It is a common human nature to predict future events and keep worrying about how that would turn out to be. But let’s be honest, no one can really predict what the future holds for us.
The knowledge you have today may not be sufficient to fetch you a job tomorrow. With the growing technologies and cut-throat competition, it is necessary that you update yourself with knowledge of the latest technologies in India.
So, let’s start looking into the career guide for freshers through this article. Here are the 10 most growing technologies for freshers to start their career.
1. SOFTWARE DEVELOPER
Software developers are the brains behind computer programs. Some develop the applications that allow people to do specific tasks on a computer or another device while others develop the underlying systems that run the devices or that control networks.
This is a massive industry with growing technologies and one of the safest bets that’ll help fetch jobs for freshers and won’t be going away anytime soon, as it is in demand all over the world.
We are surrounded by software and this is becoming more and more pronounced every year which makes me truly believe in its strong future.
2. CLOUD COMPUTING
Cloud computing is the delivery of computing services such as servers, storage, databases, networking, software, analytics and more, over the Internet.
Here the Internet is referred to as “the Cloud”. Companies offering these computing services are called cloud providers. Such companies typically charge for cloud computing services based on usage.
Cloud computing has several benefits for business and end users which paves way for jobs for freshers. Cloud computing services can be private, public or hybrid and through three servers namely the SaaS, PaaS, and IaaS.
Freshers should make it a point to gain complete knowledge of this growing technology.
3. DATA ANALYST
Data analysts also gather, process and analyze a large amount of statistical data but their skills may not be as advanced as that of the data scientist.
For instance: Data scientists can create new algorithms whereas a data analyst may not be able to do it. However, their goals remain the same, i.e. to discover how data can be used to answer questions and solve problems of a business in the most beneficial way possible.
4. INTERNET OF THINGS (IoT)
The Internet of Things is basically the network of physical devices, vehicles, home appliances, and other such items embedded with electronics, software, sensors, actuators, and connectivity which enables these objects to connect and exchange data.
Internet of things is one the fastest growing technology in the world right now. You must have heard of apps that allow you to use your smartphone as a remote to operate your television, air conditioner, etc., this is one of the examples of Internet of Things.
Similarly, everything around us can be connected with the help of the internet using this technology which makes it a promising career choice for freshers.
5. BLOCKCHAIN DEVELOPER
This is another interesting field that is growing rapidly in India. Platforms like Ethereum taking the lead has led to more and more companies needing developers who understand the blockchain, smart contracts, and can build decentralized applications.
So, first thing first, what is a blockchain?
The blockchain is a chain of blocks. Here each block contains valuable data without any central supervision. It is cryptographically secure and immutable.
Blockchain developers face tons of challenges which makes it a less crowded field. A skilled fresher can easily make it big in this field.
6. WEARABLE TECHNOLOGY
Wearable technology is smart electronic devices that can be worn on the body as implants or accessories.
Wearable technologies are becoming increasingly popular which makes this a great career choice.
One of the major obstacles to wearable technology is designing a device that people would want to wear all the time. However, this does not in any way affect the future of the industry.
The big thing everyone is driving for in modern times is seamless integration, devices that can be attached to jewelry, jackets, or even undergarments so you can wear them anytime, anywhere, and any day without having them affect your style or comfort.
7. DATA SCIENTIST
A data scientist is a person who helps gather, process and analyze a large amount of data.
They should also be skilled in communicating their findings and in offering recommendations to others in the business in a way that will prove to be beneficial to the business.
This is a growing technology as it helps to predict the future of the business through extensive market analysis.
Data scientists can also predict customer behavior and help the business gain edge over the rivals. Data Scientists are required to have sound programming skills, analytical skills, mathematical skills and a high educational qualification.
If you are a fresher looking for a career in information technology, you already know what networking is.
Construction, design, and use of a network, including the physical (cabling, hub, bridge, switch, router, and so forth), the selection and use of telecommunication protocol and computer software for using and managing the network, and the establishment of operational policies and procedures related to the network.
Networking is one such field that will always see only growth making it one of the best career choices for freshers.
A strong comprehension of the hardware and protocols used to create networks is essential to be successful in future.
9. SEAMLESS VOICE RECOGNITION
Seamless voice recognition (SVG) has to be one of the future hot spots in technology. When it comes to the future of voice recognition, the consensus seems to be VR in everything.
Keyboards and similar control panels will slowly be phased out of all devices as they gain the ability to simply listen to our commands making SVG a top career option.
10. CRYPTOCURRENCY INVESTOR
Hearing a lot about Bitcoins these days aren’t we? Well, it’s not just Bitcoins, cryptocurrency is the new hot topic of the year.
There are people who have made a lot of money investing in cryptocurrency and a lot of people who have lost money.
However, the market here is fairly young making it a great career choice for freshers. You can make a really high return on your investment if you have some technical knowledge and you follow the market daily.
Now the biggest question is where do freshers go to gain knowledge about these growing technologies and utilize it in the best possible way to get a job? The answer is myAMCAT.
