Do you expect hiring for the Computer Tech region to increase, decrease, or stay the same over the next few years?

The world is starting to use more technology and becoming more advanced so maybe the demand will start increasing.

Nick’s Answer

I expect this field to continue to increase over the next 5-10 years.

While a recent wave of lay-offs among "tech" companies have made the news and led to some scary sounding headlines, the reality is that over 60% of Software Engineers don't actually work in Tech/software companies and the need to build technology into every business is only increasing. From grocery stores to airlines, everyone has a phone App, and that App needs to make it easier to buy from that business or they're going to miss out on business.

The tech companies themselves are still hiring too, sometimes even the same ones that just did layoffs a month or two ago.

Francisco’s Answer

really everything that is technology will be the boom of the future. As such, technology hires will steadily increase.
In the future, in addition to the Internet of Things, data scientists and AI, in my personal perception, the METAVERSE will be important.

Michael’s Answer

We believe that the demand for Computer Tech jobs will continue to increase over the next few years. The US government appears to be investing heavily in businesses to become a world leader in the microchip industry, among other things. Especially with the recent pandemic, the need for becoming more independent in technology is increasing.

Tracie’s Answer

There are lots of research articles written that talk about the tech talent shortage- which is expected to be at an all-time high by 2030. Research consistently shows that tech is growing faster than we can keep up with it. Here is an excellent article https://www.kornferry.com/insights/this-week-in-leadership/talent-crunch-future-of-work and I encourage to do a quick google search to see more about the future of tech. All the best!

Viswadhara’s Answer

Technology is not a fad. It is going the way of ABCs. Everything will be driven by technology in the coming future. It might not be learning "Computer science" or "coding" per say. You need to learn how to do what you like using technology.
For example,
If you like to draw, learn how to use "Procreate" or do UX design
If you like to sculpt, learn how to use 3D printer...
If you like to write, learn how to self publish yourself..

Technology is life!

Tech is here to stay. Big areas of complexity and growth are cybersecurity and AI. They are also interesting too. Things moving into cloud more and more and observability will become even more important.

Bryce’s Answer

Everything seems to indicate that tech is not just here to stay, but will be evolving and growing in the future. We expect to ramp up and increase highly-technical fields.

There may be some worry over recession or fluctuations in the job market, however. This can make the field more competitive, so you'll want to find ways to make yourself stand out. Certifications, learning different coding languages, and expanding your hard skills can be a great way to set yourself apart. I personally pursued Salesforce certifications, which are easily accessible and self-taught at https://trailhead.salesforce.com/. You can also find other coding courses at Udemy and Codecademy.

More importantly, though - look for something that you enjoy doing. If you push to get hard skills that align with your interests, you'll be more motivated to continue your learning experience.

Teresa’s Answer

Hello Michael,
We believe that the tech industry and the need for engineers and technology folks will continue to be in demand. Priorities and areas of focus may evolve, but there will always be a need for solving problems. There is never a recession on innovation and human progress.

You could also check out this site: Department of Labor - Occupational Outlook https://www.bls.gov/ooh/. This site provides an outlook on jobs in the US and highlights growth rates from now to 2031.

Automation and artificial intelligence are very much in the news, but we believe that there will be a need for people to work with technology as these are still new areas and in many ways unproven. For example, there is a lot of work in the area of self-driving cars, but we are a long way away from everyone having one.

Best of luck in your journey

Rajukiran’s Answer

I would say technology is growing at an exponential rate and evolving daily with new technologies like AI. At the same time, hiring in the computer tech field is going to increase at least for the next 1 to 5 years. But, with the evolving technologies, our jobs could also be replaced and it is not too far away. There was a recent announcement about ChatGPT https://openai.com/blog/chatgpt/ which is programmed in such a way that you can get an answer for anything and even in a way that a layman can understand these technologies.

All the Best!!

Vidya’s Answer

With an increasingly digital world, the need for automation and software products will only grow. This in turn will require more specialized software engineering skills.

Having said that, software engineering is the go-to career for many students across the world. Being able to differentiate yourself will be necessary.

Austin’s Answer

Despite the current news and downturn in tech in 2022/2023 we fully anticipate the overall industry to continue to grow and outpace other industries for the long term. As the world increasingly shifts towards digital and companies increasingly rely on software and tech to operate their businesses and engage with customers, tech skills and tech employees with be in high demand.

As Nick outlined above, despite recent layoffs at some of the marquee names other companies continue hire at a brisk pace and the overall demand for experienced tech talent remains high in my experience.
