Throw out the image of the maligned, awkward, geeky nerd outcast. “Techies” are now the cool “in” crowd, a fact being celebrated October 3rd as National Techies Day. It’s a great opportunity to thank those who fix your computer bugs on a regular basis, keeping you productive and taking the stress out of your workday.
Kidding and imagery aside, National Techies Day is observed annually with a mission: to encourage students in the pursuit of careers in technology. It’s a job sector growing at high speed with opportunities projected in rapidly increasing numbers. Think of it as helping shape the work force of the future. Case in point, tech jobs in the U.S. are predicted to grow 22% by next year alone…far outpacing other sectors like service, retail, and manufacturing.
Increasing use of automation also plays a hand in this trend. In other words, expect fewer manual labor options in the future and more positions for those who know how to create, design, operate, handle, repair, and maintain driving technology.
