    Hot Jobs & Skills for 2007

    2007 promises to be a strong year for IT job seekers with the right technical skill sets. The first wave of baby boomers turned 60 in 2006, and while these IT veterans are beginning to retire, the number of people entering the computer field is declining rapidly. According to the Education Research Institute at UCLA, interest among prospective students in computer science as a major dropped 70 percent between 2001 and 2005. This massive decline in the supply of future IT workers, combined with the aging IT population, might spell trouble for U.S. global competitiveness down the road. But it’s good news for techies who wish to move up within their IT departments or for those who seek entry-level IT jobs...

      Good find Trip.

      Can give people an idea where to head when studying as it always pays to specialise (in the right area!). However its a pity the article was written in the states as i feel the situation is slightly different her in th UK. While there is a slight shortage of skills i dont think the wages have risen to encourage people into IT respectively.

      And this may explain why i cant get a job in helpdesk lol :twisted:
