When you think about it, job hunting is kinda like dating. You’re looking for something (hopefully) permanent, with good perks to go along with the fact that it’ll make you happy in the long run. Sometimes, you end up in situations that leave you wanting more, but sometimes you find your, ahem, match made in heaven. You know what you want: stability, good energy, financial security, and happily ever after, and you would never settle for a significant other, so why settle for work?

Here at Betts, we understand how important it is to find your dream job in tech, so we’ve thrown together a list of the hottest industries using our exclusive data and insights from the job market. Right now, the job pool is hotter than ever, and we’ve got the receipts to prove it. Take a look at our ranking of the hottest industries for Go-To-Market talent that are hiring right now in Q2 and heading into Q3.


Think of our list as the unofficial official ranking of the hottest industries hiring right now— almost like the difference between Cabo and Atlantic City. You can definitely have fun in both places, but one is definitely more hopping than the other. We’re not saying one is better than the other, but we are saying that you should strike while the iron is hot, if you’re picking up what we’re putting down.


Before you find yourself running to swipe right, please keep in mind that this ranking is based on where we’re seeing the most growth for Q3. It’s not to say that the industries lower on our list are lesser, merely that they’re harder to find careers in, or not currently hiring as aggressively. Some might say that good things come to those who wait, while others prefer to play hard in their field. The choice is yours.


 If you’re an AE or SDR, then keep on reading to see if we can find you your prince charming.

Happily Ever After?

Who's Heating Up?

Top of the list, you can see that Betts Most Eligible Bachelor Industry is none other than Artificial Intelligence! Coming in at number one, they like long walks on the artificial beach, piña coladas, and salaries with an average of $118,125. To quote Paris Hilton circa 2004: that’s hot.


In a close second and our Miss Congeniality we have Data and Analytics! They’ve got it  all, ladies and gentlemen: solid career path, a love for crunching numbers, and salaries of $107,125! I can already picture the wedding, nothing but spreadsheets and tulle as far as the eye can see.


And third, but first in our hearts, we have FinTech looking to rekindle the romance! Offering salaries at $97,143, that’s enough to have your mom calling all the ladies who lunch to brag about your prospects!


Now our honorable mentions: Education’s flying close to the sun with salaries of $106,000; while Hardware and Consumer Goods are tied for $107k. Nothing better than to match with the one you love, am I right?

If You Like Piña Coladas…

Enterprise AEs, have we found the perfect matches for you! We’ve scoured the market and have come to the conclusion that once again, our top picks are Artificial Intelligence, Data and Analytics, and FinTech. However, in a surprise upset, Data and Analytics steal the crown for “a single career in possession of a good fortune” with a salary increase of $135,300! That’s enough to make us say ‘yes’ to their ‘dress’.


Making a splash in our waters is Platform, which is offering salaries of $150,000. I think the Jonas Brothers put it best when they said “I’m burning up for you, Platform”. Honorable mentions go out to Healthcare ($150,000) and to Transportation ($151,250), proving that although there won’t be as many job openings, but if you get one, we’d say put a ring on it.


Swipe right to see what SDRs are getting into.

A Match Made In Heaven

It’s every industry’s time to shine, and while the top three are dominating the hot and ready list, that doesn’t mean that other industries aren’t getting their day in the sun. While most salaries are within around the same region for SDRs (as the additional perks are intended to come in in the form of bonuses), there are a few that definitely stand out. Healthcare, for example, is just an industry, standing in front of talent, asking will you accept this $70k rose?


Again, our top three are hiring the most, but in terms of SDR salary, well, they’re pretty average. However, as they are rapidly hiring across the board for AEs and SDRs, with a little bit of hard work and a can-do attitude, you might be committing to a new title before you know it.

You Can Tell Everybody This is Your Job

As the saying goes, you have to kiss a few frogs before you find your prince charming, so we’ve narrowed down the frog pool to help you find the best possible job. Again, variety is the spice of life and your prince charming might just be on the list, no matter its ranking. Afterall, a catch is a catch is a catch, am I right?
