Tech news, blog and careers advice

Different people think of career success in different ways, but ultimately the final destination is landing success. Getting a long-dreamt role is what few people take as success while few others love achieving work-life balance for turning to a successful career and the list continues. However, the desire to learn and grow should be the major aspect for everyone to ultimately succeed. It’s not so easy for anyone to achieve a career of their wants, but long standing and effortful prospects promote them to be perfect professionals. Here are tips for moving up in your career, irrespective of the sector or field you choose. Create a Digital Presence Try portraying a strong digital presence as an integral part of success. Surveys reveal most employers screen potential candidates by looking at their social profiles. And don’t get into surprise with the figures, almost 70% of the companies follow this policy. You may be a freelancer in any profession, why not display your work portfolio in detail, on social platforms such as Linkedin? As a fulltime employee, it’s not different and goes the same way of showcasing works related to different projects carried. Stand on Values Determining proper values comes on the front end, especially while performing IT Jobs. You also need to be able to recognize when your current position or company goes against them. You can’t be compromising on values or challenging them. It doesn’t matter while switching jobs or taking the leap of faith to become your own boss, but it’s important to understand your professional values. Always stay committed to sticking with them as your career evolves. Continue Networking You should be keen on developing a network with strong personalities in the market, while increasing knowledge on your domain. Networking may be intimidating for few but remember that it doesn’t have to be scary. You can grow your career successfully step by step, as you get to know people around you who can guide you better. For instance, if you are into Tech Jobs , you need to improve networking skills as a techie although your domain is different. Multiple skills do help hugely. Change Careers if required An average person changes careers three to seven times over the course of their professional lives, in developed nations like the USA. There’s nothing irrational if you make moves. However, it can also help you get from where you are to where you want to go. Careers switch may be across different fields, and it all matters on how passionate you are about the future role which is quite similar to relative. Most people are known to change professions if they are unlikely to work for a role they don't wish to have. Embrace Feedback A career is a constant learning experience, even when you feel like you’ve made it to the top. That’s because there is always room for improvement. Feedback isn’t a scary thing, as it just restricts someone's opinions or views. Our brain’s negativity bias can trick us into thinking feedback is a bad thing while constructive criticism is an inevitable part of anyone’s career. Instead of associating feedback with negativity, think of it as an investment in your growth and eventual professional success.
Computer software engineering is one of the reputed courses preferred across the globe and the next ultimate choice is to be a Software Engineer right from the start of their careers. With very minimal complications between academics and job, a Software Engineer has a great career. The number of Software Jobs has been growing, as the new technologies and programming languages are going up. So, let’s see how good it is to pursue a career as a Software Engineer. Software engineering career is well-determined You hold some dedicated tasks as you start your career as a Software Engineer. With some great efforts and achievements, you can rise to a much-deserved level within a short span. You have people of different origins joining the team while you can learn a lot from their skills. Collaboration across teams A programmer always sits in a room alone, coding all day. But this is quite a myth when you start working as a Software Engineer and face the reality.  Very few developers work alone, with an obligation for few projects that are critical to handle, including bank projects. In addition Tech Jobs need great communication and ability to work as a good team player. You will often need to work with different people across other teams to resolve issues occurring. So, as an Engineer, you will spend a lot of time collaborating with colleagues from multiple different departments. You find several opportunities A software engineering career is a right choice because the field is so broad. You can explore a variety of roles related to both computer applications and systems. While few may be interested in developing Web Pages   with coding, others may land their career in cyber security. The area or areas of interest as a software engineer may vary, but it’s ultimately the similar roles that many carry while working in this field. Most IT Jobs distinguish the employee’s designations with the experience they hold. For instance, with approximately 8-12 years, an employee may be designated as Senior Software Engineer. Project-based work structure One of the reasons to become a Software Engineer is project-based work structure which varies from company to company and project to project. Generally, most of them keep working on a huge variety of projects including small and large. However, there are so many advantages to this working style. Each new project with Project-based work brings a whole new set of challenges and gives you the opportunity to learn about new technologies, systems, and explore various parts of the business. Software engineers can get hikes faster If you consider all of the occupations and place them in a list of earnings, you’ll find that the median pay of a Software Engineer with lower years of experience is at a handsome pay scale. Besides, there's good scope for Web Developer Jobs too. Work and pay is good for both the designations. Software Engineer Jobs are one of the best paid jobs that can also witness a six-figure range within shorter periods in career. The minimum degree to become a Software Engineer is Bachelor of Science in Software Engineering or Bachelor of Technology in Computer Science.
