Grocers Serving IT And Cybersecurity Careers
IT and Cybersecurity careers have fascinated the workforce for the last 30 years, and finding practical ways to start a tech career can be puzzling. One way that helps people navigate the confusion is to look at all IT and Cybersecurity careers as a service provided to companies and their customers. For example, let’s compare IT and Cybersecurity professionals to Human Resources (HR) professionals. HR professionals offer a service that all companies need. For example, imagine how mad employees would be if their company did not have an HR professional providing payroll services to ensure they were paid.
Additionally, HR professionals are the workforce that recruits and onboards new talent for organizations. Now, imagine trying to do any job in any industry without IT services. As a result, IT and Cybersecurity skills have become services that all companies need unless they choose to operate off the grid (that is another discussion).
Grocery companies are no exception to the rules. Since we have established that all companies need IT services, it’s safe to say that the Grocery industry requires tech talent to help move their products, especially when you factor in the number of grocers that have adopted e-commerce.
What the 2020 Pandemic Taught Us About IT And Groceries
When we were locked in our houses during the 2020 pandemic, we had to rely on e-commerce grocery shopping to feed our families. This new-found reliance on e-commerce grocery shopping revealed how much the grocery industry relies on IT services. Since IT has become a necessity in the grocery industry, the need for tech talent has also gone up. Therefore, the grocery industry is a sector aspiring IT professionals can use to start cyber careers. In this video, Geronimo explains how grocers like H-E-B may be the perfect companies for IT and Cybersecurity jobs.
