When there are discrepancies apparent in some specific employment data, it is important to take a step back and question the validity of the stats and assumptions. The academic college system is one of the world’s strongest systems for creating and reinforcing false statistics. People seek statistics to confirm their own beliefs.
Software Engineering Used to Depend on Education and Vocational Skills
Some people fear the instability of careers in computer science. Why? Why do some jobs require such technical skills? It is true, education and professional skills do increase one’s chances of being employed as a software engineer. However, there are many fields with similar requirements, such as web development, which just by the way serves as perhaps the most highly demonstrative example of the #TheFutureOfCode.
At surface-level, some fields such as web development are highly dependent on technical skills and without such skills, individuals cannot be employed. Similarly, some people say they cannot go into the tech industry because of their lack of the aforementioned technical skills.
However, the rapid development in the no-code approach to building and maintaining workplace systems infrastructure can be beneficial for businesses in that software engineering objectives can be achieved without the traditional technical skills associated with coding. If those who are afraid to go into the computer science industry are afraid to adapt to the new technical skills required, they’re clearly part of that group of people who aren’t aware of the emergence of this no-code development.
That is also the nature of jobs that people often fear. Everyone fears the unknown, especially in their careers. No matter how good a job is, someone will always complain about the lack of experience or cite something like the unpleasant work environment.
That is why some people don’t want to learn new things and pursue new careers, when they should rather be embracing the changes that will form part of the basic skill set required just to stay relevant in the quintessential, modern day work environment.
