Coding skills are in high demand

Seven million job openings in 2015 were in occupations which value coding skills. This corresponds to 20% of “career track” jobs, defined as those which pay a national living wage of at least $15/hour.

Coding Skills are Not Just for Programmers
Coding skills are of value to candidates across five major job categories:
• Information Technology (IT) workers
• Data Analysts
• Artists and Designers
• Engineers
• Scientists

Coding skills Provide an Avenue to High-Income Jobs
Half of jobs in the top income quartile (>$57,000 per year) are in occupations which commonly require coding skills from job applicants.

Coding Jobs Pay More
Jobs requiring coding skills pay $22,000 per year more than jobs that don’t: $84,000 vs $62,000 per year. (This analysis includes only “career track” jobs.)


Coding Jobs are Growing Faster than the Job Market
Programming jobs are growing fastest, 50% faster than the market overall. In general, programming jobs are growing 12% faster than the market average.

 

According to the study by Burning Glass Technologies and Oracle Academy (2016), "Beyond Point and Click - the Expanding Demand for Coding Skills" based on an analysis of millions of job postings across the United States.

“This is the lesson: never give in, never give in, never, never, never, never—in nothing, great or small, large or petty—never give in except to convictions of honour and good sense. Never yield to force; never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy.” 

- Winston Churchill
