Aimed at addressing the skill gap in the IT industry, global e-learning platform Edureka, launched their Tech Career Guide 2019 – a guide that provides technology professionals with the precise learning paths for in-demand technologies namely, Machine Learning, Big Data, Cloud Computing, DevOps, Blockchain and Cybersecurity. This 360-degree career guide also touches upon industry outlook, job trends, salaries, and learning hours for these technologies in addition to sharing findings of a survey on the most sought-after technology job roles this year. With the Tech Career Guide, IT professionals who want to upskill will now have easy access to a one-stop solution to build their dream career path.
Vineet Chaturvedi, Co-Founder, Edureka, said, “Today’s IT professionals are already aware of the importance of re-skilling in the fast-evolving industry. What they lack is structured and expertly-curated learning paths to the rewarding job roles which they aspire to land soon. We have observed that while preparing for such roles they often get misled by irrelevant information online or waste too much time finding their own way. We have launched the Edureka Tech Career Guide to fulfill this need and help IT professionals efficiently prep for the trending technology jobs where there exists a huge skill gap.”
The Edureka Tech Career Guide seeks to answer the most frequently asked questions around technology career paths, especially those for emerging technologies while providing credible information based on Edureka’s deep expertise in these technologies. It is the ultimate resource for technology professionals seeking answers on the most searched queries:
- Which technical skills are worth learning?
- Which job titles are the most rewarding & their industry outlook?
- The exact career path to hot technology job roles recommended learning hours & resources
As per Web Master global data (2015-18), 34.4 percent searches have been on how to attain a job role (e.g. data scientist), 30.7 percent searches have been on specific technology categories, 19.8 percent on specific tech careers and 15.1 percent on what courses to take to bag such roles. It is evident from the above data that technology professionals know which technology they want to upskill in – they just don’t know how to go about it in an organized manner. This fact is also supplemented by the sheer number of similar queries received by Edureka on its blogs and YouTube channel daily.
A dip-stick survey conducted by Edureka, as a foundation for the career guide, also showed the same findings. Only 13.8 percent of the surveyed technology professionals said they were skill-ready for their dream job, 16.5 percent of them said that they felt they were not skill-ready, and the remaining techies said they were still up-skilling, often in an unorganized way.
As more and more people search online on how they need to upskill and don’t get anywhere, there is a definite need for a resource that guides IT professionals through a step-by-step process on upskilling. The Edureka Tech Career Guide 2019 aims to offer all this and more to technology professionals who are unsure of the learning path to their dream career. It also gives the recommended learning roadmap to those who have already started their learning journey and provide course correction if needed.
