Brazil will have a deficit of approximately 530 professionals in the technology sector in 3 years, according to Brasscom
Currently, the country trains 53 new specialists per year; to meet the demands of the sector, 246,000 would be required. With the growing needs for business digitalization projects since the start of the Covid Pandemic, the Brazilian market should end this year requiring a total of 125,000 workers on the sector. Every year, the challenge of filling in technology vacancies is becoming gradually harder. Thus, with the rate of training 53 thousand professionals per year, it is likely that Brazil reaches a huge deficit of specialists by 2025. This data is taken from a new study by the "Association of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) and Digital Technologies (Brasscom) Companies" released this Wednesday (1).
The reason behind this enormous deficit is due to the accelerated growth of the technology and communications sector in Brazil in these recent years, and it is crucial as well as urgent that professional training expands at the same rate.
