One of the best things about the technology field is that it is always changing – which means you have almost unlimited opportunities to change your role within it. While adding new languages and systems is always a good idea, employers are also looking for IT professionals interested in contributing in other ways.

According to the team at Sitepoint, there are high demand skills IT pros can acquire without writing a single line of code, yet they can greatly enhance your earning power and marketability:

Data Analysis

All things data are hot right now. This career can take lots of forms. Some data analysts do know programming languages but analyzing data can happen in a ton of ways. A lot of data analysis is all about using tools like Microsoft Excel and even Google Analytics.

Rapid Prototyping

This sub-specialization in the UX/UI field is all about wire framing applications quickly. It can be as simple as a quick sketch or as complex as a full prototype: the point is to have various design options for a website or application idea, and incorporate feedback to refine the final product.

Adobe Products

Tools like Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign allow you to wireframe websites; make blog graphics and social media graphics, plus more. Knowledge of these programs is desired in design roles primarily but the ability to enhance work plans and technical presentations is in high demand.

Growth Hacking

Don’t let the hacking part throw you off: growth hacking is an up-and-coming marketing technique that focuses on acquiring users quickly. It’s all about problem solving, and combines digital marketing with web analytics: two areas that are experiencing incredible growth.

Agile Methodology

Agile is a project management methodology meant to help teams deal efficiently with unpredictable situations. It’s typically found in software development but now many other industries use the methodology to manage projects and business flow.

The lines between what is “just technology” and business continue to blur. IT professionals who possess a wide range of hot business skills will experience increased demand.
