The impact of the
COVID-19 pandemic on
economies and corporations has been dramatic, to say the least. Countries
around the world have been forced to grapple with enormous change and adjust to
the new normal of remote working, and the increasing use of digital technology.
As we move into the post-pandemic world, professionals will have to be more
self-reliant and flexible – and seek out the most in-demand roles to future proof their careers. Before the outbreak, the
job market was still highly competitive and ever-evolving, but with the
pandemic disrupting the landscape, certain roles will grow faster than others.
Therefore, it’s time to take a look at the jobs with the highest demand, to
help talent leaders and candidates make better decisions post-pandemic.
is one of the most in-demand roles in technology. Over the years, cybersecurity job
postings have increased
dramatically and with the pandemic forcing many companies to adopt a remote
working culture, this has posed new security challenges. Research has shown
that the number of cyber-attacks in
Switzerland during the
height of the pandemic was up three times more than normal. Since there are
more people now working from home, there’s more data available in the cloud,
which means many companies are more vulnerable to attacks. In early 2021,
many security bodies in Switzerland were targeted by malicious
email that appeared to come from trusted organisations, like the police and
banks, further exemplifying that cybersecurity risks have become a huge
problem. Therefore, cybersecurity experts will be hugely in-demand and these
professionals can look forward to many opportunities in the field.

Research has shown
that by 2025, 97 million new
roles will emerge, most of which will be driven by automation and data. In a
post-pandemic world, there’s no doubt that businesses will continue to rely on
advanced technology to understand the origin of different data sets. This means
that data analysts will be highly sought after over the next few years. With
more people working remotely and with more technology-based roles on the
horizon, the amount of data generated is only going to increase. All of this
data needs to be managed and analysed to understand correlations, and to draw
meaningful conclusions. Big data is everywhere now and the pandemic has
accelerated this shift toward machine learning and smart communication.
no secret that Switzerland’s technology scene has become one of the most
advanced in Europe,
with Zurich standing
up as a powerhouse for the country’s digital technology. There’s a great demand
for software developers with growing numbers in Switzerland, and research has
shown that there was over 155,700 registered
software developers in 2019,
a figure which has likely grown since. Companies will increasingly need
software developers to build the digital infrastructure for their projects in
the post-pandemic world. Also, artificial intelligence investment increased
during the pandemic, with more companies implementing AI into their products
and processes. This means that businesses will need developers with AI skills
and experience. And with more people spending time online, the role of
developers has become even more crucial for a wide range of businesses.
