Firm in Exile Part 3 – “Wow!”
Are you a young professional in the IT industry? Do you feel like your skills are underutilized, underpaid, and undervalued? Where does that leave you when it comes to the IT career landscape and the future of your long-term financial security? Modern IT jobs are some of the most valuable, highest paying jobs available. But you need to know where to look and how to get them. By exploring how the IT industry works, how to break into it and how you can leverage the resources around you, you will find this highly profitable field more open than ever before.
Take a look at this finding from the Bureau of Labor Statistics:
“The United States is projected to need 1.5 million more software developers by 2020, with a majority of those developers entering the job market after 2018.”
It’s predicted that in the next 6 years the mean salary for an IT professional will climb to an astonishing $91,000 per year. That’s nearly double what it is right now! With all of this new growth, though, comes complexity. You’ll need to know what resources are available, how to access them and how to position yourself within them.
The IT industry is huge, dense and diverse. There’s a lot to learn, but most of it is out there – it just needs to be found. With the right tools, information and knowledge the opportunity exists for you to play an integral role in helping shape the future of IT.
