Information Technology is such a vast area it is impossible for us to outline all areas but we have offered a guide below on a number areas we can support with staff or jobs to consider in various areas of IT.
People with jobs in information technology (IT) use computers, software, networks, servers, and other technology to manage and store data.
IT job titles can vary significantly from one company to another. For instance, one company may recruit a “developer” while another company recruits a “programmer”—but the work may be precisely the same at the two companies, despite the job title variation. Also, many of the skills in this field are transferable, which means candidates may be qualified for many different roles.
Some IT jobs with higher pay require that candidates have a bachelor’s degree, ideally in computer science, software engineering, etc. Some employers care more about the quality of your work than they do about your formal education. As such, many companies evaluate candidates based on their portfolio and experience.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), jobs in IT are growing well above average rates of all other occupations, with 11% growth expected from 2019 to 2029. The BLS predicts that the IT industry will add 531,200 new jobs by 2029. These occupations are high-paying, more than twice the median wage.
Below is a list of some of the most common job titles from the IT industry, as well as some descriptions of each.
