IT Job Outlook

Adding Value…Growing CareersThe Employment Outlook in Today’s Increasingly Competitive IT Job

That’s the title of the study published by Information Technology Association of America. This is one of the best I’ve read. A little long, but the content is great.

Topics covered in the survey are:• Size of the IT workforce• Demand for IT workers• Best background for IT employment• Soft skills and other factors• Employee retention• Future sources of job

Here is a short excerpt:

Bottom line? Competitive pressure is an issue for employees and employers alike. To be successful IT workers must make themselves as valuable as possible to hiring companies. They must also make themselves the stewards of their own careers. Understanding the trends and directions shaping the IT workforce is one of the best ways to launch or sustain an information technology career.
