5 Top In and Out of Demand Tech Skills For 2022 - Sophia Belnap - Blog

5 Top In and Out of Demand Tech Skills For 2022

Whether you're deciding on a college major or looking to make a career change this year, it's important to be aware of what skills are (and aren't) going to be in demand once you're in the market for a job. There are tons of exciting areas of technology that are becoming increasingly relevant and could make for a fascinating career. At the same time, other popular areas that were the it-jobs for a while are starting to fade into the background.

In-Demand: Cloud Computing 

Due to so many industries having to quickly become remote and move all their operations online, cloud computing has become exponentially popular in recent years and only promises to become more so. Everything from cloud monitoring to troubleshooting is going to be relevant skills for anyone wanting to work in IT going forward. In fact, cloud-native skills are the top skill in demand for those working in the tech field right now. By adding this skill to your tool belt, you'll automatically become a more viable candidate for a large majority of IT jobs. Similarly, DevOps jobs are becoming more common and prove to be a huge growth area in the near future.  

In-Demand: Change Management

Because so many industries are having to undergo massive digital transformations, most CIOs are now in search of IT workers who are able to manage these changes successfully. Managing people is a skill that has been on the list for a long time, but in addition to being able to manage workers, leaders are now expected to work with frameworks and create plans for the future that will reduce the possibility of risk. This is a skill that contains a multitude of other skills within it, so anyone who invests time into developing their ability to lead change is going to be in high demand. Being able to orchestrate an entire business's transition into new technology will make any worker invaluable.

In-Demand: Cybersecurity Design

Along with the adoption of cloud technology and the massive changes so many businesses are undergoing, there's also a rise in demand for skilled cybersecurity workers. Rather than taking a reactionary approach to security as we've seen in the past, businesses are now interested in working cybersecurity into the design of their operations as a whole. This is going to require a total overhaul of existing security measures and will require skilled and capable individuals to pull off.

Going Out: Required Degrees

As for trends in technology that are starting to phase out, requiring STEM degrees for every single tech-related job is unlikely to be common going forward. CIOs are now searching for individuals who, while skilled in digital technologies, are also skilled in a lot of other areas as well. Being able to handle leadership roles and stay on top of trends will be key components of job requirements, in addition to IT skills. In addition, companies are becoming more interested in hiring based on capability, not just what a resume has to say. CIOs are increasingly aware that they're missing out on excellent candidates by making degrees a requirement since many skilled IT workers are now self-taught or are turning to boot camps and online courses for learning. 

Going Out: One-Skill Workers

Those who are putting all their eggs into one basket for future careers are going to be shocked when employers are also expecting them to have excellent communication and leadership skills. An employee who is able to handle complex work but cannot be relied on to correspond clearly is not going to meet the basic requirements for most jobs going forward. The good news? Jobs in technology are becoming more accessible for a wider range of skillsets and types of intelligence.
