The cloud computing space is evolving fast and the number of opportunities is intensifying by each passing day. There is a significant demand for fresh talent and for candidates with 2-5 years of experience for this role. Organisations are seeking specialised skills while hiring these candidates. However, experts believe that skills and expertise can be built with experience and time. But there are other crucial factors that contribute to crafting a successful career in cloud computing. Below are the five tips to have a career in cloud computing.
Awareness of Application Programming Interface (API).
Awareness of API tops the list. Nothing works without them in the cloud computing space. This is particularly important for a person aspiring to build his career in the cloud software engineering.
Awareness of platforms & ability to build them for virtualization.
The incumbent has to have the know-how about popular cloud development environments such as, VMware, OpenStack, etc. and should have the ability to understand the mechanism to integrate these platforms into the cloud services
Expertise to bring in a USP.
Technically, a lot of services various organisations offer are similar to their competition. One has to figure a USP to sell its employer’s services differently. For eg – The Cloud Factory launched VEGA, an ICT bundle for SMEs, which may look similar to that of its competitors. But The Cloud Factory has chosen to provide training to improve the online presence of SMEs. Differentiators like these need to be identified by the applicant and implement them.
GENERAL KNACK TO BE AN EXPLORER.
The aspirant should know all technology developments in the cloud industry and related ecosystems. The ability to identify new technologies and then use them in the cloud space to make the product or service better is a critical quality that makes a great cloud computing professional. Certifications also play a pivotal role in building an effective career in cloud computing. There are two types of cloud computing careers that have emerged in the jobs space – IT professionals with specific cloud skills and IT administrators with cloud architecture know-how.
