The new year has finally arrived, which means that countless professionals across the country are beginning to set their sights on new and ambitious career goals. This is especially true within the telecommunications industry, which has been dramatically transformed in recent years by the advent of several new and revolutionary technologies.
On the one hand, the rise of technologies like 5G presents certain challenges for modern telecommunications professionals. It can be difficult, for example, for job candidates to initially familiarize themselves with these new tools and to incorporate them into their skill set.
At the same time, they also present a number of rare and valuable opportunities: As these new technologies become increasingly prevalent, they will also continue to create a multitude of exciting jobs that exist at the cutting edge of the modern telecommunications industry.
Three Reasons Why You Should Pursue a New Telecom Role in 2021
With those ideas in mind, here are a few reasons why 2021 is the perfect time to pursue a new role in the telecommunications industry:
Growth within the industry is expected to continue.
The proliferation and rapid development of mobile communication networks is producing major growth within the telecommunications industry. According to a recent report from Grand View Research, this trend is expected to continue at a compound annual growth rate of 5% over the next several years.
The COVID-19 pandemic is also producing accelerated growth within the industry.
Over the course of the last year, the COVID-19 crisis has forced millions of Americans to begin working from home. This, in turn, has created an enormous demand on wireless communication networks across the country. At this point, it’s still too early to determine exactly how the pandemic is going to fundamentally alter the telecommunications industry. What does seem to be probable as of early 2021, however, is that the ongoing pandemic – and the “new normal” of working from home – is going to create new demands (and job opportunities) across the telecommunications industry.
New infrastructures are creating new jobs.
As we mentioned above, the launch of revolutionary new technologies such as 5G are completely reshaping the telecommunications industry – as well as the job market. A 2020 report, for example, predicts that “The 5G Revolution” will affect 100% of the economy and will create 4.6 million new jobs by 2034. (Talk about a growth industry!)
