August 12, 2022

[et_pb_section admin_label="section"] [et_pb_row admin_label="row"] [et_pb_column type="4_4"][et_pb_text admin_label="Text"]Given the current economic climate, many economists are considering the U.S. to be entering a recession. This can cause confusion, fear, and uncertainty, especially as it pertains to job security.To ease some of those feelings, below you’ll find some careers in tech that tend to hold up better than others amid a recession. In the event of a recession, companies will likely shift to digital strategies, making these careers in tech valuable and highly coveted.

  • Programmer/Developer
  • No matter the programming language you’ve mastered, having the knowledge alone makes you extremely valuable. The coding skills you possess as a programmer or developer are in-demand for companies looking to build or enhance their websites, and enhance their consumer experience. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, jobs in software development are expected to grow 22% by 2030. This is much faster than the average career.
  • Cloud Administrator
  • More businesses are transitioning to cloud servers and this increase sparks the need for cloud administrators to maintain and update the cloud infrastructure. Amid a recession, it is likely that efforts regarding security will be heightened as company strategies shift digitally, and managing a more secure server will be the responsibility of the cloud administrator.
  • Data Analyst
  • During a recession, the need to preserve and monitor data, as well as use data to make predictions to drive a business’ initiatives will be heightened. Data analysts would be relied on heavily to study the data presented and interpret it to solve any current or future problems.

The three positions mentioned above can all be obtained after you complete one of our bootcamps, and take as little as 15 to 20 weeks to complete.
