Starting out can be hard, especially in a roller coaster economy where industries are getting shut down with the speed of lightning. What seems safe today, may not be as safe tomorrow. More so for juniors, who will have to choose carefully amidst a not so friendly economic climate.
So, what is still considered a safe bet today?
You’ve probably heard that jobs in IT offer high pay and fast career growth, and it’s true in most cases. In Romania, the country with one of the fastest internet and the country where we, as a software company are based, IT is a profitable career choice, as the online sector continues to grow. However, it’s not just a local trend. Worldwide there is a tendency to constantly find new uses for the internet, which leads to the creation of new jobs.
And the greater news? Companies will continue to be present on the Internet in the future, as a consequence of moving the audience to the virtual environment. Thus, web developers, web designers, SEO specialists, business analysts are just part of the jobs that will still be sought in the future.
Taking all of this into account, as a junior, your safest bet will be to start in IT as soon as you can.
But many think of IT as a field for programmers or tech support representatives, and rule it out simply because they believe they aren’t cut out for it. In reality, jobs like Java developer or DevOps Engineer are just a part of the industry’s openings. What is that supposed to mean for juniors? Simply that there may be a role for everyone in IT, even if it’s for a project manager, business analyst or cloud developer.
