Software Engineering Skills 2024: What Financial Firms Need to Know

If you’re a financial institution short of a few good software engineers, you’re not alone. 

Fueled by a pressing need for constant innovation, compliance adherence, and flexibility, over 90% of banks and insurers are in the midst of migrating their legacy systems to the cloud — up from 37% just three years ago.

At the same time, the scarcity of software engineering talent is deepening. Financial firms aren’t just competing with other organizations within the industry, but with virtually every industry — and not just here in the U.S., but the world over. 

You’re always going to be playing catch-up to some degree — and the challenge will always be: How do we evolve our skills, capabilities, and competencies to keep pace?” 
Ciaran Moloney, VP of Solutions at General Assembly  

So the question is: How do you fill open software engineer roles, future-proof their skills, and maintain a steady stream of talent to help your financial institution keep pace with its modernization goals?

Thinking about switching to a tech career? Now’s a great time. Even amidst all the changes happening in the workforce, the demand for tech-skilled workers is still booming. In fact, 26% of tech recruiters anticipate having a higher recruiting budget in 2024.

We get it — and you’re not alone. That’s why we’re launching a new Software Engineering Part Time Bootcamp that allows lifelong learners to pick up essential tech skills while tending to a full-time job and other responsibilities.

Career Tarotscopes for March 2024

By

GA Astrology Career Card Deck

Estimated reading time: 10 minutes

Rebecca Szymczak, aka Cardsy B, author of The Saturn Diaries and tarot reader to the stars, consulted her cards and has tips for which signs should dive deep into March’s Piscean intuition to implement new strategies and which signs should pause until the equinox at month’s end to make any sudden moves. She also has some cosmic timing suggestions regarding when to schedule important meetings and when to make requests from bosses and clients.

March is the breakthrough month between winter and spring, which also acts as the catalyst for more light and illumination to enter, especially regarding areas where we may have felt stuck or stagnant. We enter March in Pisces season with Mercury, the planet of communication, also in Pisces, meaning paying attention to our intuition and non-verbal cues when making decisions at work is even more critical than ever. Right before the new moon in Pisces on March 10, Venus moves into Aquarius, encouraging us to be mindful of what we share and with whom regarding new ventures and upcoming career plans — timing is everything this month. On March 19, the spring equinox brings a powerful, energetic recalibration of equal parts light and darkness to aid us in re-centering ourselves and our goals. We wrap the month with the full moon in Libra on March 25. This full moon is also a lunar eclipse that, due to its Libra placement, will be particularly beneficial to those working in legal, communications, and tech-related roles.

All signs will receive new insights and a deeper understanding of where you’re headed in the next steps of your career this month. Pisces season is all about getting in touch with your most authentic self and bringing that out to the world — so read on to see what the cards have in store.
