Once again, tech jobs dominate Glassdoor’s list of the 50 best jobs in America.
But, it turns out, you don’t have to work in the tech industry to have one of the best tech jobs this year.
As Dr. Andrew Chamberlain, Glassdoor’s chief economist, tells Business Insider, companies across all industries, including healthcare, finance, and retail, are hiring workers for these needed positions. “Any organization today with a mobile app, web presence, or digitized data are struggling to fill jobs like data scientists, software engineers, and mobile developers,” Chamberlain says.
In every industry, there are at least a handful of experts considered authorities on the subject. Most have a blog or website, making them the premier trusted resources industry-wide. Likewise, you’ll usually find a community or two where all the professionals immersed in the field turn to when they need to converse with like-minded professionals.
The same holds true in the world of development. Developers are such a quirky bunch that no ordinary website will do, so we’ve put together this collection of must-visit websites that cater to developer needs to stay on top of the latest in tech news, network and discuss projects and troubleshooting with your peers, sites for beginners to master programming, and, of course, a few fun sites to visit when you need a break from your latest development project.
Want to be practically guaranteed a job in today’s competitive market? Consider pursuing one of these careers where the demand for employees is outweighing the supply.
