Ca­reer op­tions for the tech­nol­ogy-ob­sessed

Kuwait Times - - BUSINESS -

In this day and age, tech­nol­ogy is em­bed­ded in our ev­ery­day life. The in­ter­net has be­come a life ne­ces­sity and not just for en­ter­tain­ment. Most work tasks have be­come dig­i­tized. Smart­phones have be­come in­dis­pens­able. So un­less you’re spend­ing the en­tire day do­ing ab­so­lutely noth­ing, it’s kind of im­pos­si­ble to avoid tech­nol­ogy.

While most of us can­not deny the role of tech­nol­ogy in ev­ery lit­tle task that we un­der­take, some of us look at tech­nol­ogy with goo­gly eyes. Those of us who have a great affin­ity for tech­nol­ogy im­merse them­selves in that world, fol­low­ing all news of tech­nol­ogy ad­vance­ments no mat­ter what field it is con­nected to. Whether it’s a med­i­cal ad­vance­ment or a con­sumer prod­uct launch, tech-fans are al­ways keen to find new ways to uti­lize tech­nol­ogy for im­prov­ing the life of the av­er­age per­son. For those who are ob­sessed with tech­nol­ogy and want to pur­sue IT ca­reers, we have com­piled a list of jobs that are avail­able on Bayt.com, the Mid­dle East’s #1 Job Site, and will sat­isfy your love for ev­ery­thing tech-based.

1. App De­vel­oper

When was the last time you met some­one who does not carry a smart­phone? You prob­a­bly will re­mem­ber them well, as such peo­ple are now con­sid­ered the rar­ity. The world of smart­phones has cre­ated its own plat­form for apps to flour­ish, and many com­pa­nies are jump­ing on this wagon. This means that the need for app de­vel­op­ers is sky­rock­et­ing. If you’re into mak­ing mo­bile ex­pe­ri­ences, this is the path you should be go­ing for.

2. Se­cu­rity En­gi­neer

Just be­cause time has pro­gressed doesn’t mean that the cy­ber world has be­come safer. In fact, ever since the world had be­come in­ter­con­nected, hack­ers have had “eas­ier” ac­cess to sen­si­tive in­for­ma­tion. And since ev­ery­thing is becoming dig­i­tal and the amount of data that is gen­er­ated and placed on­line is enor­mous, the main con­cern of any com­pany has be­come the se­cu­rity of its in­for­ma­tion. If you’re in­trigued not only by tech­nol­ogy but also by data se­cu­rity, then be­ing a se­cu­rity en­gi­neer might be right up your al­ley!

3. Le­gal IT Man­ager

The fact that tech­nol­ogy has in­fil­trated our lives in ev­ery sin­gle as­pect means that IT com­pa­nies ex­ist in abun­dance. What those com­pa­nies need nowa­days is le­gal ad­vice from law firms that are spe­cial­ized in the IT field. Think, for in­stance, about the new stream­ing plat­forms that have con­trib­uted to a whole new ex­pe­ri­ence for lis­ten­ing and watch­ing all kinds of movies, TV shows, etc. Such ser­vice providers are of­ten bat­tling copy-right and fair use is­sues that they must over­come. This is where you can com­bine your pas­sion for law and IT in the same place.

4. UI/UX De­signer

The great thing about mod­ern jobs is that they blur the lines be­tween dif­fer­ent fields and can com­bine your skills and passions no mat­ter how di­verse they may be. UI/UX de­sign­ers are the per­fect ex­am­ple of that. It is im­pos­si­ble to cat­e­go­rize such job as pure IT or pure de­sign. It’s a mix­ture of both, and it doesn’t work any other way. If you’re ob­sessed with IT and have de­sign sen­si­bil­i­ties, then this is what you’ve been look­ing for.

5. Pro­gram­mer

Do you like lan­guages? What about com­puter lan­guages? Good, be­cause work­ing as a pro­gram­mer al­lows you to speak those lat­ter lan­guages flu­ently. The scope of work is huge, which means which­ever project you take on can pro­vide its own ex­cit­ing ex­pe­ri­ence and chal­lenges to over­come. Be­ing a pro­gram­mer is kind of like be­ing in your own lit­tle world of cre­at­ing new things us­ing a se­cret lan­guage that not ev­ery­one is flu­ent at. If this sounds ap­peal­ing to you then you have stum­bled upon your ca­reer path.

6. Qual­ity As­sur­ance

Work­ing in qual­ity as­sur­ance needs per­fec­tion­ists who are able to nit­pick ev­ery small de­tail and have an eye for any­thing that seems off. This is vi­tal for any prod­uct or ser­vice to cre­ate the best ex­pe­ri­ence pos­si­ble. Again, this is a job that will re­quire more than a love for tech­nol­ogy. You will be able to mold a far­reach­ing ex­pe­ri­ence and an im­pres­sive list of skills if this is the job you de­cide to pur­sue. Of course, there are many more jobs that are re­lated to tech­nol­ogy. In a sense, nearly ev­ery job that is cre­ated to­day ties to tech­nol­ogy in one way or an­other. Check out over 10,000 jobs that are avail­able on Bayt.com and find your per­fect ca­reer op­tion. — Cour­tesy Bayt.com
