If you're looking for a job, you know that employers want to hire people with tech skills. We're not talking about skills that everyone else has, like "proficient in Microsoft Word;" employers who see that will zoom right past your resume. They want to see in-demand tech skills that not many other people have.
If you don't have many technical skills outside of Word or Excel, don't worry. You can find classes online or at nearby schools to learn them. They might even give you a certificate when you're done. You just need to know which ones to focus on.
Indeed.com, one of the world's top job search sites, dedicated an entire blog post to this topic. "The tech industry has one of the most competitive job markets, and finding the right talent to fill key positions is never going to be easy," the post explains.
Within this incredibly competitive market, Indeed shared the following positions that are highly sought after: engineering managers, front-end developers, full-stack developers, UX/UI designers, QA engineers, mobile developers, data scientists, back-end developers, online marketing specialists, software architects and VP engineers.
For many, those jobs might sound like a foreign language. But, even if you're not planning to shift your career into what's been defined as the "tech industry," corporations and small businesses are also in need of people with similar qualifications. This is because of the ever-changing landscape of technology, the web and even cybercrime.
So, what are the in-demand skills employers are looking for? Keep reading for 10 tech skills that will set your resume apart.
