Skills Needed For Future Job Market

I found an interesting article in a magazine at the breakfast table. Thought to share it with you. The content of this article has taken from the same magazine. It is about four poles of growing technology. Let's start.

India finds itself at a unique advantage when compared to other nations due to its young population. However, a young population is both an opportunity as well as a problem depending on how the advantage is utilized to boost the economy.

The rapidly growing population indicates the urgent need for skill development in order to enable the growing population to have meaningful employment. An education that places an emphasis on imparting skills over rote learning and memorization is necessary to ensure that the youth are gainfully employed.

For India to maintain its stature of being the largest provider of skilled programmers and technologies, we will have to ensure that its populace is skilled accordingly so as to remain competitive in the global arena. What follows are five important skills that will continue to be in high demand in the Indian job market in the years to come:


Coding or programming in languages such as Javascript or Python has consistently been a skill that is in high demand. Many companies in the past few years have produced both hardware and software that feature augmented reality and machine learning.

Individuals who possess the skills required to create, design and refine applications that make the most of these technologies and application programming interfaces, will be able to consistently secure rewarding employment.

Machine Learning:

Machine learning (ML) being a branch of Artificial Intelligence (AI) has proved itself to be one of the most important technological developments in the last few years as it facilitates algorithm and programs to continually learn and improve their efficiency with time.

Individuals possessing a sound understanding of machine learning will ensure that they become integral components of both emerging and established corporations.

Mobile Development:

Computers are constantly in need of mobile applications that make their product or service accessible to the growing target audience. An exciting direction in which mobile applications are currently headed in is integrating technologies such as augmented reality like Pokemon Go.

Applications such as these blend elements from the environment around users making the content appearing on screen more engaging.


Companies are currently are constantly on the lookout for individuals with digital marketing skills in order to be able to better their presence and visibility across the internet. This skill has obvious advantages as greater exposure to users across the internet would result in more customers and thus revenue.

Cyber-Security Specialists:

It is no surprise that cybersecurity and information security are one of the highest paying and most wanted skillsets. Ransomware attacks such as WannaCry along with hardware vulnerabilities that were an exhibit in meltdown and specter have become the new norm (standard) in modern society. As the world continues its reliance on outsourcing services such as cloud computing providers, coupled with internal networks that are vulnerable, the need for business to staff a skilled security team is of utmost importance.

Final Words:

The World is growing at an enormous rate in science and technology. Emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI) and augmented reality (AR), big data analytics, machine learning (ML) and virtual reality, are set to change the landscape on ease of doing business. Individuals with skills in these areas will be an asset to both new and established corporations. (Source: EducationTimes)
