I love sharing insights and strategies to empower people to become more successful in their careers. So I pulled together this helpful article with a few of the many reasons why maybe you should be considering a career in tech.

  • A wealth of opportunity

According to tech recruiters, Motion Recruitment, the has never been better to choose a career in technology. Two things are happening at the same time: thanks to the Great Resignation, more job openings are coming up, and as a reaction to the massive role of digital in our future, more new job roles are being created. Add to that the upturn in opportunities for remote and hybrid working, and there are more opportunities than ever for people seeking tech jobs. 

The variety available in tech is unrivalled, too. The tech world needs software developers, data scientists, managers, programme directors, HR, and salespeople, to name but a few. Whatever your skillset or talent, you are pretty much guaranteed to find your niche in tech. 

  • Skills not education

While a college degree is an advantage in many situations, it is not compulsory for a tech career. There are many on the job courses and other tech experiences that tech employers value as much, if not more, than a college degree. In fact, school leavers can join a tech company and get the majority of their training on the job, gathering a wealth of experience in the process, which is likely to make them a better option to future prospective employers than graduates with limited or no experience. 

  • Be part of the future, today

If you want to be part of something big, get a job in tech. No matter how seemingly insignificant your role may be, every job in tech is contributing to the future. This means that, not only will you be able to look back at your contribution, but if you choose a tech job, you are choosing a career that is likely to continue to offer you a wealth of opportunities, far into the future. 

In fact, according to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, many of the most in-demand jobs for the next decade are likely to be tech based. 

  • Embrace flexible working

As the digital age takes its hold, the opportunity to work remotely either full time or on a hybrid model is no longer an out-there bonus, it is the norm. As cloud storage, video conferencing and universally available superfast internet become readily available in most locations, it is easier than ever for people to work efficiently from home.

While, of course, it is not usually advisable – or even possible – to work a full day whilst looking after children or juggling day to day chores, home or hybrid working allows you more freedom to choose when and how you work. In a bid to attract the best talent from all over the world, tech companies are leveraging the flexibility of tech jobs, with many allowing employees to keep their own schedule outside of the traditional 9-5. As long as the job is done, and done well, many employers don’t mind when you do it. 

  • Take your talent anywhere

In this digital age, organizations don’t get to choose whether or not they want to invest in digital; for most, if they don’t invest, they won’t survive. If you start a career in tech, you will most likely be developing skills and experience that are transferable across industries, and across the world. From fashion to healthcare, car manufacturing to social media, every sector’s success depends on its technology and its ability to predict, and prepare for, future technical demands. 

  • Increased demand means competitive employment packages

Tech has always been a high-paid sector, but the shortage of tech talent and the rise of tech jobs means that it is more competitive than ever. This means that in order to attract the best talent, tech companies are having to up their game in terms of packages. This doesn’t just mean that they offer more money, in order to stand out in a competitive market, tech companies are offering increased flexibility, better benefits and great leave packages to entice the best talent from around the world. 

There is no doubt that the tech world has come a long way in the last decade. But it is not too late to join the party; tech is around to stay, and with talks of the metaverse and AI becoming central to our lives, it is pretty certain that tech is going to be a key area of focus for decades to come. If you love innovation, you are ambitious, and you want to be part of something that shapes the world tomorrow in some small (or large way), then it is definitely worth considering a tech career; it may just be the best decision that you ever make.

If you are considering a career in tech, don’t be limited by geography or self-doubt. Look far and wide, consult tech recruiters, and do your research. Shoot for the sun; if you reach the moon, it is still a success.
