OVERVIEW: Robotics is an interdisciplinary sector of science and engineering dedicated to the design, construction and use of mechanical robots. Our guide will give you a concrete grasp of robotics, including different types of robots and how they’re being applied across industries. As you can see, the technology of robotics is growing. According to an article in The New York Times, more and more robots will be replacing humans in everyday tasks and jobs, with the need for more and more robotics engineers, technicians and others in the field. It’s a growing industry and worth focusing your sites on if you’re interested in making a future in one of the many types of jobs in robotics. The industry is growing at 26% per year and the average salary is $88,000.
This is a profession for someone with a lot of patience, besides a lot of training in engineering. An engineer has the responsibility for developing the robot on paper. This creation can take quite some time, because of research and the high technicality and sophistication of robotics. Then, as it’s being built, he will oversee practically every aspect of the development of the robot, from safety to testing to analyzing and reviewing every movement. An engineer will also need to debug any problem within the software system. Because of the need to oversee every project, engineers don’t create very many robots throughout their careers. This type of robotics job is very technical and time consuming.
Each robot needs to have a computerized internal system that is highly efficient in operating the machine. This schematic design is written and coded by the software developer along with the engineer to assure the robot performs the functions it’s designed to carry out in a safe and precise way. Obviously, the software developer has to be very efficient in computer coding and software design.
There are a couple types of technicians. A robotics technician can repair and maintain robots and build some robotic parts along with other tasks. An electromechanical technician works with the engineer in the design process of new robots.
Sales engineers must know the products inside and out, as they will be attempting to sell advanced technological robots and their designs to potential customers. They must also be able to consult with the buyer and make any changes in the design to satisfy their needs.
Of course every robot has to have someone operating and overseeing it 24 hours a day. In case anything should go wrong or break down, someone would need to be on top of the situation immediately. That’s where an operator comes in. Working in shifts around the clock, they ensure everything goes smoothly. They are also needed to operate and repair such equipment as flying drones, undersea robots and robots designed for military activities.
Robotics Account Manager
Yes, there are even jobs within the robotics field that include accounting. For this, an individual would need a strong background in robot technology, sales, accounting, and customer service. He or she would need to be outgoing yet independent, and have a strong personality to connect with and make sales to customers within the robotics industry.
OVERVIEW: If you love video games, it’s natural to be interested in video game careers. The video game industry is the economic sector involved in the development, marketing, and monetization of video games. Even though there are dozens of different game jobs, most of them fall into just six high-level job “families.” Average salary is $66,000. The global video game industry anticipates 12.9% growth in the next seven years.
ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE/MACHINE LEARNING
OVERVIEW: Artificial Intelligence (AI), sometimes called machine intelligence, is the ability of a computer or computer-controlled robot to perform tasks commonly associated with humans. AI makes it possible for machines to “learn” from experience, often using real-time data, and adjust to new inputs and perform human-like tasks. The average salary of an AI engineer is well over $100,000. The global artificial intelligence market is expected to grow 42.2% over the next seven years.
OVERVIEW: Cloud computing is the delivery of computing services—including servers, storage, databases, networking, software, analytics, and intelligence—over the Internet (“the cloud”) to offer faster innovation, flexible resources, and economies of scale. It is expected to expand at a rate of 14.9% over the next seven years. There are many, many different jobs in cloud computing, so the salary range is quite broad, but a typical cloud computing analyst, who designs, tests, and deploys infrastructure for an existing cloud platform can expect a starting salary of $98,000.
OVERVIEW: You may wonder what is the difference between Software Engineering and Software Development. Software engineers are the architects; software developers are the carpenters. Employment is projected to grown 22% over the next ten years. Salaries average $90,000.
DIGITAL PROJECT MANAGEMENT
OVERVIEW: Digital Project Management is a streamlined process of managing online projects from concept to completion, within budget and using a certain amount of resources. It involves planning, delegating, tracking, reviewing, and measuring results, usually using project management software. The average salary is $90,000. Occupations should grow by about 6% over the next five years.
OVERVIEW: Analytics is the systematic computational analysis of data or statistics. It is used for the discovery, interpretation, and communication of meaningful patterns in data. Decision analytics supports human decisions with visual analytics that the user models to reflect reasoning. Descriptive analytics gains insight from historical data with reporting, scorecards, and clustering. Predictive analytics employs predictive modelling using statistical and machine learning techniques. Prescriptive analytics recommends decisions using optimization and simulation. Average salary is $79,000. The global Big Data and business analytics market is expected to grow 15.1% over the next five years.
OVERVIEW: A system administrator, or sysadmin, is a person who is responsible for the upkeep, configuration, and reliable operation of computer systems; especially multi-user computers, such as servers. The system administrator seeks to ensure that the uptime, performance, resources, and security of the computers they manage meet the needs of the users. The average salary is $63,000. The industry growth forecast is 12%.
OVERVIEW: Recruiters find candidates to fill job openings. They often work for recruiting agencies, which are hired by businesses and other organizations to locate qualified candidates. Larger organizations may employ in-house Recruiters. While the latter may earn a set annual income, Recruiters working for agencies often are paid on a commission basis. The talent pool for some positions – often specialized STEM positions – is limited, so competition among Recruiters can be stiff. In many ways, being an Recruiter resembles a sales job. Today, the Recruiter’s job relies heavily on technology. Online job markets are one of the most important pools for new talent, and virtual interviews and trials are commonplace. General duties may also include a role in training new candidates and presenting candidates to management. Having in-house recruiters, or contracting with recruiting agencies, is now commonplace for major firms, so outlook for the Recruiter position is steady. The industry is growing at 3% per year and the average salary is $62,000.
We know this track isn’t exactly high-tech like the others, but we want to include it for a number of reasons:
- Veterans and Military Spouses all share a common interest in wanting to help one another. And what better way to to do that than to assist someone with their career?
- Some people just don’t want to be techies. They prefer a more traditional type job that’s focuses on working one-on-one and not in front of a screen all day.
- Lastly — and this one is a little selfish! — 7 Eagle Group is growing rapidly and we are always in need of great recruiters. If we could train them ourselves, we can build an amazing team that can help even more Veterans and Military Spouses land great jobs.
