Two of the top 10 skills that employers in the IT industry are looking for are directly related to cloud computing. The Art of Service’s newly expanded Cloud Computing Complete eLearning Bundle helps IT professionals become certified experts in cloud computing, opening up the possibilities for promotions and new and better jobs.
According to Indeed, a job-finding search engine that analyzed millions of job postings for keywords, the top ten skills employers are looking for are all related to software development, cloud computing platforms, mobile development and social media.
