Do you have a way with words? Companies need you to write killer marketing copy, press releases and other communications. Good at talking to people? You can be part of the sales team, helping technology companies get their products out to market. Have a knack for managing people behind the scenes? Human Resources needs you. So if you think that technology companies don’t want you because you don’t code, think again.
Even better news for you is that the technology sector is hiring. While other industries have cut jobs, technology jobs have been on a steady uptick for five straight years. The growth rate for jobs in the tech sector is at a healthy 3%, as compared to only 2.1% for overall job growth overall.
Now is the time to enter the technology industry. Here are three big benefits of working in tech:
- Work hard—but have fun and never be bored.
It’s no secret that technology companies provide some of the best work environments around. At most tech companies, casual attire is the norm. While technology employees work hard, they benefit tremendously from a collaborative environment in which leadership really cares about employees. New ideas are celebrated and figuring out how to make ideas work is where you will challenge yourself and thrive in a technology company.
- Become part of a culture of innovation.
One need not look far to see how technology is transforming the world, not only in terms of entertainment and personal convenience, but also in agriculture, energy, finance, healthcare, government, security — you name it. When you work for a tech company, you can expect to come into work every day and exercise your creative muscles to solve real-world problems.
- Enjoy high pay and benefits.
Technology companies understand that their success relies upon competent employees. These companies will typically provide higher salaries and benefits than comparable positions outside of the technology sector. Many companies are also known for providing generous benefits to employees, including quality healthcare and paid leave for new parents. In fact, an increasing number of companies are providing their employees a stake in their success by offering stock options. This means that when a company succeeds, you succeed.
When you work for a tech company, every day is new and exciting, offering opportunities to learn and to grow. At OneNeck, we offer a broad spectrum of hybrid technologies, and it’s is a great place to work with some of the brightest minds in the industry. While we seriously work hard – no joking here, we work way hard – we also manage to have a lot of fun.

It’s a win/win.
