Hey Jessica,

I’m a Recruiter specifically for CS/tech roles so I understand this pretty well. In truth, the requirements will vary from company to company because every company leverages different tech stacks. Some companies main programming language might be Python, but another company’s language might be R. One company might be using a cloud environment while another company is using on-premise.

When you’re job searching you should check to make sure that the job requirements as far as tech stack aligns with your experience. The company should definitely list the languages, databases, or whatever relevant tools they use.

Best of luck!

Hi Jessica,

The Information Technology field is growing as technology changes and advances. Still employers are still looking for a basic set of important skills - here are skill sets that tech companies look for when hiring candidates.

Problem Solving
Being a logical and motivated problem solver is one of the main requirements of numerous Information Technology roles. Most days, dealing with technology is dealing with trouble shooting and problem-solving tasks to ensure a program is running correctly.

Coding
Coding is an important skill to have, but specifically for those looking to enter into tech field. As an Information Technology professional, you will not just be expected to understand code, but you will likely be expected to write it as well and to understand multiple different coding languages.

Communication
Communication skills are important as information technology professionals are often required to work across many different teams. A tech professional needs to know how to work with a team and how to communicate updates and changes.

Time and Project Management
