Careers in technology that you might not know about

30 May, 2012

We all know about the usual technology careers, but what if there was a more interesting way to work in the technology industry. We’ll let you in on a little secret; there is! Technology doesn’t have to be boring, just check out these careers for proof!

Professional Gamer
Yes, that’s right, some people actually get paid a monthly wage to play games – sounds too good to be true, right?
It’s not easy to become a professional gamer, you have the be at the top of your ‘game’ (excuse the pun) but when you get there the rewards will come. Top gaming companies and manufacturers approach the best gamers on the scene and ask them to represent them for a monthly wage.

Social Media Consultant
Another ‘too-good-to-be-true’ job, but with digital marketing becoming de rigueur and the ever rising social empire threatening to take over the world, most companies are using social media to sell their brand. The only problem is, a lot of brands have no idea how to use social media to their advantage and that’s where social media consulting comes in. A social media consultant makes it their business to know all there is to know about sites like facebook and twitter, effectively, it’s their job to be on social media all day!!

Blogger
Long gone are the days where people blog merely for the fun of it. Nowadays bloggers can use their blog to bring in a monthly wage. The more popular your blog becomes, the more money you are likely to make with companies contacting top bloggers to pay them for advertising space or sponsored posts. Bloggers are often offered a range of products to test for their blogs and quite often make even more money by selling these products on. If you want to become a professional blogger you’ll need to set up your own blog and be able to blog on the go, check out laptop sales for the perfect mobile computers or grab a tablet device.

Big Data
Big data scientists develop systems that help companies to deal with large amounts of data and considering 90% of all of the world’s data was created in the last two years we are definitely in need help dealing with this influx in data. Our world is now completely data-driven and big data scientists are in high demand and it’s this demand that makes this a rather well paid job role.
