There’s No Such Thing as a Job in IoT

The terms IoT, smart technology and connectivity have become the big buzzwords of 2016 – and rightly so: By 2020, it’s expected that there will be 21 billion connected devices, and over half of businesses will incorporate some element of IoT.


But, with this explosion of new technology has come a wave of misunderstanding when it comes to recruitment.  It simply isn’t as straightforward as referring to IoT as a required skill or sector.

While I sit here on a runway in Vienna waiting for my delayed plane to take off, I’ve been thinking back over this year’s EAGE exhibition that I’ve just attended.  As I sip my wine and ease my aching feet from walking many miles of this major conference, here are my observations of what is called the ‘largest Geoscience event in the world!’.


If you didn’t get a chance to go to EAGE 2016 and are wondering what on earth is happening in the G&G sector at the moment (and if anyone is hiring at all), this may answer a few questions.
