A new article published by the Associated Press has good news for people looking for a job in technology. High-tech jobs, especially positions for individuals with IT certifications, are on the rise. According to the article, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics rates job prospects as excellent for IT positions “ranging from network administrators, software engineers and programmers to computer manufacturers, operators and repairers.”
Sources in the article recommend certifications including CompTIA A+, Network+ and Security+ for those interested in taking advantage of the opportunities in the field.
Additionally, the article indicates that the opportunities aren’t limited to high-tech companies. IT positions in the medical field are likely to increase due to the ramping up of online, confidential medical records and documentation. “Feeding that growth is the more than $25 billion that the federal government plans to spend to expand use of health IT by 2014.” Positions that should increase in demand include network systems analysts, data communication analysts and software engineers.
