IT staffing services are in increasingly high demand among companies looking to implement new technologies, such as cloud computing, streamline operations through processes like bring-your-own-device (BYOD) and undertake Big Data projects. In fact, the industry continues to add jobs, with the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics reporting that 18,200 positions were added in the sector in June.
As opportunities increase and competition grows, IT professionals are likely to see salaries rise concurrently with demand. With this in mind, researching the market to find the perfect position should be on every jobseeker's to-do list. A recent overview from Mondo outlined some of the most highly paid careers for IT experts, reporting that the sector is seeing year-over-year growth, which can equate to six-figure salaries for some individuals.
Additionally, the study noted that data analysts, help desk senior staffers and technical writers have seen their salaries increase by 18.3 percent, 15.4 percent and 14.3 percent, respectively, between 2012 and 2013, with HTML5 developers' salaries hitting the six-figure range.
A separate study from Bluewolf noted that the rise in salaries indicates the evolution of the skill set IT professionals are expected to offer companies. The skills needed to gain these positions are increasingly advanced. However, with the right training and certification, applicants can contend with an increasingly competitive job pool for top roles.
"The market is hot for IT talent and companies are scrambling to implement new flexible technologies, leaving IT deliberating over how to design both their technology and their workforce for scalability," Michael Kirven, co-founder of Bluewolf, said in a statement. "This continued high demand of IT only logically leads to an increase in those salaries."
IT staffing solutions can help all players in the tech world. Job applicants can work with experienced recruiters to find the perfect position that will utilize all of their skills and qualifications. Companies, on the other hand, can be connected to a wide array of tech professionals who can help them take their operations to the next level by leveraging data, improving security and enabling greater competition.
