Is 2020 The Year for IT Opportunities?

Employment, Jobsearch, News / 09 January 2020

A variety of industries saw major growth in 2019, including transport and logistics, construction, and fintech (financial technology). This year, IT is slated for a slice of the pie, according to research from CV-Library.

This growth has been predicted from an increasing amount of job postings for IT roles, which means this year could be the perfect time to get into the industry or make any career moves. US market research firm IBISWorld seems to back this prediction up too. According to the US company, there’s every indication that some of the fastest-growing industries in the country this year will fall directly in the IT sector. App and search engine development are two examples, but it’s also important to remember that every organisation has an IT infrastructure, which means a plethora of potential opportunities from other growing sectors like construction, energy, and Telecomms.

Other factors influencing growth could be the fintech boom, which doesn’t look to be slowing down anytime soon. Additionally, many industries and businesses are gearing up for, and investing in, automation and AI solutions. The implementation, development, and support of these solutions alone is already creating a range of new opportunities. 

The icing on the cake for IT professionals, or anyone considering getting into the industry, is the fact that IT sector salaries rose by an average of 2.7% in 2019. This could very well continue to increase, given increased growth will create more demand for qualified candidates.
