Good Comments. I totally agree with your E14 assessment. I can apply for all 10k jobs. And do exactly what’s needed. I like your webinars. I will try to attend. But will these jobs pay what an experienced engineer’s salary is? Just me be skeptical. I’ll do the IoT thing for fun. Because I like it!
Asking myself the same. I'll put aside my bothering with hypes ... as I still see the IoT field and I'll learn it.
I'll stop seen marketing people and learn from the professionals.
10,000+ IoT jobs---can you believe that?
Are any of them near Comox though?
Experience with prototyping platforms (e.g. Arduino, Raspberry PI), sensors and electronics
That's pretty cool isn't it? The stuff we do for fun does serve some pretty amazing real life purposes!
10,000+ IoT jobs---can you believe that? That's not my number; I found it on Google as I was researching an article for element14. And Google, of course, pointed me to none other than LinkedIn.
10,000 of any kind of jobs is a lot of jobs.
Hmm...my first thought was: why aren't they filled?
Made me curious.
I scrolled through some of them: solution architects, node.js, IoT data engineers, NB-IoT program managers, field engineers, cloud consultants, ASIC/MEMS engineers--- the list of jobs were endless. It would take me weeks to read all of them. I peeked into one of them for an IoT Consultant. It said:
Preferred Additional Skills
- Experience with requirements engineering, project management, and technical documentation
- Experience with prototyping platforms (e.g. Arduino, Raspberry PI), sensors and electronics
- Be comfortable presenting technical topics
LOL. (Excuse my outburst.) But that sounds like a lot of element14 members!
Well, here's what I think: there are plenty of opportunities out there for tech people in IoT. If you want to really take advantage of them, then join me on October 10th as I host element14's first IoT Careers Webinar:
I will be discussing IoT Careers, Skills and Opportunities with two leading companies in this space: Microchip Corporation and The Things Network.
Hope to See you there!
