Excerpted from the Mexico Career Guide

Over the past few years, Mexico’s IT sector has registered high growth rates, and is now the third-largest exporter of IT services in the world. There are about 30 IT-focused technology parks throughout Mexico. The main hubs of IT activity are Distrito Federal (Mexico City) and State of Mexico, Nuevo Leon, Jalisco, Puebla, Veracruz and Sonora. There are more than 4,000 companies in Mexico’s IT industry.

Areas of Job Promise

Mexico’s IT outsourcing industry is growing rapidly, particularly for application services management, technology infrastructure, mobile application development and software testing. Major outsourcing hubs include Mexico City, Monterrey and Guadalajara. Mexico is the world’s third-largest provider of outsourcing services, behind India and the Philippines, according to one study.

Guadalajara will be Latin America’s first ‘Digital Creative City,’ with hopes that it will become the world’s leading Spanish-language media (film, television, videogames and multimedia) creation center.

Certification and Education Requirements

The following university degrees are most related to IT job opportunities: information technology engineering, electrical and electronic engineering, industrial and mechanical engineering, and computer systems engineering. A better job position can be obtained if a jobseeker also has certifications from Oracle, Microsoft, Cisco, Sun Microsystems or IBM (Project Management Professional).
