Why Get Certified?
American companies expect to create 1 million
new information technology jobs this year, an industry
survey finds. About a third of the openings will be for
technical support workers, who help companies install,
maintain and troubleshoot new high-tech equipment, predicts
the study, released by the Information Technology Association
Companies are worried about filling the new
positions, the survey found. Based on the qualifications
of current applicants, they estimated that more than half
of the openings, about 500,000, may be difficult to fill.
''IT workers represent a much bigger slice
of the total work force than previously imagined and,
as we have stressed over the years, the nation's economic
future is tied to the availability of appropriately skilled
workers,'' said the association's president, Harris Miller.
Behind tech support, the fastest growing
jobs categories are database developers and administrators;
programmers and software developers; and people who design
and manage Internet sites. Among other categories included
in the survey were technical writers, digital media specialists
and systems integrators.
New Jersey Carrer Center members who helped pay for the study
included companies such as Microsoft Corp., Cisco Systems
and Oracle Corp. It was conducted between December and
February by Market Decisions Corp., and has a margin of
error of plus or minus 3 percentage points.
