The current job prospects I would suggest are STEM jobs ( Science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) -Any jobs that has to do with STEM fields will always be on a high demand. The rationale would be that everything is touched by tech, and human beings are thinking of different ways to automate such as Artificial Intelligence, data analytics, etc,

Not to say other fields outside of STEM are not in need, but think about it " if it is easy to do, a lot of people would go in; if it is hard, only few would)

Hi Tiyeanna,

Tech jobs are really on high in the US and companies are constantly seeking for talent. Before I joined a tech company, I did some research on the positions I would like to be at and understood what skills were required for those specific positions. For example, in my case I wanted to be a data scientist and I realized I had to learn R and Python if I wanted to be in the are. I did some online courses in websites like Coursera, Udemy, etc. and learned more online about things I was curious about.

I recommend you to do a similar process for the position you want to apply for and be curious! Companies will really appreciate your willingness and ability to learn.

Although it is in high demand, it is still competitive. So I would recommend next steps.

Hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you have any questions.

Rafael recommends the following next steps:

  • Find the position you want to apply to
  • Learn the necessary skills and tools
  • Search for a company that you really like and identify with - try to connect with people and leverage your network
  • Apply and show your interest for the position and the work they do
  • Prepare: for behavioral questions, Google will be a very good source in helping you prepare for it
