Programming for computers may not be more in demand, but coding is most widely in demand within many industries.
Leaving the sector only of tech, there are multiple companies which are relying on the computer code. According to the research, it is said that the higher number of job vacancies are in tech and that too in big brands. A software engineer will see himself working in a good brand, as well as hospitals and as an automotive manufacturer too.
As per the Bureau of labor statistics, it is projected that the ones who are computer programmers will obviously decrease 8% to 302200 positions over the upcoming years to the projects of the outsource business to the less expensive contract workers which are overseas.
There are 7 million jobs opportunities which in any case needs coding skills and jobs for programming are almost growing at a higher speed than the average of the market.
A job market analytics firm found that there were as many as 7 million job openings in 2015 in occupations that required coding skills. They also found that programming jobs overall are growing 12% faster than the market average.
This last finding is the result of researchers broadening the scope of their analysis to include coding skills across five major job categories:
- Information Technology (IT) worker
- Data Analysts
- Artists and designers
So here we can see the coding skills market demand revealing the specific jobs and many skills which are hired by multiple employers.
One major revelation: Half of all programming openings are in industries outside of technology. Among them:
- Health Care
As a result, coding has become a core skill that bolsters a candidates chances of commanding a high salary. Burning Glass researchers found that jobs that require coding skills pay up to $22,000 per year more, on average. For students looking to increase their potential income, few other skills open the door to as many well-paying careers, they write in the report. Nearly half (49%) of all jobs that pay more than $58,000 require some coding skills, according to their analysis.
What's most in demand? The report found that the highest demand was for programming languages with broad applicability. Other skills in demand include:
Java-General purpose programming
Linux-Computer system operations
XML- General purpose programming
C++ General purpose programming, especially in engineering
C# General purpose programming
Python General purpose programming
.NET General purpose programming
Obviously, positions in IT require more specialization, yet positions in science that use mathematical computing programs such as Python, don't need them on a daily basis.
Acquiring such knowledge used to land squarely in the environs of higher education. Now we know that while techs current most in-demand job of data scientist usually requires an advanced degree in math and physics, programmers don't need a computer science degree to succeed.
It is founded that most (89%) of coding jobs require a bachelors degree, as compared to 44% of all career-track jobs. For those with neither a bachelor or a coding school certification, short-term credentials can be parlayed into roles such as computer user support, engineering technicians, and drafters. All of these are options with considerable demand, the researchers say.