School years are continuous for most people, while it takes into more pressure when you get into college or graduation with no breaks. Also, in most cases job entry happens soon after passing out with a degree from college or university. However a break can bring fresh enthusiasm before launching yourself into a first job, after graduation. You’ve spent the majority of your life in classrooms up to this point and probably haven’t seen as much of the world as you’d like. You also get moral support for your choice to take a gap year or extended break. Some may fear that if you don’t go straight into the next stage of education or work, you’ll lose the mind-set of a hard worker. The false misconceptions may however drag you into a world that can’t be enjoyed after getting into a job. You will have to fundraise and work before you travel in order to save some money. You’ll need to be self-motivated, organized and capable of sorting out problems. In this article, here are the top three reasons to take a gap year before a great career move. 1. You can learn different cultures Explore different communities, people, diversities, and regional factors to get the chance and change your outlook on the world. Give a try by visiting another country that you have never been to and immerse yourself in the lifestyle. You can learn the way how people behave, the culture, the hopes, and concerns for the future. You can now be a better estimator of life, when tackling issues in the future, or how to mingle with society when it comes to your part in it. This kind of knowledge can help inform what you decide to do with your life. You may be moved to make a difference in some way by working for a charitable organisation, or perhaps a social enterprise, or technology company. A good understanding of different cultures can help your deal with customers, clients and colleagues in the workplace. Instead of taking several trips to several different places, you may decide to spend an extended period of time in one country, trying to learn their language. 2. Think broad Just think of a precious gap year that should be of total fun. Of course, you not only want to be thinking about future studies and careers. Most people love to travel during their gap year and everyone will be constrained to some factors. Few among the constraints are- about how much you want to spend, how long and where to go. The best part about volunteering or gaining work experience is that you can do something to fulfil a dream, especially with a career in IT Jobs . Your choice of future career will help learn skills and develop knowledge that will benefit when you return home. Yes, you have the freedom of knowing anything entirely related to your choice and your contribution will be valued because of that. 3. You are the final decision-maker Most people, who get into careers soon after grabbing a degree, later regret the decision of stepping into a particular career. This may happen in a short while or after entering the 40+, but the whole lot hard work goes in vain, if that’s the case. It’s hard for many to make a decision while at school or college. Just because they are focusing so much on doing well in everything, they have very less time to think about the future. Tech Jobs can be much complicated while performing, without any interest. So, it’s always keen to have a specific program in a specific college decided on and applied for before you get your exam results. A gap break provides a chance to let thoughts and learning settle so a plan for the future can evolve.
