Myth: Tech jobs are only at tech companies

Reality

Canada’s digital economy employs over one million people in all sectors and industries, according to Information and Communications Technology Council (ICTC) monthly snapshot report (January 2013). As organizations increasingly entrench technology in all aspects of their business, the demand for top tech talent continues to rise.

Information technology (IT) is among the most competitive fields for talent; according to a market analysis by job site CareerBuilder.com. Software engineer job listings on the site are up 74% and social media manager postings are up 48%, CareerBuilder CEO, Matt Ferguson said in a Globe and Mail interview.

Staying on top of in-demand tech skills is a sure way to remain “hot” and work in any industry you can imagine. See other in-demand tech jobs on our Career Profiles page.
