Time to Skill-up in AWS
Amazon Web Services (AWS) is the top public cloud service provider in the world right now and so it’s no surprise that AWS skills are in hot demand. If you’re skilled in AWS, you’ll have no shortage of opportunities to choose from as there are currently thousands of unfilled positions globally looking for your expertise.
Exciting prospects, great salaries and high enjoyment
If that hasn’t convinced you to skill-up with AWS, maybe the salaries will. Positions reach triple figures for highly skilled individuals in the UK. The money’s good, the prospects are great and the enjoyment factor is high too, with many in AWS roles reporting real interest and excitement in this new cloud technology.
Varied routes and roles
With jobs and responsibilities that span architecture, development, security, data and machine learning, there are many points of entry for tech professionals with a grounding in other complementary areas of IT.
Accessible, comprehensive training
AWS certifications are accessible and come highly prized by employers. With a comprehensive training programme, most professionals can gain skills in operations, development, architecting and big data, dependent on their area of interest and existing skillset. Providing you can put in the time in to learn, qualified professionals will have a distinct advantage over those who aren’t when applying for AWS jobs.
Transfer existing skills and build on them
When to comes to choosing the right AWS career path, it pays to follow one closest to your existing one to start. For example, if you currently work with databases, you’ll find it fairly easy to transfer those skills to AWS. Alternatively, look for a company that is planning on moving to AWS from servers you’re familiar with. Those companies will need expertise in the old and new servers, which is where you will find your entry point (providing you’ve learn about AWS sufficiently).
From that point, you’ll be able to build on your new skills and follow a more involved AWS career path as you go.
