US News analyzed data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics to rank jobs based on factors such as hiring demand, growth, average salary, employment rate, outlook and stress level. A recent survey by ZipRecruiter indicated that more than a quarter of workers who were laid off in the tech sector moved to a different industry. Competition for workers to stay in the tech industry has increased as jobs in the industry shrink and the number of people trying to fill them increases. The situation is a bit bad for software developers in the technology sector, but there are opportunities in other sectors. However, the packages for software developers in sectors ranging from finance to retail are lower than those in the technology industry.
The healthcare sector is best for those looking for more job security. Jobs like Registered Nurse and Health Services Manager are available in this. The number of companies laying off staff in the technology sector is on the rise. A new employee performance evaluation system is being implemented at Google related to Internet search. This will put a large number of workers at risk of low performance ratings. Fewer workers will be able to achieve higher qualifications compared to previous years. The new review system will be implemented starting this year.
Google estimates that six percent of the company’s full-time workers will fall into the low-rank category. This will increase the risk to your job. However, the company can give those workers the opportunity to improve. In the current company system, only two percent of workers get the lowest job. The challenge for Google staff will increase, as even high-ranking workers will have to work their way up the ranks. Google estimates that only 22 percent of workers will fall into the top two categories. In the current system, this figure is around 27 percent.
