It’s 2022 and it’s no doubt that IT has become a prominent core for almost all businesses out there; from small businesses to global companies. We can no longer deny that we are living in an ever-growing technological development that will continue to grow in more years to come.



As each year passes, you can see how technology advancement has taken its place in this world and how it developed its way into society. 

In fact, you can even expect more to come. This is all thanks to the development of IT. That’s why a career in IT will never cease, but will continue to grow and be in demand instead.

Let’s face it, most school counsellors would rarely recommend IT as a choice which is a shame. We often heard of the typical “medical” or “engineering” programs as options to continue your tertiary education. They’re still very good, but having IT as an option is great too!



Most students don’t realise this but a career in IT has become more and more in demand as each year passes. Go check the famous @malaysianpaygap Instagram account and you can see that so many of the careers with high-paying jobs are in the IT field. Some even do it as a freelance job and are able to earn more than the basic wage in Malaysia. You can even try your luck and work for companies abroad like Google or Apple. Just have basic English proficiency and you’re good to go. Many of the companies even offer positions that allow remote and flexible working.

According to Monster.com., the Bureau of Labor Statistics expects a 12% growth rate for the years 2018 to 2028. That’s all you need to know how much potential a career in this field has. Living in the era of IR4.0, I can guarantee you that a career in Informational Technology would definitely be a great push toward your career goals.



Some students might be wondering if it is better to get a certification in IT instead. Although there are companies that consider a background in IT is enough, many companies require jobseekers to have at least a bachelor’s degree. A certification is good to have as a backup to make your application stronger.

In case you’ve missed out Instagram post, Russian universities have collaborated with Fortune Global 500 multinationals such as Microsoft. We’ve mentioned this in our Instagram post before, but you can practice your knowledge and skills at their workshops or offices set up within the universities. If you’re looking for a part-time job while doing your studies in Russia, just inform the university and they will hook you up with jobs based on your specialty. This way, you can gain exposure to real life working experiences. 

DON’T GO LOOKING FOR JOBS! Jobs will come looking for you. Companies in Russia or abroad often recruit students to be a part of their organisations even before they completed their studies. Now, that’s what you call career certainty. On one condition: study smart, work hard, and amazing opportunities will roll your way.
