What to expect in 2019 for IT Careers
IT careers are becoming a necessity with the way the world is developing. Not everyone requires you to be a technical guru though. The world is moving to a very AI based system. We can see this when we go to Wal-Mart with self-checkout, or at Panera, where you can order from a kiosk.
2019 will be the year that people start to optimize the work being done. With more companies switching to paperless documentation, there is a need for support for applications, developers of new applications, people to help keep online information safe. With the switch to paperless, there is an increased risk of people trying to steal information, people we know as "hackers".
With these switches, the IT field is growing. There is an increase demand in security, and in support. We are in a unique time where people have still lived without the internet, therefore they need help adapting to a new world.
