1.Application Development

Applications developers translate software requirements into workable programming code and maintain and develop programs for use in business.

Most specialise in a specific development field, such as mobile phone applications, accounting software, office suites or graphics software, and will have in-depth knowledge of at least one computer language which could be C,C++,Java etc.

Applications, or ‘apps’, can be written for a particular system, such as Windows or Android, or across numerous platforms, including computers and mobile devices.

Job titles and specific duties vary between organisations but the role usually involves writing specifications and designing, building, testing, implementing and sometimes supporting applications using programming languages and development tools.

2.Business Analytics

A business analyst may also be known as:

  • Business architect
  • Business systems analyst
  • Enterprise analyst
  • Management consultant
  • Process analyst
  • Product manager
  • Product owner
  • Requirements engineer
  • Systems analyst

If you enjoy evaluating and analysing data, creating solutions, communicating with a variety of people and have a good grasp of information technology, a career as a business analyst could be for you.

What exactly you need to do is…

You’ll need to understand the current organisational situation, identify future needs and create solutions to help meet those needs, usually (but not always) in relation to information and software systems.

3.Cloud Computing

Both cloud computing use and demand for people who can help with cloud migrations is a boom. There are about 100 jobs chasing each qualified candidate at this point in time, 

Companies that require specific cloud computing skills or development skills are typically already committed to a specific cloud provider, such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure or Google Cloud Platform.

While an IT admin needs to basic cloud architecture so he can work with any kind of cloud.Docker knowledge is a highly required skill, as most cloud providers adopt this container technology.

4.Content Management

Content management simply means running a website or a blog, or sometimes groups of websites or blogs.  Some work full time, in an office, others work part-time from home. The field is quite fluid, and rapidly growing.

Writing Skills

you must know good writing when you see it, and you must have your own ideas about the length, structure, and subject matter of the material appropriate for your site. If your text is not engaging, if it is too long, or strikes the wrong tone, visitors will not want to return

Social Media Skills

Much of your content will be marketed primarily through social media, so even if you are not the social media director, you should understand what types of articles are perceived as “shareable,” and likely to elicit engagement if posted as a link on any of the various social media platforms.


As a content manager, you’ll have access to a lot of information concerning how many people visit your sites and when and how they engage with your content. You have to be able to use that information to figure out what users like and why, so that you can make your content even more appealing in the future.

Insight on User Experiences

While the actual design of the website might be up to another member of the team, you will be in a better position than anyone else to understand the user experience and to make suggestions on how to improve that experience

5.Data Base Administrator

Database administrators are responsible for managing database security as well to ensure confidentiality, integrity and availability. A database administrator may manage small or large databases, but in either case he needs a basic set of skills, and for most companies a bachelor’s degree is the minimum educational requirement.

List of skills required to become database administrators are

  • Communication skills
  • Knowledge of database Queries
  • Knowledge of database theory
  • Knowledge of database design
  • Knowledge about the RDBMS itself, e.g. Microsoft SQL Server or MySQL
  • Knowledge of structured query language (SQL), e.g. SQL/PSM or Transact-SQL
  • General understanding of distributed computing architectures, e.g. Client–server model
  • General understanding of operating system, e.g. Windows or Linux
  • General understanding of storage technologies and networking
  • General understanding of routine maintenance, recovery, and handling failover of a database

6.Data Science Specialists (Analytics or Scientist)

 Data scientists are highly educated – 88% have at least a Master’s degree and 46% have PhDs – and while there are notable exceptions, a very strong educational background is usually required to develop the depth of knowledge necessary to be a data scientist. Their most common fields of study are Mathematics and Statistics (32%), followed by Computer Science (19%) and Engineering (16%).

Technical Skills: Computer Science

1.Python Coding – Python is the most common coding language I typically see required in data science jobs, along with Java, Perl, or C/C++.Other than Python you can learn R as well.

2.Hadoop Platform – Although this isn’t always a requirement, it is heavily preferred in many cases. Having experience with Hive or Pig is also a strong selling point. Familiarity with cloud tools such as Amazon can also be beneficial.

3.SQL Database/Coding – Even though NoSQL and Hadoop have become a large component of data science, it is still expected that a candidate will be able to write and execute complex queries in SQL.

4.Unstructured data – It is critical that a data scientist be able to work with unstructured data, whether it is from social media, video feeds or audio.

7.Full Stack Developer

Until about a few years ago, a well-planned and perfectly functional website required just two kinds of people to be up and running: a web designer and a web developer. a full stack developer as one who can work cross-functionally on the full “stack” of technology, i.e. both the front end and back end. For full stack development, you need to understand

1.Hosting systems (the computer; the OS; and supporting services like DNS, SSH, email, and Apache)

2.Application stack (web server like Apache or IIS; relational database like Oracle, MySQL, and PostgreSQL; and dynamic server-side web languages like Python, PHP, NodeJS, and Ruby)

3.Web applications (model view controller framework like Agavi, Django, and Turbine; object relational modeling like Propel, SQL Alchemy, and Torque; and models, views, application logic, and front-end development including audio, video, HTML, CSS, and JavaScript).

Over the past few years, the full stack has become “fuller.” In simpler times, a stack was rather straightforward and consisted of LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP) or MEAN (MongoDB, ExpressJS, AngularJS, and NodeJS). But with the advent of tooling, cloud services, design, data, and networking, full stack developers now have to deal with a whole new ball game.

8.Game Developer

Gaming programmers help write and code the software for video games. In your job, you’ll typically be part of a collaborative creative team that includes game designers and artists. Critical thinking, problem solving, quality control analysis, judgement, decision-making, operations analysis, systems evaluation, advanced computer skills with programming languages, especially C, C++, Perl, Assembly

12. Machine Learning

Machine Learning is usually associated with artificial intelligence(AI) that provides computers with the ability to do certain tasks, such as recognition, diagnosis, planning, robot control, prediction, etc., without being explicitly programmed. It focuses on the development of algorithms that can teach themselves to grow and change when exposed to new data.

In a way, the process of Machine Learning is similar to that of Data Mining. Both search through data to look for patterns. However, instead of extracting data for human comprehension — as is the case in data mining applications — machine learning uses that data to improve the program’s own understanding. Machine Learning programs detect patterns in data and adjust program actions accordingly.

Now, are you trying to understand some of the skills necessary to get a Machine Learning job? A good candidate should have a deep understanding of a broad set of algorithms and applied math, problem solving and analytical skills, probability and statistics and programming languages such as Python/C++/R/Java.

Beyond all, Machine Learning requires innate curiosity, so if you never lost the curiosity you had when you were a child, you’re a natural candidate for Machine Learning.
