Coined in 2016, the term “new collar job” has joined the lexicon along with white collar and blue collar jobs, and has come to mean a role that’s done by someone in the tech industry, and often someone who may not have come in by a traditional educational path — such as cybersecurity analysts, application developers, and cloud computing specialists.
Blue collar roles are on the rise, too: A recent study established that there are 32 million Americans without college degrees, but who have the skills to transition to 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 for the previous 10 years.
