Online Courses That Can Prepare You for a Career in the IT Field

Online Courses That Can Prepare You for a Career in the IT Field
Posted By: Anita Ginsburg on August 26, 2020

IT is booming with new employment opportunities, with jobs in the industry expected to increase. Going by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) figures, the projection is a 21% increase in software developer jobs and a 13% increase in web developer jobs between 2018 and 2028, both of which are much higher than average.

The fact that salaries in IT-related occupations are growing faster compared to other professions predicts job security for the future, and is a good reason to pursue an IT-related course. With a wide variety of IT disciplines to learn, online courses can prepare you for a career in the IT field.

Data Science Course
This course equips students with the skills to analyze data. The expertise it provides applies to almost all industries, from small firms to large corporations. Professionals with as little as three years of experience can earn a very comfortable salary. Data science is, without a doubt, one of the best IT courses to take.

Software Development Course
The course is ideal for students who wish to gain skills in programming languages. After taking it, students can major in either application or system.



The course is dynamic and may be necessary for job seekers that want to develop operating systems, networking software, or mobile apps. Professionals in this field can pocket over more than $100,000 annually.

Online Web Design Courses
Online web design courses put students on the right track to job opportunities involving crafting web pages. Some of the areas they teach are HTML5, CSS, and JavaScript. However, web design courses may also touch on the backend. Students can study web frameworks and powerful Content Management Systems (CMS) that help create easy-to-maintain websites quickly.

Cybersecurity Course
If you wish to get a job in cyber-threat detection and prevention, you’ll want to look into cybersecurity courses. After taking cybersecurity courses, a student can keep operating systems and computer networks secure. Additionally, a successful student will have the necessary skills to secure data. With businesses taking most of their activities online, the future demand for cybersecurity professionals is bright.

With so many slots for new professionals in the computer industry, you can never go wrong with an IT course. The Information Technology world is vast. It constantly requires fresh talent to carry on the task of solving some of the world's most important problems.
