Top 3 Tech Jobs of the Future
Earning an Associate Degree at Laurus College will help you prepare for new jobs emerging in high-tech fields like Web Development, Video Game Design and Computer Networking.
As the population ages our needs for how and why we use technology changes. Thanks to the rise of a new generation—the Millenials (people born from 1980-1995)—more people than ever before can understand and use technology effectively. For professionals in technology-related fields that means more opportunities are available that rely on creativity and strong communications skills. Check out these top 3 careers of the future:
App Developer: The saying, “There’s an app for that,” is only partially true. While it seems we have an app for everything from picking the healthiest items on a menu to measuring our own sleep patterns, there are still thousands of apps waiting to be developed. If you have strong problem solving skills and a knack for figuring out trends and predicting needs, then you might be interested in a career as an app developer.
Video Game Designer: The video game market is going strong and shows no signs of slowing down. New gamers emerge daily and one of the fastest growing demographics is among adult women who now comprise 36% of all gamers. Creating a competitive gaming experience is a must, but more important is the ability to compose a compelling story. If you like creating stories that hook readers into the narrative, then working as a video game designer could be your calling.
Network Telecommunications Specialist: Students at Laurus College have first-hand experience for what it means to take part in a virtual learning environment. As the online classroom continues to grow in popularity and with more and more businesses moving to video conferencing and wireless networking, the demand grows for skilled individuals who can design, install and troubleshoot web-based systems. One of the best ways to get your foot in the door after graduation is to start out working at a help desk and then work your way up.
Technology continually changes to meet the needs of individuals and businesses. With the right skills, you can confidently enter the job market and find the right career.
