Computer Networking Jobs in 2023

Jan 4, 2023 2:34:00 PM

Just what is computer networking? It’s the practice of connecting devices to share information. And it’s one of the hottest fields around.

Companies have long relied on computer networking experts to design, build, secure, maintain, and support the digital information systems that link employees and customers. But with the enormous shift to remote work during the pandemic, the demand for networking professionals really took off.

As companies implemented work-from-home policies or a hybrid office structure, employees who were once connected to in-office setups had to learn remote practices. That often involved using new sharing software, connecting to a company-wide VPN, or other tactics. As a result, the need for those experienced in computer networking has grown dramatically.

As in any field, computer networking jobs have various levels. To succeed and move up, you need to demonstrate good problem-solving, communication, prioritizing, and teamwork skills. You also need to keep up with rapidly changing technology.

So where could you start out as a total beginner, and what opportunities are there to advance your career?
