Information technology jobs are projected to be among the fastest growing through 2024.
Hiring managers for IT jobs said skills in cybersecurity, cloud, data analytics, Internet of Things, and converged infrastructure are the highest-value, according to a recent report from IT and networking company Cisco and market intelligence firm IDC.
Many of these roles have skill shortages, the report said. 

 

You probably already know IT jobs are well-paid and in-demand. IT jobs are among the fastest-growing for the next decade, according to a 2015 Bureau of Labor Statistics report. A recent report from IT and networking company Cisco and market intelligence firm IDC highlighted just which positions are growing the fastest.

The report shows the IT jobs that are most highly demanded and most important to an organization’s success, through a global survey of hiring managers in information technology and analysis of nearly two million IT job postings. 

Recruiters said skills in cybersecurity, cloud, data analytics, Internet of Things, and converged infrastructure are the highest-value. They also said there is a skill shortage for many of these roles. 

“Digital transformation is driving the industry and creating demand for new roles,” said Cushing Anderson, IDC program vice president, in a press release. “The economic opportunities are huge for individuals looking to further their IT careers — or begin them.”

More than five million jobs in information technology are expected to be added globally by 2027, according to the report. Here are 13 positions with the best growth potential. 

Each metric is rated on a five-point scale: very low, low, medium, high, and very high.
