The tech industry is a hot market for professionals across the globe. Whether you’ve been pursuing a career in the tech sector for a number of years or you’re just now considering it, the future of tech is looking pretty promising.

Case in point: From 2010 to 2020, computer-related occupations are expected to grow 22 percent, compared to the 14 percent projected growth of all other occupations. Plus, with the U.S. expected to lead employment growth in the tech sector, there’s no better time than now to break into the industry.

Cracking into the tech industry doesn’t have to be a mission impossible, though. The following infographic, compiled by InternMatch, an online platform connecting the best intern candidates and employers, showcases how to break into tech. Here are some key points to note:

  • On average, one-year-old tech startup firms create nearly one million jobs, while ten-year-old firms generate 300,000
  • Facebook pays interns an average of $6,056 per month
  • Software developer and database administrator positions are projected to grow more than 30% or more by 2020
