Heading into 2022, the information technology (IT) industry is in a new age. Yes, there is still much unpredictability because of COVID-19 and government responses to it, but thanks to the power of technology, more employees in our history have been working from home.

Professional organizations and research studies point to the global revenue for the IT industry to be around $5 trillion, with annual growth continuing to be around 5% for years to come. In North America, 40% of the world’s packaged and custom software solutions employ about 2 million bachelor-degreed employees. These highly educated employees are often responsible for innovation, which is central to IT Software & Services development, and leads to new products, ideas, and more innovation, so job growth continues to expand.
In fact, job opportunities related to IT Software are expected to grow at a higher rate than the average for all other occupations. The hottest sectors of the industry for 2021 will be cybersecurity, cloud computing, and networking. Not surprisingly, many of tomorrow’s jobs don’t even exist today.

WorldBridge is continuously growing and optimizing our top talent networks within the ever-evolving IT Software & Services space.
