Tech Pros Gain New Insights on What Skills to Acquire

San Jose, California, January 24, 2017—Dice®, the leading career hub for technology and engineering professionals, today is announcing a new Career Path feature for its popular Dice Careers Mobile App. This new feature helps tech pros explore different career paths based on their skills and experience, and proactively position themselves for future job opportunities.

The tech sector represents some of the most-sought careers in the world, garnering higher salaries and giving professionals an opportunity to advance some of the most important innovations of our day. The Dice Careers Mobile App is free and offers a complete platform for tech pros to manage and accelerate their careers. Leveraging Dice’s rich data and advanced analytics, this app gives tech pros an edge by personalizing recommendations for users, including tech jobs, skills, career paths, and salary information.

“Dice has one of the most extensive tech industry databases in the world of salary, skills, experience and title data,” said Bob Melk, President of Dice. “We’re putting that to work for the tech professional with the new Career Path feature, which we expect will offer the professional a competitive advantage and increase the talent pool for employers.”

The Career Path feature assesses tech professionals’ experience, skills, location and title, and uses that data to provide customized recommendations on related roles, along with the in-demand skills a professional would need to make the transition. For example, if a tech professional is currently an iOS Developer with Java skills, and is looking to expand their background to become an Android Developer, the path feature will consider their current skills as well as recommend skills to acquire to become more competitive. In this case, the tool would recommend the professional acquire JSON, Eclipse and Android SDK skills, bridging the potential skills gap required for their next career move.

The Career Path feature is available now. To download the Dice Careers Mobile App, please visit the App Store.
