Tech career top choice for workers in declining jobs looking to change careers
Recent research from Brighton-based professional training provider, Learning People, provides new insight into the perceptions of employees in job functions and sectors currently experiencing declining demand.
The survey involved 1,000 individuals working in traditional industries, from administrative roles to retail and agriculture to manufacturing. It explored their opinions on career prospects, their views on the tech world and if they had felt the decline first hand.
Key takeaways from the research:
• 22% of respondents agree that they have witnessed traditional roles being replaced with AI.
• Only half agree that there are strong opportunities for promotion in their industry.
• Over half agree that there is an increasing threat of redundancy.
• The first industry of choice for a career change is to enter the tech industry.
Based on these findings, Learning People has offered advice on some of the key soft skills that can be transferred to numerous different tech careers and information on the tech skills gap that currently exists, providing opportunity for those looking to switch careers. Find out more here.
