These tech skills can help you land a high-paying job in 2022

The overall tech landscape in India is changing at unprecedented speed. The pandemic has taught businesses in India about the importance of digitization, automation, and analytics and how they can help optimize costs, dramatically improve organizational efficiency, and improve ROI. In addition to the pandemic, the growing momentum of programs like Digital India and Startup India and a sprawling startup ecosystem is also undergoing tectonic shifts.

As a result, many old technologies are now becoming redundant, while the demand for new skill sets and practice areas is increasing. Mentioned below are some of the tech jobs that are in high demand and can help you land a high-paying job:

CYBER SECURITY

Due to the unprecedented increase in digitization and use of data, the cases of cyber threats are also increasing rapidly. Increasingly, hackers and cybercriminals are trying to access critical data and information. This has necessitated the need for competent cyber security professionals such as network security engineers, cyber security analysts, cyber security architects, information security managers, etc.

Cyber ​​security remains a niche domain and talent is limited in the field. However, its demand will continue to increase exponentially in the coming times and there will be good offers for competent professionals.

BLOCK CHAIN

NFTs, Cryptocurrencies and the Metaverse are seeing a strong increase, which will also translate to the demand for blockchain professionals. In 2019, the total investment in blockchain technologies amounted to 2.7 billion dollars. By 2023, total investments are expected to exceed $16 billion, further underlining the growing importance of blockchain technologies.

As blockchain becomes more widespread, the demand for blockchain developers with capabilities to develop blockchain-specific systems will also increase. Additionally, there will be a greater demand for blockchain web developers who can design and implement user interfaces and applications across platforms.

ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE

Along with global growth, the demand for AI (and other data scientist roles) will continue to rise in India. According to global recruitment agency Michael Page, data science and artificial intelligence is one of the fastest growing job categories in the world, with 11.5 million professionals in the domain required by 2026. A considerable part of the demand will come from emerging economies such as India.

Most of the organizations in India are implementing digitization on a large scale. This is resulting in increased demand for data scientists and analysts who can translate big data into actionable insights. This is a very lucrative segment and computing/mathematical/statistical professionals should try to improve their skills in the area.

CLOUD PROFESSIONALS

As organizations are moving critical data to the cloud, the demand for professionals with knowledge of cloud computing, cloud migration, Azure technologies, cloud security, etc., will continue to increase at an exponential rate. According to a leading job portal in India, in 2021 around 10% of hiring in the IT sector was related to the cloud. A similar uptrend will continue in 2022 as well.

Nasscom has estimated that by 2026, nearly 2 million jobs in India will be in the cloud domain. Not only is the volume high, but it’s a well-paying job.

IoT PROFESSIONALS

Increasingly, various industries in India such as energy, logistics, construction, chemicals, healthcare, etc. are now using IoT based systems to monitor and operate their networks of machinery and equipment. Consequently, the demand for professionals with IoT expertise is also increasing rapidly in the country.

IoT professionals get high-paying jobs as network architects, hardware specialists, security professionals, etc. It is still a nascent industry, which is further driving the demand for top talent.
