IT Jobs That Need Filling

Even with thousands upon thousands of experienced IT pros looking for work, many information technology executives say they are finding it difficult to find talented workers in several key areas of their organizations. Maybe they’re not trying hard enough, or maybe they’re just looking in the wrong places or maybe there exists a mismatch between available workers and the specific jobs open in today’s marketplace. IT staffing firm Robert Half Technology recently asked the following question of 1,400 IT leaders, from companies with more than 100 employees: “In which functional area is it most challenging to find skilled IT professionals?” The answer was something of a mixed bag and one that leaves many questions about the state of IT hiring.  The execs mentioned a number of specific tasks that are going begging, with spots in networking, security and help desk support taking the top spots. Only a relatively small fraction said they could find all the talent they need. Where are you experiencing problems in the job market?

IT Management: How Your Salary Stacks Up Against Other IT Pros’

How does your current salary compare with national averages for technology occupations? It’s no secret that where you live in the country may have a big impact on what you make, but so can benefits and the cost of living in a given region. Salaries tend to be higher in the Northeast and West Coast cities, while cost of living tends to be lower in the South and Midwest. The following gallery is a clean look at 13 of the most common technology job titles and the national averages of those job titles based on years of experience from one year to 10 years and beyond. Job titles include Data Analyst, Database Administrator, Hardware Engineer, IT Analyst, Network Administrator, Network Engineer, Product Manager, Project Manager, Software Engineer, Systems Administrator, Systems Analyst, Systems Engineer and Technical Support Engineer. The data was provided by Glassdoor.com  based on a wealth of information shared anonymously by employees of major U.S. companies through Sept. 16. Glassdoor is unique in that its information on salary, benefits and views of company executives come directly from employee resources without the filter of gatekeepers.

IT Consulting: IT Contract Work Is Up, Permanent Hiring Slowly Increasing

Technology contractors appear to be seeing the best growth rates in hiring. For high-demand IT architecture and project management jobs, the salary picture is promising.

If you have in-demand skills, your asking price is probably above market rate—even with the slow growth of technology jobs, say hiring managers and recruiters polled in an August survey by online job board Dice.com.

Fifty-one percent of 1,350 IT decision makers polled said they are having to sweeten salaries for highly sought-after tech talent, though about 22 percent of workers are not willing to leave their current jobs. Caution about the economy is still in the air for employers and workers alike. But if you are receiving offers, don’t be afraid to try to get the best salary possible.

“Indeed, money dominates the enticement list, whether it’s higher salaries or sign-on bonuses sometimes necessary to help with relocation,” Tom Silver, senior vice president of Dice, said in a Sept. 8 statement. “But No. 3 on the list might surprise you: flexible work options, including telecommuting.”

The rise of telecommuting is one of those win/win situations for employers and employees alike: Companies get to save on office space costs such as leases, power consumption and insurance, and employees get to stay closer to their families, save on commuting costs and have a bit more hourly flexibility. Plus, employees will more likely start their days earlier thanks to a nonexistent commute.

“Technology jobs with a telecommuting option have doubled on the Dice site year [over] year,” Silver said. “Still, they remain less than 1 percent of the total jobs available. Corporations may want to consider giving more tech employees the option of telecommuting. Not only might such a policy attract and keep talent, it can offer real cost savings, as well.”

IT Staffing: Tech Jobs Grow During First Half of 2010

Job growth indicates that the technology industry is creeping out of the recession, according to a tech industry trade group.

The U.S. high-tech industry is showing signs of job growth and economic recovery, having added 30,200 tech jobs during the first half of 2010, according to the TechAmerica Foundation, whose data is based on numbers from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.

The TechAmerica Foundation, a nonprofit advocacy group for the technology industry, tracked job growth in three of four sectors of the technology industry between January and June 2010. The tech services sector added the most jobs (29,700) during that period, followed by the software services sector, which netted 14,200 jobs. Technology manufacturers ranked third, with 9,100 net new jobs between January and June 2010.

Communications services, which includes Internet and telecom companies, was the one sector of the technology industry that lost jobs during the first half of the year. It dropped 22,800 jobs.

“As one of the last industries to feel the effects of the recession, the technology industry now appears to be slowly turning the corner with the rest of the economy,” said Phil Bond, president and CEO of TechAmerica, in a statement.

But employment in the tech industry still has a ways to go before it gets back up to even early 2009 levels. As of June 2010, tech industry employment reached 5.78 million workers, compared to 5.99 million in January 2009.

