Top 10 instant technology careers for 2016-2018

The state of IT qualifications is constantly evolving – and I am always very interested in how we can help training partners match their offers to what the market requires.  Training and certification covers a wider career field in which multiple segments overlap. Data Science and mobile app development is arguably the latest additions to the family of qualifications, however we predict at least another 5 key skills that will become critical over the next 12 months.   The question asked by most job-seekers and business professionals is this: “What will be the top 10 best paid IT jobs”, however we venture beyond that with specific career pathways that will ensure a multi-skilled approach – which is not to say that specialization will lack, but rather that candidates will be more valuable to the employer – particularly for smaller companies where job functions are more varied.

What is great is the opportunity to change into a new career in a matter of weeks with no experience, or to take an intensive learning “deep dive” into additional skills if you’re already working in IT, seeking to evolve to the next career level. It should be noted, that our current best offer would be the  CareerGold package: Cisco & Comptia IT career training courses here on Globalcademy.  However you may also seek individual courses, rather than a complete bundle, in which case you can opt for the following:

The above courses are taught by Mike Meyers and Lazaro (Laz) Diaz.
