The digital skills gap
Even before Covid-19 arrived, the demand for developers was huge. In Europe, the prediction was that there would be a need for more than 700,000 extra digitally skilled workers by the year 2020. Well, we’re well beyond 2020 now. A recent report from the World Economic Forum – which was created in October 2020 – suggests that by 2025, 85 million current roles will be displaced because of automation and technology. However, herein lies the extra opportunity for career changers. The WEF predicts that these roles will be replaced by 97 million more-technology focused roles.
Is it time for a career change?