How to Save U.S. IT Jobs

Most of the government activity related to creating or securing U.S. IT jobs, curbing offshore outsourcing, restoring America’s IT competitiveness, and limiting temporary visas for foreign tech workers has been more grandstanding than grand plans. Here, 10 outsourcing experts offer their proposals for restoring America’s IT labor force.

CIO  — While popular in the halls of Congress, the additional H-1 B visa fees tacked on to the most recent immigration appropriations bill drew mostly criticism outside of Washington. Some critics say it went too far; others say it didn’t go far enough. Most agreed that the move would do little to protect or create U.S. IT jobs.

Meanwhile, the more substantial H-1B and L-1 Visa Reform Act of 2009, introduced by Senators Richard Durbin and Chuck Grassley, has been in committee since April 2009and is expected to stay put through the remainder of the year.

Phil Fersht, founder of outsourcing analyst firm Horses for Sources, views Congress’s recent efforts to curb offshore outsourcing as “merely political grandstanding from the protectionist lobby that will only encourage further offshoring.”

As Americans prepare to celebrate Labor Day, CIO.com asked some leading minds—academics and analysts, outsourcing consultants and IT services executives—what the federal government ought to do to help create IT jobs and maintain U.S. competitiveness in the global technology market. Here are their proposals.

7 Skills Every IT Manager Needs to Survive the 2010s

InfoWorld  — As companies emerge from the recession, IT managers need to rethink their careers, especially as businesses recast IT’s role more as growing the business than running the operations. The old approaches to career growth won’t work. Instead, IT managers — and those who aspire to be managers — should focus on seven key skills for the new era.

Although no single set of skills can bulletproof your career in this decade and beyond, the foremost of these seven is the ability to continuously learn and possess a broad range of valuable tech and leadership capabilities, according to IT experts interviewed by InfoWorld.com.

[ Keep your IT and business skills sharp: Read Bob Lewis' IT management advice in InfoWorld's Advice Line newsletter. | Discover the 30 skills every IT person should have and which tech jobs are recession-proof. ]

“The survival skill for an IT manager is the ability to think about where you develop your career,” contends Kathryn Ullrich, an executive IT recruiter and author of “Getting to the Top” (Silicon Valley Press, 2010). “How do you stay on the cutting edge of tech so you’re continuing to develop your skill set? And career resilience? If you’re developing into a manager, director, or VP, it is about adding leadership skills.”

Although IT managers can’t be proficient in everything, they are expected to have fluency in major business and technology issues. “Unless they want to be order-takers, [IT managers] should have a point of view on the business — its strategy, its operations, and how it can be improved,” says Hank Leingang, an IT strategy consultant and former CIO at Bechtel and Viacom.

Many IT managers focus solely on mastering new tech skills to increase their value to their employers — a strategy that makes perfect sense, but only up to a point. Once you reach that point, you can damage your career by becoming viewed as only technically proficient and being perceived as unskilled in business planning and learning how to communicate and collaborate well with customers, coworkers, and service providers. But if you have a balance of these “hard” technology skills and “soft” business and people skills, you can go a long way toward insulating your career from recessionary woes.

IT Careers: There’s More to an IT Career Than Technology

As IT roles move up the value chain, companies like Johnson & Johnson, State Street, W.W. Grainger, General Mills and Xerox are looking to hire smart, tech-savvy, collaborative business professionals for 20- or 30-year multifaceted careers, not for IT jobs.

Computerworld  — As IT roles move up the value chain, companies like Johnson & Johnson, State Street (STT), W.W. Grainger (GWW), General Mills and Xerox are looking to hire smart, tech-savvy, collaborative business professionals for 20- or 30-year multifaceted careers, not for IT jobs.

“I believe the idea of hiring people for a job is well past,” says LaVerne Council, CIO at Johnson & Johnson. Instead, Council and other savvy IT and business leaders are more focused than ever on developing sophisticated job-rotation programs and flexible career paths that offer employees exposure and experience throughout the enterprise and significantly boost their opportunities to move up and branch out within the company over time.

“We have a talent management process where we help people coach their careers into various different roles — business to IT, and IT to the business. But we do it as well within IT, from infrastructure to applications to change management and to all of the other various functions within IT,” says W.W. Grainger CIO Tim Ferrarell.

So far, it’s a strategy that appears to be working. Ferrarell, for example, started out at Grainger in merchandising and product management, then progressed through marketing and strategy before moving to IT seven years ago. Grainger’s CEO, Jim Ryan, is a former CIO.
