The Covid-19 pandemic has changed both the social patterns in everyday lives and the work patterns in the business sector. Changes have occurred in, among others, interactions among companies, production processes, and product marketing methods.
This is also the case for individuals and the society. Social activities, works, consumptions, and other aspects have also changed with the adoption of digital technology. As a result, the IT sector has opened up as many new job opportunities as possible.
Data from the Ministry of Manpower of the Republic of Indonesia shows that the information and communication technology sector requires at least 1.23 million workers in 2022. In the next three years (2023, 2024, and 2025), this sector will require 1.49 million, 1.75 million, and 1.98 million workers, respectively.
It is both good news and an opportunity for those wanting to pursue a career in IT, which, of course, offers a promising salary. It should be understood, however, that it takes more than being well-educated and skillful for you to have a successful career in this sector.
The following are some things you should pay attention to—or, better yet, do—to develop yourself:
First, have a good mindset and attitude. At work, it is crucial to have good manners when interacting with others, be collaborative, and be respectful towards each other.
A strong commitment to supporting your employer’s growth and your personal development is the attitude and mindset that you have to develop. Without one, you won’t have a future orientation, and your job will be just a routine.
Second, cultivate a professional attitude towards solving problems in a task assigned to you. Your professionalism can be identified from how you work and conduct following the workplace rules.
Third, display a willingness to constantly learn, gain knowledge, and acquire skills. Formal education is not the only means of obtaining new knowledge and skills. You can also learn them by yourself as you work or perform your daily activities.
You should consistently demonstrate a willingness to learn to keep up with the rapid technological development. As users of technology, humans should also quickly adapt to their dynamic needs and lives.
Never feel complacent and satisfied after graduating from a famous university with an IT degree, even if you have good grades, because technological changes can go beyond the theories you have studied.
If you think you meet the above requirements and demands, the opportunity to join a well-known company will be wide open for you. Among the reputable companies that offer a great career opportunity in IT is PT Serasi Autoraya, commonly known as SERA.
