3 new collar jobs to discover

Coined in 2016, the term “new collar job” has joined the lexicon along with white-collar and blue-collar jobs, and has come to refer to a role played by someone in the tech industry, and often someone who may not have come through a traditional educational background – such as cybersecurity analysts, application developers, and cloud computing specialists.

Blue-collar roles are also on the rise: A recent study found that there are 32 million Americans without a college degree, but who have the skills to move into higher-income jobs. To go along with that, Google search interest in the term “learn coding” was 292% higher in January 2022 than it was in the previous 10 years.
