The 20 Most In-Demand IT Skills

In our ever-increasing digital society, IT jobs are in high demand. The technology industry is hot and there’s never been a better time to carve out a career in it.
According to U.S. News & World Report, job growth and salaries in the tech industry are increasing as more employers have complex infrastructure needs.[1]
There’s no question that there’s plenty of opportunity out there. But, in an industry that’s rapidly evolving and constantly changing, what skills are companies looking for today?

In a recent InfoWorld post, Computerworld’s Patrick Thibodeau covers what certified and noncertified skills will be hot with employers in the coming months:

IT professionals seeking certifications in the coming months may get their best return with cloud and security-related certifications. Agile-related training won’t hurt, either.
But there are many other skills that are more likely to be valued by employers than others, according to the most recent quarterly tracking analysis by Foote Partners. This survey calculates skill rankings on what employers are willing to pay.

Check out the survey results here and send us a tweet @PerficientLife if you have any skills you think should be added to the list.
