Retraining and Covid-19 – Umschulung in Zeiten von Corona
The interest in retraining – or Umschulung in German – and the associated Jobwechsel, career change, is growing, especially since the Coronavirus has impacted our places of work. Many industries are severely affected and react with so-called Kurzarbeit or layoffs. However, this does not apply to the IT industry – der IT-Branche , quite the contrary, software developers are in high demand and continue to be hired.
Working from home – Home Offices
There is also a rethinking around working remotely. The pandemic has proven that it works, especially in the area of IT. Tech companies such as Facebook and Twitter want their employees to decide whether and how much they work from home, in their so-called Home Offices, even after Covid-measures have been lifted. That means more flexibility, and less time spent on the commute.
Skills shortage in IT – Fachkräftemangel in der IT
In a world that is becoming increasingly digital, in which video conferencing is becoming the new normal, companies have to react – and invest in their own IT. That requires qualified employees – Fachkräfte. In Germany, more than 100,000 IT jobs are vacant (according to Bitkom) and there is a particular shortage of Software Entwickler and Programmierer.
The projected future growth for jobs in web development is 12% by 2022, 24% for software development by 2026, and 11% for data administration, according to thebalancecareers.com.
