As the new year unfolds, we see job positions that are very uncommon as the most sought out positions by companies. Fresh graduates tend to get confused on how many job positions there are, and they don’t know if their skills will match. Students who are about to graduate high school are not sure about the major they should take in college because they don’t know what the industries will be looking for when they graduate.

In this digital era, it’s not a surprise that the internet will be taking over the internet as well. Businesses are looking for new and trendy ways to market their products and services, and one of their ways is to create an existence in the world wide web. Almost all brands have their own website, and it can’t just be a regular site with their catalog on it. This is where graphic design comes in. Graphic designers can create more than just fancy looking websites, they can also create other promotional tools such as posters, animated videos, etc. They are the new force of advertising, and this is why companies want to hire them.

With everything being behind computers, phones and gadgets, information technology related positions continue to expand. The most sought out positions include front-end and back-end developers, programmers, and user interface or user experience researchers. All of these positions require you to have a strong background in IT, you’ll have to master the basic computer languages such as JAVA and C, and you’ll also have to know how to code. Seeing computer data should be your everyday sight, and companies are racing to find the best computer savvies.

Social media manager

As business have websites, they now also need to have social media platforms. Updating your company’s activities can attract more customers since potential customers usually want to ‘stalk’ the brand before deciding whether or not they should be a customer. Social media can be utilized for marketing and for recruiting, basically for nearly anything. This is why being a social media manager is considered a trendy position now, because niche businesses such as, let’s say, law firms even have social media platforms, and they need someone to operate these platforms.
