Today I am writing about the job opportunities for Cloud Computing
Jobs. The job market for those with Cloud Computing skills is very strong right now. Most new projects in major companies and government agencies are being initiated in the Cloud. This is creating a strong demand for those that have skills and certifications with Cloud Computing systems.
Some of the skills that are in strong demand are those of developers, IT architects, operations staff and security specialists. This is being fueled by some major companies that are moving their entire data centers to such services as Amazon AWS and Microsoft’s Azure. IT security specialists are in particularly high demand.
Although some of these jobs are located in high demand areas such as Seattle WA, there in a large distribution of jobs worldwide as cloud providers scale out their data centers to worldwide locations. In fact, Amazon has just located a facility here in my home town of Columbus, OH.
Probably the best news for IT professionals is the salary data for these positions. According to Forbes, the median salary for IT professionals in 2016 is $124,300. In addition, many companies are having difficulty filling these positions. Now is the perfect time to work on cloud computing skills and certifications while the demand for these positions is high. We are continuing to work on new classes and you will see more out from us in the coming months. See you in class!
