About this talk

Cloud adoption is increasing job opportunities in Cloud Computing. The onslaught of the COVID-19 pandemic has expedited a rapid surge in the adoption of cloud computing infrastructure. Businesses significantly bolster their IT spending, especially in cloud services to rollout business models that meet remote working environments and help them to stay connected with each other. So, as more and more companies invest in cloud infrastructures, a job opportunity in the cloud industry is gaining momentum. According to Economic Times, the cloud computing market in India is expected to reach US$4 billion by 2020, from US$2.2 billion in 2018, at an annual growth rate of 30%. This surge in the cloud market will create a million cloud computing job roles by 2022.As businesses compete to lead the cloud ecosystem, they will seek the best talent. A 2018 Pearson VUE study reported that nearly 35% of technical professionals said getting certified led to salary or wage increases and 26% reported job promotions. However, a significant gender gap exists in cloud-based roles, with women accounting for only 12% of cloud computing workers worldwide. This webinar is designed to help women explore opportunities to join the cloud computing workforce. In this session we will focus on helping you to provide insights, advice and solutions to get you prepared for a job in the Cloud computing workforce. Plus, learn how you can get access to free digital skilling scholarships to rapidly access cloud jobs. The panel is moderated by Stacy Tatem (WIC Brand Ambassador) and joined by Debbie Uttecht, Brenda Saucedo, and Chaitra Vedullapalli
