These sectors are followed by tourism and then software sectors. Technology is in the first place in the results of the same research on the world. Information and communication technologies are in second place and energy, infrastructure and natural resources are in third place. In the upcoming period, it is thought that the talent needs picture will be in line with this picture. In addition to the sectoral view, it is also valid for all sectors in general. The exponential growth of e-commerce in all sectors in recent years has led to a rapid increase in the demand for managers with knowledge and experience in this field.
