Jobs That the Internet Created

Social Media Manager

Social media is big business and every company knows that they need to have a presence if they want to reach out to both new and existing customers. Naturally, this is a job that didn’t exist even ten years ago but in 2013, LinkedIn placed social media management as the top skill based on its member profiles and their job-hunting success.

Web Developer

Web developers have become absolutely crucial in today’s world. They create all the web pages that we browse through by using complicated foreign computer languages that most of us don’t even understand.  

The Internet has been fantastic for the IT industry because since its commercialisation, IT roles have positively boomed and web development continues to be one of the most sought after skills in the job market.

SEO Consultant

As the Internet continues to grow in popularity, it means that it becomes harder and harder for companies to get their site in the top rankings of Google and out-perform their competitors. Because of this, search engine optimisation (SEO) has become another sought-after profession. This job entails using some clever techniques such as keyword implementation, email campaigns and display advertising to increase traffic and improve the visibility of a website.

App Developer

Anyone with a smartphone knows that they can’t live without at least a handful of their most beloved apps. Whether we’re waiting for the train, trying to pass the time at work or are relaxing on the sofa, we all rely on apps to keep ourselves entertained at some point throughout the day. The app market has well and truly paved the way for a new and fun form of developing and has seen many people become millionaires after coming up with simple yet catchy concepts.

User Experience Designer

With everyone wanting their own website, user experience professionals are now very much in demand. User experience (UX) design is a crucial part of building a website because it considers how users navigate and interact with a website. Successful user experience leads to increased conversion rates, sales and of course, traffic.
