Today almost every industry has an online presence, deals with digitised data, uses social media or has an App to generate revenue. They require people who can help support these functions, have the know-how to navigate the digital space and effectively market products and services across multiple digital platforms.
Cyber Security
Living in a technologically-advanced world, most businesses take for granted such things as easy online document sharing, email that is available on every device, and databases accessible from everywhere. The rise in the widespread use of technology has brought with it a rise in cybercrime. There have been so many hacks and data breaches where top brands and organisations have been affected. The future skillsets require learning ways to protect data, systems and networks from hackers, viruses and malware.
The above STEM-Business fields command impressive salaries ranging from $80,000 to over $120,000 per annum and offer career stability, longevity, growth, and the demand of these fields in the current and future organisations have created a huge requirement for qualified and skilled professionals.
