With technology rewriting how we live our lives, its no surprise there’s an increase in the value of these jobs. If one of these jobs is your bread and butter you're in luck and looking at a very lucrative career.

The global growth of the IT Industry. 

As the automation and integration of technology increases in our day to day lives, we can only expect to see the IT industry continue to boom. As more traditional industries become increasingly redundant. 

And the growth isn’t said to stop! The global IT industry is said to be worth $5 trillion this year. With an expected growth of 4%. 

What does the IT shortage mean for you? 

The digital age has seen the reverberation in the need for IT professionals. The shortage results in people with the required skill set being able to cash in. The skill shortage isn't set to increase anytime soon either. Enrollments in the study of the relevant fields remained stagnant, even following strong promotion over the last ten years. 

So it's a great time to start studying or seek a career change!
