What are the hot jobs in IT?

From the panel of employers who attended the “Promote your Tech Talent” event on November 9th the top jobs that they see openings for in the IT realm include, Software Engineers, RF Engineers, Senior Developers, Individuals with knowledge of SiteCore, DevOps, Infrastructure and help desk positions.

All employers state that it is helpful to do your research and include information from your research in correspondence. In addition, it is helpful in the IT industry to have a mentor and an internship, maintain and update your social media profiles, and above all list any and all certifications that will make you stand out.

Speaking of Social Media… Finding a job in IT has evolved from Newspapers to Monster to LinkedIn and Twitter. Rolf Kramer, President of Kranect presented information on Social Media in the IT world and had staggering facts including:

  • 89% of all recruiters have hired someone off of LinkedIn
  • 65% of jobs are unpublished
  • An overwhelming number of recruiters use social media to screen applicants
  • Get to know 3-5 recruiters and develop a relationship with them

Finally, individuals should include keywords associated with the job and make sure that social platforms are updated (think Boolean Logic – data searching). Social Media is still the best way to network to increase your net-worth!
