According to The Ministry of Science and Higher Education during the next 15 years, IT specialists – among other technical professions, will be in highest demand; they note one of the highest employment factors – 78 per cent of them work in their profession. Which branches of the economy need them the most?
Demand for IT specialists can also be observed outside the most dedicated industries: information and telecommunication. Other branches implement information technologies (to various degrees) and need the support of qualified IT employees. The biggest employers come from: wholesale, industrial processing and retail.
It is no surprise that most specialists choose leading companies or companies from the IT industry – these companies often guarantee development. However, these are not the only industries that hire IT specialists – candidates should have an open mind and be aware that jobs for specialists also await them in companies from other industries in which IT departments are crucial for a flawless operation. Reality forces enterprises to use the latest technologies and this directly translates into demand for experts. Very good prospects can be found for instance, in the insurance industry, in which more than three quarters of companies employ IT specialists – says Marta Zerka.

IT job openings can also be found in the printing industry, in which 81 out of 120 companies need the support of IT professionals. Companies from the banking, media and science-research industries are also worthy of attention since job offers can be found in a quarter of them.
