Over 14 lakh new IT jobs will be created by 2027.

Hyderabad: Students with certification in new emerging domains like artificial intelligence, data science, big data analytics, mobile app development, cloud computing and internet of things (IoT) are all set to land jobs much easier.

According to a recent Cisco study, domains like artificial intelligence, data science, big data analytics, mobile app development, cloud computing and internet of things (IoT) are fast growing within the information technology ecosystem and there is a huge demand for professionals with relevant skills in these areas.

Nearly 89 per cent of hiring managers reported a higher level of trust on candidates having certifications, while 88 per cent of customers reported an improvement in the levels of services and support to end users, according to the study.

Over 14 lakh new jobs will be created in emerging technologies such as cybersecurity, IoT and big data in the country by 2027, the report said.

The findings reveal that jobs like social media administrator, machine learning designer and IoT designer were among the most that will be in demand in the years to come.

“Recruiters in the future will primarily look for skills related to artificial intelligence, robotics, big data, automation and analytics as these areas are expected to face the maximum shortage of skilled candidates. Given the pace at which the demand for these technologies has increased, it is extremely likely that they will be soon made available with ‘as a service’ models,” Zairus Master, CEO, Shine.com said.

This apart, Artificial Intelligence was likely to make an entry to the HR industry soon.
“AI is soon to make its place in the HR industry. A far cry from the traditional method of scanning resumes, arranging interviews, and taking weeks together to finalize a candidate, the use of smart systems drastically cuts the time to hire. The use of algorithms and data-driven insights also helps reduce biased hires by solely focusing on candidates’ skills,” Master said.
