Below is an example of a senior developer resume:
The Most In-Demand Professions Nowadays
Information Security Specialist
In 2021, cybercrime increased 7-fold. Companies are losing money: $20 billion ($20,000,000,000!) – that’s how much this year’s mistakes in big business security systems cost. Experts predict that by 2031, losses will be $265 billion annually. Naturally, companies are trying to do something and are actively investing in security systems and their developers. This means ethical hackers, your way out!
In 2021, the number of available jobs for security analysts and engineers increased by 33%. And the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts steady growth in the field for at least 10 years to come. But that’s not even the most interesting part.
The founder of the Herjavec Group, which conducts surveys on cybersecurity employment, argues that the cybersecurity industry has simply zero unemployment in the global skills market in 2021. Meanwhile, the skills shortage is only growing – and will continue to do so.
According to a Dice analysis, cybersecurity salaries grew faster than other salaries in 2021, adding 16.3% on average.
Demand in the market exceeds supply. The entry threshold is high – there are both staffing shortages and active salary increases just to keep experienced people in. The shortage of personnel, which emerged during the year, is enormous.
Business always needs system analysts. During crises and after them. This year is no exception. The business has enough problems. After all, business is those very public places, which are not allowed without QR, and the organization of public events, and other initiatives, in fact, requiring mass gatherings of people. Hundreds of thousands of businesses and legal entities simply shut down.
And getting out of the crisis hole is helped by systems and business analysts (true, if they are good; bad ones are the opposite).
In the field of systems and business analysis there is a lack of fresh blood: the entry threshold into the profession is high, a specialist needs to understand all the nuances of business and markets. In most cases, people with experience in management or data analytics leave for BA. And demand is growing much faster than supply.
Mobile App Developer
The mobile development market is growing at a tremendous rate-the pandemic and lockdowns have not hindered it. Whereas three years ago Statista estimated the global capitalization of mobile development at $1.3 trillion, today it has grown almost fivefold to $6.3 trillion.
In 2022, mobile IT development will remain one of the most in-demand areas, with iOS and Android growing in wages.
The entry threshold into the mobile app development profession is much lower than systems analytics. June will be able to find a job right after the course. But because of this, there is a problem – a large dispersion of salaries. Even with average positions, it’s hard to make up your mind. For example, Payscale estimates the median salary of a specialist at $69,000 a year, and Indeed at $120,000.
According to IT recruiters and developers at CodinGame, DevOps is the most in-demand specialty at the beginning of the year: DevOps was sought by 43% of recruiters in 2021.
Nothing has changed in December – but the shortage has only become more acute. On LinkedIn, the number of jobs for DevOps has increased by 50% over the year.
The DevOps market was hit by a pandemic. Companies were primarily hiring people to help get out of the hole. The main goal is development, you have to fight for the vacated portions of the market, so the shortage of DevOps is growing. But at the same time, “overheating” on the employer side is growing.
The situation with the database administrator is very interesting. The market is growing at the usual rate. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics says that in 2021 growth was “only” 8%. And it will continue to grow at about the same rate through 2030.
But the unemployment rate for DBAs is very low at just 1.7%. DBAs are in-demand, but not a high-demand profession, so the influx of specialists here is lower than the growth of the market. Recruiters point out that it is harder to find savvy people in 2021.
The reason is simple – the withdrawal of companies from their own physical servers and the transition to cloud services affects not only Cloud Architect, but also DBAs. Many companies have had to rebuild their database infrastructure.
AI/ML Specialists, Data Scientists
The market is growing exponentially. It is expected that in the next 5 years the hype will subside a bit and the need for AI engineers will stabilize, but right now there is just an acute shortage of specialists. Large companies are willing to take on junks, teach them everything, and pay big money at the same time.
According to McKinsey analytics, 57% of medium and large businesses have already implemented or are about to implement artificial intelligence and neural networks into their workflows. By comparison, that number is 45% in 2020.
AI/ML engineers are needed by big businesses, and there are tons of very cool jobs from Google, Facebook, Deloitte, Nissan, BBC, Amazon, and other market leaders in a variety of fields. Applications for AI in 2021 range from human resources to genetic engineering.
Of course, the brightest specialty remains Data Science. According to a study by BurtchWorks, if you work as a Data Scientist or Data Engineer and change jobs, your salary will go up 20%. The average figure for a 3X increase is 6.6%.
This is because of the fierce, very fierce competition for talent in the market. And this is in spite of the fact that various bonus systems are common in the Data market.
All of these specialties will be relevant in 2022 and beyond.
