialisms in Technology. While a couple of years ago technical specialist areas were more or less straightforward, these days the amount of specialisms has become unaccountable. Some of the most popular areas include games development, technology consulting, IT services, web development, and telecommunications IT.

Future Prospects

The working conditions for technical professionals are expected to stay as attractive as they currently are. This means that they will continue to have great onsite facilities, work with the latest technologies and in some cases have flexible working policies. Due to the fact that constant innovation is expected within this industry, it is unlikely that technical jobs will become repetitive or boring after some time.

Salt’s advice for getting a job in the Technology industry

  • Employers’ Requirements

    If your job is business-focused, the employers will want to see that you are able to apply your technical knowledge for commercial processes. If you have a very specific technical job, e.g. software engineering or programming, it is crucial to show employers your knowledge of programming languages, of networks and your development skills. Despite the differences, there are some key competencies which are expected from all Technology professionals, including organisational skills, flexibility and teamwork.

  • CV Requirements

    Some core skills which every specialist working in Technology should have are problem-solving abilities as well as the knowledge to develop and maintain software applications. Furthermore, professionals should try to keep themselves updated about the latest technical techniques and principles, and should know how to communicate technical details to non-technical clients.

  • Interview Preparation

    Technology interviews are very straightforward. The main objective of the interview is to find out if your technical knowledge corresponds to the requirements needed for a particular job. Depending on the role, different test formats are used, usually numerical reasoning tests, which requires you to apply your technical knowledge to a real-life situation and the completion of tasks, such as coding. The best way to prepare for a technical interview is to refresh your knowledge about the fundamentals in a specific technical field and to inform yourself about the company.

  • Educational Requirements

    Most companies require their future employees to have a bachelor’s degree in IT, ideally in fields like computer science or information systems, combined with relevant work experience. Some employers expect their employees to also have a postgraduate degree in their specialised sector, e.g. in cybersecurity, mobile development or web infrastructure.

Top Tip

"There are many people that are technically skilled, but only a handful are good at communicating technical concepts to their customers and partners effectively. Master this and you will progress fast."
