ICT Related Jobs You Should Start Considering Right Away
Author: Greta Eshrefi
A reason why you should have already considered ICT is the simple fact that you need to start your relationship with your computer. People rely on artificial intelligence every day more and more, where computers perform a work that it normally requires human intelligence to do. AI (artificial intelligence) is improving to the point that in the near future, computers will perform our work for us, hence, meaning we would be controlled by them. To reduce the chances of that happening, we want to make sure that you are informed and you start your journey in any ICT related field right away.
As most of our day is revolved around technology, we might as well know how to use it right. Nowadays ICT cannot be separated from our daily needs. It has a great impact on our lives. Whether we are working or just resting at our homes we are always using technology. You get to learn, create, and apply programs that improve a human’s life in different aspects.
Some of the highest paid jobs in the world are those IT related. Being so, this factor became another reason why people got interested in the range of IT fields. Big Data Engineer is considered to be the first one on the list. Whereas, Mobile Applications Developer, Information Systems Security Manager, and Software Engineering are just some of the other most-important, highest-paid fields on the line.
Some of the most in-demand ICT jobs today are:
The skills required list of this particular job is very long, simply because it is one of the most specialized jobs which calls for a lot of education and experience.
The list starts with the advanced knowledge of machine-learning and also a number of programming languages with a specialization in a certain one, such as Python. According to “The Future Workplace” platform, Python is only supplied 1% by different universities in Kosovo. Whereas, machine-learning is not even taught in most of them. With this high demand for AI Architects, we are very far to becoming one!
Business Intelligence Analyst
Becoming a BI Analyst requires a lot of hard work and a mix of analytical, technical, and soft skills.
A Business Intelligence Analyst is a job role that combines hard skills with the soft ones like you would be dealing with programming and data modeling and also would have to worry about analytical thinking, problem-solving, and communication.
BI Analysts do not necessarily need a degree in computer science or engineering to succeed. A bachelor’s degree in simple economics, statistics, or management would work just fine. Our statistics in “The Future Workplace” platform show that we have an average of 340 students graduating in The Faculty of Economy every year.
With Cloud Architecture being a relatively very new discipline, cloud architects are considered to be the new IT specialists. Besides developing a company’s computing architecture a Cloud Architect’s main responsibility is to design, plan and assist with all cloud environments.
Some of the key skills of becoming a Cloud Architect based on an article written by Dror Helper are: the knowledge of operating systems such as Linux, Solaris, Ubuntu and Windows, the advanced understanding of networking like TCP/IP, IP addresses and HTTP, the advanced knowledge of machine-learning, web-based development and big data.
Based on the “The Future Workplace” platform, our graduate students in Kosovo are equipped with similar skills as the ones mentioned above, every year approximately 100 students have mastery over computer networking, around 114 become experts in web-based development and almost everyone knows his/her way around at least one operating system.
With all these new technologies being developed every day this is only a small step to stimulate or encourage you to start your journey in any ICT related field as soon as possible.
