If you’re planning to jump ship in the next few months, you might want to look into jobs in these sectors because you could be earning a very healthy salary.
According to specialist professional recruitment consultancy Robert Walters, the banking and financial services, engineering, and legal and compliance
sectors can expect to see salary increments between 20 to 25 per cent
in 2018, as reported by New Straits Times
And if you’re working in Information and Technology
, you’re also one of the fortunate ones because this sector is expected to see the fastest growth next year with salary hikes between 20 to 30 per cent
There is a high demand in IT jobs in areas like fintech, banking and healthcare, such as data analysts, software engineers and cyber security.
This year, software developers skilled in programming languages were highly sought after because a lot of companies were looking to hire candidates who could “speak” more than one coding language.
As more business and corporations move towards digitalisation and following the implementation of the Digital Free Trade Zone, Robert Walters expects this hiring trend to continue for a while.
Although a 15 to 20 per cent pay raise is common practice, candidates with niche skills and good adaptability could enjoy between 25 to 30 per cent increments when they switch jobs.
So, maybe it’s time to pick up a new skill!
