Trends in filling IT jobs based on Diplomatic Tracing System data

With digitalisation, automation and industry 4.0, the labour market is undergoing major changes. Some professions are disappearing and new ones are growing in parallel. These trends do not leave the Hungarian labour market untouched. Accelerated technological development and digitalisation are transforming not only professions but also the nature of work. Communication technologies make it possible to work in many cases regardless of time and location. In their 2020 research carried out by higher education experts from the Education Office, András Kosnyak, András Kosnyak and Ádám Máté Harkányi, studied the trends in the performance of individual IT-related positions based on data from the Diplomatic Tracing System (DPR).

Researchers looked at the change in the job distribution of students abszoated at the university in seven consecutive years for IT-related jobs for one and a half years after a university degree. For IT-related jobs, the codes of the Unified Classification of Employment (FEOR) were used. The previous classification system (FEOR-93) had to be rethought, as technological changes also significantly transformed jobs. The classification system was re-examined in 2010, resulting in FEOR-08.

Key trends in IT jobs

In the study, researchers looked at absolated absolates from 2011 to 2017 at Bachelor, Master’s and Undivided courses for one and a half years after their course. Five major IT FEOR jobs were included in the analysis and it was found that four of the five major IT FEOR jobs had a significantly increasing share of absolated students in the post-graduate period. The most significant increase in the number of staff was observed in the software developer job, with the number of people working in this job tripling during the period under review. Significant increases were also observed in other software and application developers. A decrease was observed in only one job, in
other database and network analysts and operators.

Distribution of IT posts per training area

Researchers also looked at what other training areas than IT training areas tend to attract students to the IT professions. In the case of the software developer job, the most significant number of people came from its IT image during the period under review, but an increasing number of people also come from some technical training field.

The training background of other software and application developers and analysts FEOR is very diverse. Although most of them still come from an absolated field of IT training, there are also fields of training in economics, engineering, humanities and science.

A mixed picture can also be found in the distribution of graduates from other database and network analysts, operating FEOR by field of training. The highest proportion of the FEOR system analyst (IT) staff during the period under review was in IT or economics.

It can therefore be seen that, in the case of IT posts, we see an increasing diversity in terms of the training background of those who have recently become absolated.
