Jobs in Computing and Information Technology have been on the rise for years as technology overtakes more traditional ways of carrying out work-related tasks. A good example of this is newspapers being phased out in the wake of more content being published online for people to read on their phones and tablets. While IT jobs may be constantly on the rise, they demand candidates with a more in-depth knowledge of technology.

There’s a large range of different roles within the IT and Computing field, from simple data entry to developing bespoke websites and systems. This is the great thing about entering the IT & Computing sector; there are many different specialties one can decide to work towards depending on your experience and your interests.

What’s Expected?

Jobs in the computing and IT sector tend to require some form of qualification(s) to be sure that employees understand the sometimes complex nature of software and hardware. Naturally, the qualification required often depends on the area of IT you are trying to enter, be it software development, web design, IT support or anything in the realm of computers. The level of qualification required -from HNC to MSc- will also vary considerably from employer to employer, so it is worth doing some research into where you want to work so you can develop the pre-requisites before applying.

There are multiple traits and skills that are perfect to have when working in the computing and IT sector, things that employers look for in applicants. For more creative roles such as web designers, employers look for applicants with substantial knowledge of the field, a mind that thinks outside the box, an eye for detail, and a genuine interest in the work. For more analytical roles, employers look for those who are logical thinkers, detail oriented, hardworking, and committed. By showing employers that you have these qualities in an interview situation, you’re that much more likely to secure the position you’ve been looking for.
