A tech graduate is now a tech millionaire.
It’s a sign of how well-connected young people are in Scotland that nearly a quarter of those who applied to university for a degree in computer science or engineering in the past 12 months have been employed in the tech sector.
A report by the University of Dundee shows that the number of students who had applied for a job in IT has increased by more than 10,000 in the same period.
More than half of those are now graduates.
The number of graduates in the IT sector is up by more then 1,000 since 2011.
The growth has been driven by a number of factors.
There is a huge demand for the skills needed to work in technology, with the number in the sector expected to rise by 2 per cent a year in the next five years.
There is also an influx of young people who want a new challenge, with employers increasingly turning to them for training.
In the past year, there has been a noticeable rise in job openings for graduates, with more than 200 graduates applying for jobs at tech firms.
One young entrepreneur from Glasgow said he had taken on a role at a technology company after graduating in the summer.
He was looking for a software engineer position.
The IT industry has attracted graduates with a range of different backgrounds, including those who are tech professionals and IT professionals who are not.
The young entrepreneur, who does not want to be named, said he wanted to be involved in a technology industry.
He had been a teacher for 12 years and had taken part in a course in IT.
It is a great place for young people to start careers in technology and he is thrilled he was able to do so.
“I can see how it will benefit my future and I can see myself becoming a technology professional one day.
I am looking forward to being able to help the people who come to me and work with me to make this technology industry a success,” he said.
The report said the industry is “still a long way from being a fully recognised profession in Scotland”.
But it has grown rapidly in recent years, with almost one in five graduates in IT today, with a growing number of young graduates looking for jobs in the industry.
Some employers are looking for graduates to take on jobs in other areas.
A recruitment company that works with universities and employers said it was seeing a steady increase in applications for IT jobs across the country.
The company, which has a range in the technology sector, said it had been recruiting in the last two years.
It was offering graduates opportunities to work with employers and recruit from outside the industry, such as technology firms.
It has also seen an increase in opportunities for students to work for IT companies.
However, a report published last year by the Scottish Business Council has suggested the sector is in a slow recovery.
It said only 4 per cent of all IT graduates had found jobs in technology companies in 2016, down from 9 per cent in 2015.
And the report suggested that there was a lack of experience in the field, with only two per cent graduates having held jobs in IT in 2015 and 2016.
It also said the number and type of jobs available to graduates had decreased in recent months, with just one in eight graduates in 2016 holding a job.
However the report pointed out that there are some jobs available in IT and there were some jobs for graduates in other fields.
It urged employers to continue to promote the role of IT in the future.
“We need to invest in the skills that young people will need as they grow up in a world where technology is a key part of our lives,” it said.
It added that a new generation of young technology workers was emerging, with over half of them now studying computer science.
“It’s great to see that young Scotland is becoming more entrepreneurial,” said James.
