It’s no secret that the job market is evolving and companies have to learn how to adapt in the digital age. For those seeking jobs, the amount of new technology to keep up with can seem overwhelming. Just when you’ve become proficient in one area, something new becomes the next big thing. Don’t worry too much though, we’re here to make it clear. Here are the top technical skills that will win you the job.


Dōmo arigatō, Mr. Roboto

You have to have been living under a rock to have missed out on how big AI is becoming. Artificial Intelligence is incorporated into everything from our speakers, our phones and even our cars and using it to boost your company is big business. It may still be a specialist area, but having career experience in AI such as product specialism or design is a highly desirable trait.


Every breath you take, every move you make…

Data is a core component of most businesses and having someone who understands and knows how to utilise it properly is always an impressive trait. Data provides an insight into how customers shop, how they work and how they live and more which can benefit just about every business. If you are a data scientist or analyst make sure you mention this as it will work in your favour.


‘I came in like a firewallll’

Technology can bring many advantages to a business there are also disadvantages and some key ones are phishing, malware, ransomware and data leaks to name a few. Because of this, it’s no good a company using technology if they don’t know how to protect against such risks. That’s why candidates with expertise in cybersecurity are very valuable.

This is especially important for companies who collect huge amounts of customer data which needs to be protected and stored correctly so if you have knowledge in this area be sure to let potential employers know.


Karma, karma, karma, karma, karma chameleon

Simply put, being an adaptable candidate who is willing to learn new skills, use unfamiliar technology and welcome challenges will always impress companies no matter what job you are applying for. It demonstrates a can-do attitude and that you aren’t afraid of new opportunities, while embracing these means that you could also incorporate how you approached them into a dragon slaying story during the interview process.


I’d rate my programming puns C++

Knowledge of programming and coding is a core skill to have in any tech sector job and knowing how to use languages such as Javascript and Python or having experience with them will make you a strong candidate well versed in the necessary job skills. Many people may think that you only need these to be a software engineer or computer systems analyst but surprising fields like graphic design and digital marketing are also making the most of candidates that know more than how to post a tweet.
