Where to find an I.T. job now
The news has been grim to say the least about where to find jobs. So many people are being laid off and even as the economy begins to reopen there are still people being laid off and businesses across the country are bringing back skeleton crews to test the waters. Overall, technology jobs were not hit as hard, but there are still plenty of people who were laid off. Figuring out essential fields in this time can be difficult, so here are a few essential fields that can potentially be hiring, even during this difficult time.
Banking and Finance
Banks have been operational for the duration of the pandemic. While they have laid off a number of workers, people are staying home more than ever and are relying on online banking just as much. This means banks are looking for better ways to protect their customers' information, which in turn, leads to a need for people to create and manage better cybersecurity networks. This is a field that could stay open even after the pandemic because online banking could be the norm for many people.
Business Consulting and Professional Services
No businesses have lived through anything like what we are living in now. It should be no surprise that people need consultants to help them through this, but where does I.T. play into it? Professional services are another form of business that is seeing growth during this time. With laying off people, certain tasks in the office are not being completed to the best of their abilities, and professional services are taking on these tasks through outsourcing. Search for your local outsourcing tech companies to see if they need your help.
More and more people are ordering necessities online including groceries and home goods in addition to their regular online orders. This has not only increased the need for shipping companies to hire drivers, but they also need more I.T. support to manage their operations. Big corporations like FedEx and UPS are currently looking to hire for tech openings.
The world is changing for everyone, and the change back to “normal” may not be what we previously had. More people may rely on online services like banking and shopping more than ever out of convenience once the pandemic is behind us. Outsourcing could be a more popular choice for businesses because it can potentially cut costs while leaving tasks to experts. The change to a new normal will be much more clear when it is here, and only time will give us the clarity to see where the I.T. job industry is going.
