IT Jobs: A Total Crapshoot
The IT job market is not only challenged, but demand for certain skills comes and goes faster than NASCAR crew chiefs. What's hot today may be a dud tomorrow, says consulting firm Foote Partners.
The firm believes hiring today is based almost entirely on skills, not to fill a certain title or job opening. So if you're an expert in applications and Web development, you may land a sweet gig -- even if there's no real opening.
Other hot areas? SAP expertise, database and Cisco skills. But before you start training in these areas, remember: They may not stay hot very long.
