Recently I completed  AWS developer course. So can easily explain this. To maintain a growing career in the AWS field, you should focus on gaining expertise in AWS services and technologies, keeping up with the latest trends and developments in the industry, and continuously developing your skills through training and certifications.

Here are some steps you can take:

  1. Gain expertise in AWS services and technologies:  Start by learning the basics of AWS services, such as EC2, S3, and RDS, and then move on to more advanced topics like DevOps, Machine Learning, and Serverless computing. You can take advantage of AWS documentation, online courses, and tutorials to enhance your skills.
  2. Keep up with the latest trends and developments: AWS is constantly evolving, and it's important to stay updated on the latest technologies and features. Follow AWS blogs, attend conferences, and join online communities to stay informed.
  3. Obtain AWS certifications:  AWS certifications demonstrate your expertise in specific AWS technologies and can help you stand out in the job market. Start with the AWS Certified Solutions Architect - Associate certification, and then move on to more advanced certifications based on your interests and career goals.
  4. Gain hands-on experience: You can gain hands-on experience by working on AWS projects or building your own AWS solutions. This will help you to better understand the nuances of AWS services and develop your problem-solving skills.

In terms of salary, AWS careers can be quite lucrative. According to Glassdoor, the average salary for an AWS Solutions Architect is around $125,000 per year, while AWS DevOps Engineers can earn upwards of $140,000 per year. Of course, salaries can vary based on factors such as location, experience, and job responsibilities.
