I have added an interesting article entitled “App development, engineering skills in demand” to the ‘Articles of interest’ folder in the shared resources.
“Skilled graduates are needed to meet the insatiable need for app development. Graduates with app development and engineering skills are in demand and more likely to enter SA’s workforce.
This is according Nqobile Dlamini, citizenship lead at Microsoft South Africa, who says companies want to employ young graduates with app development skills that can be used to solve local challenges.
Microsoft’s partners and customers are looking for graduates with a vast range of skills but at this point app development and engineering are the key skills employers want, she notes. These are the key skills that are very important in the technology sector, Dlamini explains.”
It’s good to share with your IT students to show them that their skills can actually be very useful after school and incentivise them to pursue excellence in their IT path in school.
