The question we’re answering today is which jobs are most in demand today? As mentioned in the first episode, WehnerEd focuses on (digital skills and careers) as technology continues to overtake each industry. Regardless of where your passions reside and which industry you work in, a digital skillset will create new opportunities for you and will likely boost your salary while increasing your work flexibility.
To stay relevant and attract new customers it’s a must for companies to manage a website, apps, digital marketing presence and increasing numbers are utilizing AI and smart algorithms to optimize products internal decision making. Any roles that help to build a company’s online presence, integrate technology into their products, or leverage data to optimize and grow profits are going to be the jobs with the most growth over the coming decade. Grocery stores use AI to send me personalized coupons and boost their sales. Sports teams are tracking player performance on the field to build optimal performance. Fashion and music industries are using code to analyze historical trends data to minimize risks and nearly guarantee hits with their audiences.
So then, it makes sense that the most in-demand jobs right now are the ones that help these companies complete their digital re-inventions. These roles include web developers, mobile app developers that create software for android and iOS devices, software engineers, digital marketers, Data Analysts, Data Scientists, and artificial intelligence. Now you know which jobs are most in demand today. So you might be thinking to yourself- great… Ross. I get that digital careers are growing faster than ever, but without any semblance of relevant experience nor a background in mathematics or engineering, how realistic is it really that I could get a role in one of these fields? The truth is that getting a job in a digital field isn't as far away as you may think.
Today's online education courses provide significant improvements over the traditional education that you're accustomed to… where you're sitting in a classroom with a large group and a single instructor. Affordable classes are available that can work around your schedule while also providing assignments that can train you in the skills needed for these highly saught after jobs in only a matter of months. College degrees are no longer absolute requirements for technical jobs and instead… the hiring process places more emphasis on a candidate’s experience with a given skill set more so than the name on their diploma. By mastering the skills you learn in online courses through hobbies and projects on your own…. or freelancing gigs you complete for your own customers… you can learn the jobs that seem so inaccessible to you today.
