The IT industry is considered to be the best paid industry in the labour market and it is by no means just an unfounded belief, but it is. The data clearly confirm that programmers, architects of IT systems or people involved in the creation of databases are qualified specialists, who not only have no problems with finding a job, but it is a well paid job and certainly can not complain about any problems with its conditions and the level of pay. In the future, there should be no changes in this field, and if they occur, it is only to the benefit of the employee himself. Experts expect that in the coming years the most popular will be experts in database development.
Programmers and other computer scientists
IT employees are people with very high specialist qualifications. In most cases, this means that you need to have a good field of study and at least one programming language. Of course, the educational requirements are different, but it doesn't happen that a person producing ROMs for washing machines or IT tools for companies is someone without IT studies.
Knowledge of SQL language is becoming more and more important on the labour market. It is a tool used to build databases, which today are becoming practically indispensable for all commercial entities and companies with at least medium scale operations. In manufacturing companies or large commercial entities it is simply impossible to operate without an ERP system supported by SQL databases. SAP consultants are usually one of the best paid IT specialists in companies, because it depends on them to a large extent on how effectively the ERP system will work and thus the entire company.
IT in the backroom
IT is a solution that in essence is not just a tool, but an element of other people's work ecosystem. It is the automation of work and support of work, so that the system also includes a human being. It is the man who has expectations towards an information system and the man who will work with it. Therefore, soft competences, i.e. the ability to cooperate with other people, are becoming more and more important in the IT area. For example, project coordinators who watch over the progress of work on solutions for companies and make sure that the tools created meet the needs they have identified at the client's site are valuable. For such a specialist are important soft skills, but without hard skills he is obviously not able to do anything about it.
A good example of the confusion between two worlds is the helpdesk staff. Their task is to support users in using IT tools and to provide feedback to the creators of such systems.
