You can use the interactive tool on this page and see if you’re on the right track in building your skills. Are you interested in mobile? Social? Cloud? Analytics? Choose one and discover what industry is ahead or behind in adoption. Then look at which industries are investing and finally where they assess themselves in terms of having the required skills. Your sweet spot might be to find an industry you want to work in, which is investing in one of the big four, and needs skills you can be building today.
Examples -for MOBILE - in media & entertainment, there is about a 50% adoption rate, they are increasing their investments, and they indicate that they do have moderate to major skills gaps! In social – same industry – they think they are at the adoption stage for the most part; are maintaining spend, and have indicated major gaps in skills. Very similar results come up for Cloud. For Analytics, they show a lot of adoption, decreasing spend, ye a fairly big skills gap. Wonder what that’s all about?

“Between the 1st and 3rd of July, 75 students from all over Europe and the Middle East attended this year’s Best Student Recognition Event (BSRE) at IBM Montpellier, in France. I was one of two students going from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), and one of four students going from Norway. The event consisted of three days packed with presentations, tours, food, and fun.”
