CYBER SECURITY

OVERVIEW:  Cyber security refers to the body of technologies, processes, and practices designed to protect networks, devices, programs, and data from attack, damage, or unauthorized access. It’s also be referred to as information technology security.  The industry is growing at 31% per year and the average starting salary is $62,000.

Security Consultant A security consultant design and implement the strongest possible security solutions based on the needs and threats facing an individual company, and day-to-day tasks may vary widely. A security consultant might determine the most effective way to protect computers, networks, software, data, and information systems against attacks, perform vulnerability testing and risk analyses, test security solutions, respond to any incidents, and update security systems as needed, depending on the terms of their contract. Chief Information Security Officer The chief information security officer (CISO) is the leader of all security initiatives in a company. While these tech professionals were traditionally seen as security enforcers, they are now often considered strategists helping the enterprise avoid cybercrime. CISOs typically appoint and guide a team of security experts, create a strategic plan for the deployment of information security technologies and programs, develop corporate security policies, and monitor security vulnerabilities, among a number of other tasks. Security Engineer Security engineers are intermediate-level positions that build and maintain IT security solutions for a company. These professionals develop security for the organization’s systems and projects, and also handle any technical problems that arise. Security engineers are often responsible for configuring and installing firewalls and intrusion detection systems, performing vulnerability testing, developing automation scripts to track incidents, and testing security solutions.4. Security architect. The senior-level security architect position involves designing, building, and overseeing the implementation of network and computer security for a company. Security architects must plan, research, and design strong security architectures for all IT projects, perform security assessments, respond to incidents, develop requirements for LANs, WANs, VPNs, routers, firewalls, and other network devices, as well as design PKIs, among other tasks. Incident Responder An incident responder (sometimes called a computer security incident response team engineer or an intrusion analyst) is essentially a cyber firefighter, and must rapidly address security threats and incidents within a company. “In your role as a first responder, you will be using a host of forensics tools to find the root cause of a problem, limit the damage and see that it never happens again,” according to CyberDegrees.org. “Like a firefighter, part of your job will also involve education and prevention.” This involves actively monitoring systems and networks for attacks, identifying security vulnerabilities, performing malware analysis and reverse engineering, and establishing protocols for communication within an organization and with law enforcement during a security incident. Computer Forensics Expert A computer forensics expert acts as a digital detective, accessing and analyzing evidence from computers, networks, and data storage devices. On a day-to-day basis, this role involves conducting security incident investigations, recovering and examining data from devices, compiling evidence for legal cases, and advising law enforcement on the credibility of acquired data. These experts often work for large corporations, law enforcement agencies, legal firms, private consulting firms, and the government. Penetration Tester Penetration testers, also know as ethical hackers, are responsible for legally hacking into an organization’s applications, networks, and systems to discover and later patch security vulnerabilities. This role involves creating and performing formal penetration tests, conducting physical security assessments of servers, systems, and network devices, using social engineering to discover security flaws, and incorporating business considerations into security strategies. Security Analyst A security analyst detects and prevents cyberthreats for a company. This might involve planning, implementing, and upgrading security measures and controls, performing risk analyses, conducting internal and external security audits, managing network, intrusion detection, and prevention systems, and coordinating security plans with third party vendors. Security Software Developer These tech professionals develop security software and integrate security into applications software during the design and development process. Depending on the specific position and company, a security software developer might oversee a team of developers in the creation of secure software tools, develop a company-wide software security strategy, participate in the lifecycle development of software systems, support software deployments to customers, and test their work for vulnerabilities. Security Auditor A security auditor is a mid-level role responsible for examining the safety and effectiveness of company computer systems and their security components, and then issuing a detailed report outlining the success of the system and any changes or improvements that could be made. These professionals plan, execute, and lead security audits across a company, evaluate the efficiency, effectiveness, and compliance of operational processes with corporate security policies and any government regulations, and develop and administer risk-focused exams for IT systems.

