If you’re looking for a new job or a pay increase, try learning Linux. Your first response might be, "What is Linux?" Good question.
Linux is an operating system for computers, like Windows. It was originally designed to provide users with a free or low-cost operating system, but is now used by many businesses due to its efficiency and speed. Many mobile phones, GPS devices, and even the New York Stock Exchange run on Linux.
And, like all things tech, knowledge of Linux is in demand. While many jobs are seeing slow wage growth, tech wages are booming. Employers in the field of technology and computer science are hiring but finding it challenging to fill the roles with workers that have the correct skills and experience.
