​The IT industry continues to grow year on year with an expected increase of 5.1% in global IT spend over the next twelve months. The industry is rapidly expanding with multiple positions available at various levels of seniority. There has never been a better time to choose a career in technology and we have put together a list of compelling reasons below on why it should be your next step.

6 Reasons why a career in technology is an attractive option

1.Unlimited learning

It’s no secret that technology is constantly evolving which means you can too. The tech industry provides the opportunity to work on various projects and continuously enhance your skills. The people within the tech industry tend to be knowledge hungry and enthusiastic about their work meaning you’ll be surrounded by like minded individuals who will continue to help you grow and develop.

2. Money, money, money

In our current economy we’d be lying if we didn’t say money is a strong motivator for a lot of people. Working in technology is one of the highest paying jobs in the world with quick progression opportunities. Along with high salaries, many tech companies will also offer highly competitive benefits packages and bonuses. The best part is these lucrative salaries are only set to continue rising year on year in order to remain competitive within the market.

3. High availability of jobs

As previously mentioned technology continues to evolve and so does the demand for IT workers. With a variety of different roles there is sure to be one to suit each individual’s skillset.

4. Flexible working models

Many IT companies had adopted a hybrid or remote working model long before the Covid-19 pandemic made it the norm. Remote working means your location should no longer be an obstacle in your job search and as most IT jobs can be done remotely. This isn’t likely to change anytime soon.

5. Shape the future

Whichever sector you work in you’ll be making a difference to peoples’ lives. Whether that’s within finance, energy or any other sector, the technologies you’ll be working on will be making a real impact on the world.

6. Employee satisfaction

The technology sector is regularly rated incredibly highly in job satisfaction surveys. According to Reed, 87% of employees within the industry claim to genuinely enjoy their job and the work they do. Given the opportunities to freelance and work on a flexible working model (which is continuously voted one of the most desirable company perks) it’s no wonder that 1 in 12 candidates chose technology as their preferred sector.
