Over an eight-year period tracked by Cybersecurity Ventures, the number of unfilled cybersecurity jobs grew by 350 percent, from one million positions in 2013 to 3.5 million in 2021. For the first time in a decade, the cybersecurity skills gap is leveling off. Looking five years ahead, we predict the same number of openings in 2025. Press Release
Many cybersecurity jobs (which should not be calculated into the worker shortage) are advertised in order to generate potential replacement candidates in a competitive market with high turnover. There are also duplicate job postings from employers and search firms (as well as contract recruiters) for the same positions.
While many mid-sized to large organizations post cybersecurity jobs that go unfilled, a growing portion of the responsibilities for those positions are being absorbed by IT workers taking on security as part of their overall role.
An associate degree in cybersecurity can pave the way to many entry-level jobs, according to ZDNet, with positions including cybersecurity analyst, information security analyst, and penetration tester, and annual median salaries ranging from $75,000 to more than $100,000.
Cybercrime, which is predicted to cost the world $10.5 trillion annually by 2025, up from $6 trillion in 2021, will continue generating a number of new jobs roughly equal to those being filled over the next 5 years.
While some cybersecurity associations have put forward their own job estimations, they have coalesced around our cybersecurity jobs data, providing the industry with a reliable de facto statistic that we can all agree upon.
The number of new housing units, mostly apartments and condominiums, was much less than the 52,700 new jobs estimated by the California Employment Development Department to have been added in the nine-county Bay Area last year.
When we look at differences in years since learning to code by gender, we see evidence for the shifting demographics of coding as a profession, as well as retention problems in the tech industry for underrepresented groups. Research shows, for example, that women leave jobs in tech at higher rates than men. Among our respondents, both in the United States and internationally, women are about twice as likely as men to have three years of coding experience or less. Companies interested in building a diverse developer workforce that is more reflective of society should focus on retention of their senior developers from underrepresented groups, along with thoughtful hiring from the population of more junior developers.
We asked respondents to picture themselves comparing two jobs with the same compensation, benefits, and location, and consider which characteristics would most influence their choice between the two. Different types of developers apply different sets of priorities when considering jobs. Developers who belong to gender minorities in tech rank the office environment and company culture as their highest concern when assessing a new job, and are more likely to say the diversity of an organization is a top concern for them.
Almost 60% of developers say they prefer to work in an office, while over 30% (close to 40% in the United States) would prefer to work at their own homes. If that's you, check out remote developer jobs here on Stack Overflow.