Work that you love doing allows promoting career management better, while you expect to gain maximum success and happiness. The most productive 40 hours a week for the whole adult life and managing your career effectively can develop your talents and skills. The IT Job Board will help explore your world and enable more of your unique contributions to make your career successful. Most employees don’t think about their current job and the next promotion that they are fit to receive. However, it’s always important to broaden short-term thinking. The promotions of employees while on the organization charts, there’s very little scope for job searchers outside. This is the right time to grow skills and experience for people obtaining value to their career. Below are the few important tips to try in improving IT career: Broaden and deepen your experience and let not your career get stuck in a single nutshell. Adding additional responsibilities voluntarily, after the acceptance of higher officials can help you learn more. Develop skills by learning from other employees in your company and try understanding about different IT Jobs. This adds value while learning different skills and improves your areas of expertise. Additional classes and training sessions outside the office premises can increase your knowledge. IT careers keep advancing with new technologies evolving such as Artificial Intelligence, Robotic Process Automation, Edge Computing, Quantum Computing, Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality, Blockchain, Internet of Things (IoT), 5G, Cyber Security and keeping up with the trend. A mentor from a different department can be the best guide for your career path. Learning from someone is a great way to gain knowledge and allow you to open to other possible opportunities. Share terminology, concepts, and team-building with coworkers. Also, hold book clubs at work to develop knowledge. Career Growth and Development in IT Here are five additional career management strategies that help you improve in IT industry: Develop a timeline Set milestones in your career while bringing your boss and their sponsorship. This along with mentoring from a superior will ensure that you have an internal mentor who can stand by your career. Create a plan to achieve goals Gain career development and management for momentum, with the timeframes you have. Most successful and satisfied people in Tech Jobs are the ones who have proactively determined what they want from work. Utilize company programs There are lots of internal programs from some IT companies that help motivate career development. Why not give it a try and learn new skills for free. These programs generally focus on helping employees develop and follow a career path, and you need to be a part of it. Make the right choices You cannot go for something that’s completely different and out of your field. Career paths are recommended for the same reason that goals are recommended. So, have a proper plan in opting for shifting careers that are much closer to your expertise, so that you get used to it faster. Own your career path Discussions of career options are open in some companies with your boss at the bi-annual meetings. Some companies demonstrate a deep commitment to their employees by assisting where it is possible with resources along the time.
It was late March 2020 when the COVID-19 pandemic forced millions of people to start work from home. But, the circumstances are slowly transforming, with employees being asked to get back to office for work. Unfortunately, it was an unprecedented amount of adaptation for both businesses and employees which made them stay back at home and work. Now few companies are welcoming their teams back into the office, and it’s the time for you to prepare for this. There might be slight anxiousness about going back to the office after working from home for months. However, that doesn’t mean you should be unprepared. In order to manage any change effectively, you need to arm yourself with a plan while also remaining flexible. The IT Jobs Board provides the five ways to sync and navigate to things like the returning of face-to-face meetings, daily commutes, avoiding distractions, feeling the responsibilities, and knowing about each other. Set weekly meetings with your manager If you are planning about staying on top of your responsibilities, set time with your manager every week to review your current progress on a micro and macro level.  You’ll get to touch base about all of the projects you’re working on. Also have a scheduled time to take a break from the day-to-day to refocus which is always a good idea. It’s an easy way to be proactive, and your manager will thank you for it. Keep up a good rapo with the manager, to stay updated with all the work related activities. Commute benefits Many think that commute is one of the most difficult parts of returning to the office. False, the trips are real relaxation for you, when provided with office commute. Lay back and put on some peaceful music to enjoy after work. You can also listen to a business-focused podcast, use audio resources to learn a language or call an old coworker you haven’t spoken with in a while. There are plenty of ways you can utilize your time. Avoid distractions If you are working for a company, working by yourself in a private space is one thing. However, it completely changes when you are working in an open-floor office plan which is something else altogether. So, get rid of as many distractions as you can. It is possible when you put your phone on silent; wear noise-cancelling headphones, etc. This allows you to focus on what you need to. Also, remember that it’s okay to ask for space from coworkers when you need it. If you’re in the middle of an important project and somebody comes in to have a word casually, it’s not rude to ask them to come back when you’re less occupied. Feel the responsibilities Once you’re back in the office, you’ll eventually find out what time management system works best for you. Until then take note all of your tasks, meetings and other responsibilities in one document so you know what you’re supposed to do when. Get to know your co-workers Virtual and in-person relationships require different kinds of upkeep. You will find your co-workers every day, so get to know them a little better. Have lunch with them, or see if they’d like to get coffee during their afternoon slump.