ROBOTICS

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.

Robotics Engineer
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.

Software Developer
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.

Technician
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 Engineer
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.

Operators
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.

GAMING

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.

Video Game Designer

Most studios break the design job down into separate areas like level design, mission/quest design, or overall game design.  Larger games will break things down even further – a big team might have one or more designers dedicated to things like combat design, tuning and balancing, or pacing.

Video Game QA Tester

The tester’s main job is to play the latest under-construction version (“build”) of the game, and report anything that looks bad or doesn’t work right (a “defect”).  Some QA testers work with the game build only (called “black box” testers) while others may have some access to the source code and aid the developers with debugging (called “grey box” or “white box” testers depending on the level of source code visibility).

Video Game Programmer

Programming is by far the most technical job in the industry.  Most programmers start by getting a degree in computer science, but if you’re a good self-starter then you may be able to learn on your own and try for an entry-level programming job at a game company.  A video game programmer uses a programming language like C++, C#, or Java, to instruct the computer on how to take all the art and other content and turn it into a working game.

Video Game Artist/Animator

Art is one of the hardest game jobs to get into, because you need strong artistic talent.  You should be good with various art tools that are used to create digital content, such as Autodesk Maya and Adobe Photoshop, and have assembled a great portfolio.  There are many sub-specializations that any artist could spend an entire career working to master.  Examples of specialized areas include concept art, character modeling, character rigging, animation, environments, and visual effects.  Each art career has a different skill set, as well as a different salary range.

Video Game Audio Engineer

Most of the audio jobs in the industry are contract positions.  There are precious few audio jobs in the game industry, because just one audio engineer can often serve multiple teams.  Under the “game audio” umbrella you’ll find a few specializations including music composer, Foley engineer, audio engineer generalist, and various jobs of programming/mixing/implementing audio in the game build.

Video Game Producer

Every team needs a person who helps guide them and focus them, so they can concentrate on doing great work.  For a game team, that person is the Producer.  They’re responsible for the daily planning and management of the team.  Entry-level producers may be called associate producers, and may be more focused on the daily tasks of scheduling than on the bigger picture.  More senior producers often become “product owners” and are responsible for the long-term planning, and possibly even the finances, of the game project.  Executive producers often oversee the development of multiple games at once.

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.

Artificial Intelligence Engineer

AI Engineers build, test, and deploy AI models, as well as maintain the underlying AI infrastructure.  They are problem-solvers who can navigate between traditional software development and machine learning implementations.

Data Mining and Analysis

Data mining analysts turn data into information, information into insight and insight into business decisions. They use statistical software to analyze, identify and assess data attributes in order to develop recommendations and creative solutions that improve operations and support their organization’s business objectives.

Machine Learning Engineer

Machine learning engineers, on the other hand, design self-running software to automate predictive models.  Each time the software performs an operation, it uses those results to carry out future operations with a greater degree of accuracy.  This is how the software, or machine, “learns.”

Business Intelligence Developer

Business intelligence developers make the data understandable for businesses.  Business intelligence (BI) leverages software tools to transform data into useful insights that help business decisions.  BI tools access and analyze data sets and present analytical findings in reports, summaries, dashboards, graphs, charts, and maps to provide users with detailed intelligence about the state of the business.

CLOUD COMPUTING

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.

Cloud Engineer

A cloud engineer is an IT professional responsible for any technological duties associated with cloud computing, including design, planning, management, maintenance and support.

Cloud Administrator

To become a cloud administrator, a candidate generally must have three to five years of practical experience in the cloud.  A cloud admin should have a strong understanding of system management, troubleshooting and virtualization.  They should know Linux, along with some configuration management tools, monitoring tools and scripting languages.

Cloud Architect

A cloud architect focuses on the big picture of infrastructure design and configuration rather than individual server configurations.  To succeed, the candidate should bring eight to 10 years of experience and be able to build a roadmap for the organization’s existing and future cloud assets.

