2. AI and Applied Machine Learning 

Recently, AI and applied machine learning have made huge strides all over the business world, and the demand for skilled IT technicians to continue improving it and make it work seamlessly has jumped. Employers are now looking for people who can program and update chatbots as needed, and those who have practical skills with AI software.

Excellent communication skills are essential, and cross-team functionality is another good skill to be well-versed in.

Cybersecurity is a huge skill to be fluent in, especially with today's digital world.
