Technology is the industry to be in these days. New jobs are being created every day, and organizations worldwide are investing in everything from emerging technologies to cybersecurity, data analytics and much more.
In fact, Glassdoor – a job and recruiting website – recently released its list of the 50 Best Jobs in America for 2022. We aren’t the least bit surprised to discover that 21 of the top 50 jobs on the list are tech jobs. Even better, 16 of them have a median base salary of $100,000+.
Of course, we must make it clear that the data this list is based on represents data aggregated on the Glassdoor platform. But the information presented is not wildly exaggerated. It tracks with CompTIA data, too.
For example, the CompTIA Tech Jobs report shows that employment in the U.S. technology sector increased for the 14th consecutive month in January 2022, continuing to prove to be a great career path for IT professionals breaking into the industry. Employer job postings for open positions grew from 332,000 to over 339,000 in January alone.
The demand is there. Organizations are looking for qualified IT pros to bridge gaps and fill newly created positions – and they are willing to pay a pretty penny. But how do you get the skills you need to make that kind of money? That’s where IT certifications can help.
CompTIA categorizes technology jobs across five buckets:
  1. IT Support
  2. Computer Networking & Infrastructure
  3. Cybersecurity
  4. Software & Web Development
  5. Data & Analytics
    IT support is considered a launching pad for a career in technology, and CompTIA A+ is the industry standard for getting started. The other four buckets include entry-level, intermediate and advanced-level jobs. Following these career pathways could earn you a paycheck with lots of zeros. Let’s look at the training, skills and experience you need to land one of these most in-demand and high-paying technology jobs.
    Cybersecurity Jobs
    There’s always something new to learn in technology – and staying at least one step ahead of cyber criminals is the goal. If you have a technical background and an interest in cybersecurity, do your homework and inventory what skills you need to specialize.
    If you don’t have a technical background, start by establishing that core foundation of knowledge, getting some experience, and then upskill. Think of every position you have as steppingstones to something bigger and better.
    The following cybersecurity job roles appear on the Glassdoor Best Jobs in America for 2022 list. While it is helpful to have a degree in computer science or a related field, there are multiple pathways to becoming a cybersecurity professional, and earning IT certifications can accelerate learning.