Cloud Network Engineer

A cloud network engineer wears many hats.  The role is primarily responsible for the implementation, configuration, maintenance and support of the entire cloud network — but the obligations don’t stop there.  Cloud network engineers can also oversee the administration, monitoring, documentation, security and integration of the company’s network, as well as other related cloud services.

Cloud Security Manager

A security manager designs, implements and maintains security strategies.  They should know the major modern software development approaches, because the role is often incorporated into software development.

SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT/ENGINEERING

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.

Software Developer

A software developer focuses on building one part of the system at a time.  They often write code from scratch.  They’re responsible for executing development plans and programming software into existence.  Developers are more concerned with implementation and often work independently.  With a smaller scope of work, they may have a more creative role.  Software developers are often self-taught, and may become software engineers by gaining experience working on and managing additional aspects of the development life cycle.

Web Developer

Web developers design and build web pages.   They are responsible for how a website looks.  They create the site’s layout and integrate graphics, applications (such as a retail checkout tool), and other content.  They also write web design programs in a variety of computer languages, such as HTML or JavaScript. They construct the back end of a site and create its outward (front-end) appearance.  Web developers can work in-house or freelance, and must meet both the client’s needs and those of the customer or end user.

Computer Programmer

Computer programmers build computer applications by writing code in various computer languages. They test new programs and check for bugs.  They may translate designs from software developers and engineers into workable code.  They may also update or expand the code of existing programs or test programs for errors, finding and resolving faulty lines of code.

Software Engineer

Software engineers design, develop, maintain, test, and evaluate computer software.  They also work with other components of the hardware system.  They tend to work on a team and solve issues on a much larger scale.  Software engineers are concerned with the structure and stability of an entire system. Their primary function is to ensure that the software does what it’s intended to and that all components — applications, networks, servers, etc. — work together.  They’re well-versed in multiple programming languages and because of their training, engineers are typically compensated more than developers.

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.

Project Manager

The project manager plays a primary role in the project and is responsible for its successful completion.  The manager’s job is to ensure that the project proceeds within the specified time frame and under the established budget, while achieving its objectives.  Project managers make sure that projects are given sufficient resources, while managing relationships with contributors and stakeholders.

Project Team Member

Project team members are the individuals who actively work on one or more phases of the project.  They may be in-house staff or external consultants, working on the project on a full-time or part-time basis.  Team member roles can vary according to each project.

Project Sponsor

The project sponsor is the driver and in-house champion of the project.  They are typically members of senior management – those with a stake in the project’s outcome.  They often help resolve conflicts and remove obstacles that occur throughout the project, and they sign off on approvals needed to advance each phase.

Executive Project Sponsor

The executive sponsor is ideally a high-ranking member of management.  He or she is the visible champion of the project with the management team and is the ultimate decision-maker, with final approval on all phases, deliverables and scope changes.

Business Analyst

The business analyst defines needs and recommends solutions to make an organization better.  When part of a project team, they ensure that the project’s objectives solve existing problems or enhance performance and add value to the organization.  They can also help maximize the value of the project deliverables.

DATA ANALYTICS

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.

Business Intelligence Analyst

At most companies, this is a kind of data analyst role. BI Analysts will be expected to be comfortable analyzing data, working with SQL, and doing data visualization and modeling. Like most data roles, this job also requires strong communication skills so that you can communicate your results convincingly to others at the company.

Data Analyst

Data Analysts do exactly what the job title implies — analyze company and industry data to find value and opportunities.  Data analysts can be found in every industry, and job titles can vary.  Some roles will have industry-specific names like “healthcare data analyst,” “business analyst”, and “intelligence analyst.”  Unlike data scientists, they’re typically not expected to be proficient in machine learning. But most data analyst jobs require programming and SQL skills, as well as statistical knowledge, comfort with the data analysis workflow, and data visualization skills.

