What employers want from an IT professional

    It is no secret that the majority of domestic IT specialists came to this sphere from other, related, and sometimes very remote, areas. And everything that they know and know how to do is acquired by them in short-term trainings, through self-education, or suffered through their own experience. Until recently, this state of affairs of all and, above all, employers were happy with. But in the last couple of years, the situation has changed dramatically. Today, companies are looking for other IT professionals. What exactly do employers want to get?

    First, companies need people who can not only cope with everyday problems, such as network administration, but also prevent new emergencies, propose and implement a network development plan, etc. In a word, specialists with a comprehensive understanding of IT.
    Secondly, employers want the specialist to have a good basic education directly in the field of IT. By the way, that is why today many classical universities, for example, Moscow State University offer additional education in the field of IT, create joint "long-playing" programs with various training centers.
    Thirdly, employers prefer certified professionals. If before the crisis, only 57% of the interviewed representatives of the HR community said that they pay attention to the availability of certificates from a specialist when hiring and when promoting a job. Today, this figure has increased to 66%.
    And this is understandable, the labor market is crowded, so why hire a specialist who can’t document his qualifications and does not regularly upgrade his professional level. And the lack of certificates, according to employers, speaks about this.
    And finally, employers want the IT specialist to be able to communicate with colleagues, enter professional communities and be aware of the latest events, new products, and changes in their field.
    In general, quite justified requirements. I hope that the IT specialists of our country correspond to them ...
