Unprecedented demand for IT skills

0 comments

IT professionals are in the fortunate position of having a highly desirable skill set in an environment where there isn’t much competition.
The online job market is booming with jobs from administration to engineering and manufacturing jobs. But there jobs are actively sought, and competition for them is fierce.
The IT industry stands out as having strong demand for skills and only a handful of candidates that meet the requirements.
According to CareerJunction, as many as one out of four jobs advertised online is IT-related.
“We’ve seldom seen this type of continuous growth in demand for a particular skill set in the last year and a half,” says Paul Byrne, MD of CareerJunction.
“The last year alone has seen a growth in IT jobs of more than 18%.”
Byrne adds that software developers are at the top of recruiters’ most wanted list, followed by business analysts, system and network administrators, and system analysts.