The web is a boundless collection of text, images and graphical content that is interacted by the lens, retina and optic nerve and transmitted to the brain that creates visualisation. But, for the millions of blind users around the world, the most common way to access the web is through screen reader software. Screen reader software is capable of interpreting HTML coding and converting the onscreen text into audible output that is read aloud in a sequential manner. Unfortunately, there are many websites that are inaccessible to blind users and these include online employment Web sites and thus preventing these individuals from even applying for jobs online. Employment is a core ingredient for self-esteem and independence and utilising the value of gained knowledge through education should be harnessed without any boundaries. Journal of usability studies conducted a research on job applications for IT Job Boards and this highlighted the design problems that are associated with layout, navigational issues between the input fields as well as the inability to identify the form they are completing. There are industry accepted usability and accessibility (WGAC 2.0) standards that practitioners have to follow when creating dual graphical interfaces. An online sector analysis conducted in 2004 reveals that 80% of the websites fail to meet the requirements of accessibility for blind users. A more recent study conducted on Google search engine’s accessibility and usability issues delve deeper in to the form validation issues and screen reader’s lack of functionality with the description of input fields. When a blind user searches for information with regards to IT Jobs or articles on Google’s search engine, there is a roadblock exhibited by the screen reader software. The audio is output in a sequential manner from the webpage, so it enlists the menu navigational links as well as other advertisements that coincide with the search results for similar IT related articles . This creates cognitive overload for the blind users and thus creating confusion when trying to identify the most relevant information. Form validation is a big issue for blind users when it is not specified through audible feedback and this problem is exhibited by Google’s search engine interface, due to its inability to correct user errors in input fields. This was also unveiled in the job application study such that coincides with the data entry problems when filling in the form for applying for various jobs online. A common misconception is that web usability and accessibility issues arise from the graphical user interface (GUI). The opinion of practitioners is based on the idea of graphical content not being recognisable by screen readers, therefore fails to convey the graphical elements to a blind user. There are improved guidelines from the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) to help the designers to demonstrate better practices in designing accessible and usable Job Boards and search engines for visually impaired users. Furthermore, it would also be of vital importance to involve testing of form based interfaces that determine task adequacy, behaviour equivalence, device independence and semantic loss avoidance for individual webpages.

In 2017 cyber security salaries will soar higher than any other tech specialty , and the profession is growing at a terrific rate.  There has never been a better time to transition into a cyber-security career. IT professionals already have a huge advantage, with a ready-made CV of relevant experience and transferable skills. And, the ‘transitioning’ process is now faster than ever. This year, we are launching the UK’s first Government-backed SANS ‘Cyber Retraining Academy’ , with training content certified by intelligence agency GCHQ, for people who have never worked in cyber security jobs . It is a completely free, intensive training programme dedicated to taking people with no cyber qualifications or experience and turning them into qualified, entry level professionals in just 10 weeks.   Graduates could then secure roles with some of Britain’s biggest employers .  Those who have completed the 2015 SANS’ UK Cyber Academy have since been snapped up by some of the biggest names in the industry and offered exciting security roles. The ‘Retraining Academy’ application process uses aptitude tests, including a multiple-choice questionnaire, to look for hidden traits gauging the propensity for success in cyber, from puzzle-solving to determination. For those who qualify, the intensive course includes academic study for leading GIAC certifications and practical ‘hands-on’ work in high-pressure, real-world scenarios. Candidates will be tasked with preventing a national virus outbreak and their ability to hack into IOT devices such as unmanned aircraft. A live ‘portal’ will enable prospective employers to track candidates progress through the course in real-time, so that successful candidates could receive a job offer the moment they graduate. The ‘Cyber Retraining Academy’ is completely free and those who are selected to take part will start on January 23 rd 2017. So do you think you have what it takes to be a cyber-warrior, and defend Britain online? Why not try our free aptitude test and see if you could make it through?
