Specialized skill sets – such as IT – have continued to help people find jobs in a difficult economy.
IBM sees business analytics as the next hot IT career. According to Tim Powers, businesses and governments are trying to figure out the challenge of making sense of data and turning that into greater performance and better decision-making. Companies need people to implement the technology into everyday business.
But on the other hand, data storage may be the biggest winner, according to Jordan Rayboy, CEO of Rayboy Insider Search. “Storage has always been a great place to be, because no matter how bad the economy gets, storage is always a sizable chunk of any IT budget. Every organization needs to store and manage their critical data. Storage administrators, architects and consultants will always be in high demand.”