Data Scientist

Much like analysts in other roles, data scientists collect and analyze data and communicate actionable insights.  Data scientists are often a technical step above of data analysts.  They are the ones who understand data from a more informed perspective to help make predictions.  These positions require a strong knowledge of data analytics including software tools, programming languages like Python or R, and data visualization skills to better communicate findings.

Data Engineer

Data engineers often focus on larger datasets and are tasked with optimizing the infrastructure surrounding different data analytics processes.  A data engineer might focus on the process of capturing data to make acquisition pipelines more efficient.  They may also need to upgrade a database infrastructure for faster queries.

Quantitative Analyst

A quantitative analyst is another highly sought-after professional, especially in financial firms.  Quantitative analysts use data analytics to seek out potential financial investment opportunities or risk management problems.  They may also venture out on their own, creating trading models to predict the prices of stocks, commodities, and exchange rates.

Data Analytics Consultant

An analytics consultant may specialize in particular industry or area of research.  These positions are best for those who like change, and those who have a narrowed interest and expertise in a field of study.  Analytics consultants are also in a great position to work remotely, another enticing factor about this role to consider.

Operations Analyst

Operations analysts focus on the internal processes of a business.  This can include internal reporting systems, product manufacturing and distribution, and the general streamlining of business operations.  It’s more important for professionals in these roles to have general business savvy, and they often have technical knowledge of the systems they’re working with.  Operations analysts are found in every type of business, from large grocery chains, to postal service providers, to the military.

Marketing Analyst

Marketing professionals need analysts to make smart decisions about how to leverage existing resources.  Marketers often use tools like Google Analytics, custom reporting tools and other third-party sites to analyze traffic from websites and social media advertisements.

Project Manager

Project managers need at least a working understanding of data analytics.  Project managers use analytics tools to keep track of a team’s progress, track their efficiency, and increase productivity by changing processes.

IT Systems Analyst

Some systems analysts use existing third-party tools to test software within a company, while others develop new, proprietary tools from their understanding of data analytics and the business itself.

Transportation Logistics Specialist

A transportation logistics specialist optimizes transportation of physical goods, and could be found in large shipping companies, like Amazon, UPS, naval transport companies, airlines and city planning offices.  They need to reliably identify the most efficient paths for products and services to be delivered.  They must look at large amounts of data to help identify and eliminate bottlenecks in transit, be it on land, sea or in the air.

SYSTEMS ADMINISTRATOR

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%.

Database Administrator

A database administrator maintains a database system and is responsible for the integrity of the data and the efficiency and performance of the system.

Network Administrator

A network administrator maintains network infrastructure, such as switches and routers, and diagnoses problems with these or with the behavior of network-attached computers.

Web Administrator

A web administrator maintains web services (such as Apache or IIS) that allow for internal or external access to web sites.  Tasks include managing multiple sites, administering security, and configuring necessary components and software.  Responsibilities may also include change management.

Computer Operator

A computer operator performs routine maintenance and upkeep, such as changing backup tapes or replacing failed drives in a Redundant Array of Independent Disks (RAID) system.  Such tasks usually require physical presence in the room with the computer, and while less skilled than sysadmin tasks, may require a similar level of trust, since the operator has access to possibly sensitive data.

RECRUITING

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: 

  1. 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? 
  2. 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. 
  3. 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.
Recruiting Manager

Recruiters are primarily responsible for overseeing the recruiting and vetting process for new candidates. Recruiters scan candidates in online marketplaces, reach out to those who are qualified, conduct interviews and background checks and present resumes of approved candidates to hiring managers.

Client Manager

Client Managers make cold calls, send emails, and lead high-level discovery calls with prospective hiring companies. The ultimate goal is to book sales appointments with high-level executives (CEO’s, Vice Presidents, Senior Managers, and HR Directors) that eventually turn into legitimate sales opportunities. Client Managers negotiate contracts and determine the Placement Fees and terms.
