“Success usually comes to those who are too busy to be looking for it.” – Henry David Thoreau

The job market today is like a maze that needs a good plan and strategy to get through. So, in order to help you make the right calls regarding your career, we are bringing you a special edition of Edureka Career Watch. This week, along with bringing you a curation of news stories from across the globe, we will also focus on what we like to call the Edureka 2019 Tech Career Guide.

Before we dive into what this guide talks about, let’s first understand why we need it and what we hope to achieve using this curation of facts.

So, let’s start from the beginning. 

Edureka 2019 Tech Career Guide

Most of us know and accept that fact that there is a significant skill gap in the industry today. What this means is that there is a looming discrepancy between the kinds of professionals companies are looking for and the skills professionals currently possess. In essence, we can say that the IT industry is evolving at an accelerated pace and tech professionals are not really able to follow in tow. In fact, a previous skill report by Edureka emphasized on the fact that professionals today need to up-skill 15-20 times in their careers to stay relevant in today’s competitive IT industry. This fact is true regardless of a professional’s experience and the domain they are currently working in.

The Edureka Tech Career Guide hopes to help professionals realize what they aim to achieve in their careers, set a target on it, and follow proven learning paths to get there.

The Edureka Tech Career Guide hopes to answer three major questions in your quest to meet your career goals. These are:

  • Which technical skills are worth investing in and mastering in order to progress in your career?
  • What are the most in-demand job titles in the market now?
  • What are the milestones you need to hit in order to get to your desired position?

We hope to answer these questions by providing you facts, statistics, the market outlook, the exact career path to hot technology job roles, learning hours, and also relevant resources.

This Career Guide was the result of months of research by our experts. We spent hours interviewing subject matter experts, career counselors and used our in-house expertise to come up with a single document that can help anyone achieve their career goals. We also spoke to hundreds of IT professionals and asked them which job titles they aspire to land in the future and how they hoped to achieve them. 

Our guide covers 6 popular technology categories, namely, AI / ML and Data Science, Big Data, Cloud Computing, DevOps, Blockchain and Cybersecurity, which are arguably the most popular and in-demand careers today. So, if you are aspiring to build a lucrative career in any of these trending domains, download the Edureka 2019 Tech Career Guide today and start your journey.

Mastercard Joins the Cybersecurity Talent Initiative Alongside Microsoft

A fact that very few people know and understand is that cybersecurity is a domain that is growing at an exponential rate. This can be further emphasized by a survey that pointed towards 313,000 cybersecurity job openings in the US between September 2017 and August 2018. To fix this growing skill vs opportunity gap, a program called the Cybersecurity Talent Initiative was launched. The aim of this initiative is to educate and call upon leading companies, federal agencies, and higher education institutions to join hands and help grow the talent repository of cybersecurity professionals to protect the nation and support our digital economy. Mastercard recently joined this program alongside the previous founding partners, Microsoft and Workday.

Cybersecurity is one of the most promising domains in the IT industry right now and a career in this segment of the technology market will definitely be lucrative and have a bright future.

Mobile App Development Created 23,000 Jobs in Australia in 2 Years

A recent report by an Australian Economy body recently found that the app development market has created over 23,000 jobs since March 2017 in the continent. The report also stated that the iOS ecosystem is leading the charge here with 121,000 Australian jobs that is a 25 percent increase since 2017. In comparison, Android jobs are up by 22 percent to about 106,000. The app development domain is usually overlooked when it comes to IT sectors because most people equate it to programming.
