Tech Hiring Trends: What to Expect in 2015

Are you getting ready to kick off the new year by sending out your resume? If you’re on the hunt for a new IT job in 2015, take advantage of the hottest tech hiring trends for 2015, and you’ll be more likely to hear “You’re hired!”

Going Mobile

Having mobile skills on your resume will make you an attractive tech candidate for many companies, as more businesses focus on leveraging the cloud—in both their workplaces and in their products. Businesses are still looking to create enterprise and consumer facing apps.

Know Your Web Applications

More and more companies are giving their employees tablets, laptops and notebooks—many of which rely on Web-based enterprise apps. If you’re up to speed with current web-based frameworks like ASP, Java or Ruby or web development tools such as HTML 5 and Javascript, you’ll be very attractive to hiring managers. It’s predicted there will be a steady need for experienced software engineers, architects and software developers.

Go Big with Big Data

Big data is going to get even bigger in 2015. With businesses wanting to store terabytes of data, someone needs to make sense of all of that information and make it accessible to users. Companies will be looking to hire people who can help them analyze data to take advantage of quickly changing tastes and preferences, like data scientists and analysts.

Keep Your Head in The Cloud

Along with big data comes an additional emphasis on cloud technology, as more companies are storing their data in the cloud. The biggest challenge? Figuring out how to keep cloud storage secure and safe. Your job search will be successful if you can help businesses feel more secure about the safety of their data in the cloud.
