Most in-demand IT jobs: Current trends in Quebec

 

In the current information technology context in Quebec, employment trends are evolving rapidly, as are the recruitment needs of companies. This highlights the importance for IT professionals to stay constantly informed to respond to market challenges.

 

Explore in this article the current perspectives on IT jobs and the opportunities they present.

 

 

Current trends 📈

 

Recent years have been marked by strong demand for software development positions, particularly in the development of applications in microservices architecture and in a cloud environment.

 

Today, a new trend is emerging in the IT field. Companies are placing more emphasis on the “Business” aspects of IT, focusing their efforts on transformation projects and the implementation of internal applications such as Customer Relationship Management (CRM) systems and Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems. There is an increasing number of companies in Quebec looking to improve their business processes, maximize the use of their internal software, standardize their practices, and optimize operational efficiency.

 

This focus is resulting in a growing demand for IT professionals, specifically for functional analysts, business analysts, and project managers.

 

 

Change management and data security 🛡️

 

Significant changes within companies of all sizes require increased expertise in change management and data protection, particularly in response to the optimization of their processes and new regulations such as Law 25 in Quebec. Therefore, change management and IT security professionals are increasingly  in demand to ensure smooth transitions and compliance with legal standards.

 

 

Cloud migration ☁️

 

The rise of the business segment in IT is also evident in the technological platform choices of large enterprises. The migration to the cloud has propelled Microsoft Dynamics 365 to the forefront, creating new job opportunities and specializations in this field.

 

This transition to cloud platforms offers advantages in terms of flexibility and scalability, but also requires different expertise in data management and security, thus opening up new career prospects for IT professionals.

 

 

Evolution of IT needs 🚀

 

Although application development remains essential, current demand in Quebec tends towards roles focused more on business and IT security. This evolution demonstrates the need for IT professionals to stay on top of the latest trends and develop expertise to meet the changing needs of the market.

 

Quebec businesses are now looking for IT professionals who have a deep understanding of both the technical and business aspects of information technology, while ensuring the security and regulatory compliance of their systems.

 

 

High demand for soft skills 🔄

 

In addition to technical skills, employers are increasingly placing importance on soft skills such as communication, problem-solving, teamwork and leadership. IT professionals are increasingly in demand for their ability to collaborate effectively with multidisciplinary teams, communicate technical concepts clearly and concisely, and lead projects in an agile and adaptive manner. Thus, developing non-technical skills becomes essential for success in the IT field.
