More Than What You See on the Screen
Diverse, dynamic and fast-paced, the technology sector– From more traditional roles in coding and programming, to ones you might not think are technology-related at all such as jobs in communications, marketing, human resources and research development. Most companies these days have some sort of technology need. Simply put: the technology sector is BOOMING and looking for talent, NOW.

As the world becomes more and more dependent on technology, the industry continues to change and grow. Technology is no longer “just for nerds,” it could be just for you—here are some reasons to help you explore why:
VARIETY & DIVERSITY
From start-ups with big futures to large, multi-national corporations with thousands of employees dotted around the globe and everything in between, the technology industry has job types, products and services, workplaces and culture fits for everyone.
GROWTH & DEMAND
As the global economy depends more and more on technology, technology job opportunities increase. In the years since the recession, technology jobs came back twice as fast as jobs in other sectors.
The end of “office hours,” the ability to work from home wherever that may be, and office environments that encourage bean bags over cubicles, show that flexibility and technology go hand in hand.
Work in technology can be very meaningful, changing the way the world works by shaping how people communicate, share information, travel, or even order a delivery pizza.
Who Shines in Technology?
Are you innovative? Creative? Open to collaboration and constructive criticism? Are you a data-driven problem solver on a mission for efficiency (or maybe just the perfect plug-in?). A role in technology could be just what you need to succeed.
