Career Advice

If you are reading this, I assume you are already in some form of IT. But just because you specialize in one area doesn't mean you are wedded to it for life. In fact, with outsourcing and the cloud, it pays to be nimble. Better nimble than out of work.

In that spirit I give you details on next year's hottest IT careers: U.S. News & World Report lists network architects, with an average salary of $73,250 (if you are making less, go bug your boss) as the top IT career, followed by software engineer, systems analyst and, in a surprise to me, help desk.

Are you thinking of switching specialties for a few more bucks? If so, shoot me a note at [email protected]
