aNewDomain.net — Staff.com recently produced an infographic on jobs that are now extinct due to advances in tech – pretty depressing. Fortunately, there are plenty of new jobs in the IT sector that promise high pay and relevance for years to come. Staff.com explains it all in this infographic: IT Jobs with the Highest Pay & Fastest Growth.
It’s chock-full of good news for skilled IT experts. Even in spite of the Great Recession that started in 2011, IT salaries have remained steady or increased. Job postings on Dice.com, the self-described “career hub for tech,” went up by 129 percent for Android developers and 190 percent for iPhone Developers in 2012. And, according to the infographic, mobile application development is indisputably the hottest area in IT. Mobile app developers make an average salary of $94,000 per year, and 292,200 jobs are expected to open up between 2012 and 2020.
Cloud computing came in at a close second as one of the highest-paying, fastest-growing areas in IT. Two out of three enterprises are currently planning, implementing or using cloud computing. It’s a rapidly expanding field, yet 1.7 million cloud-related jobs went unfilled worldwide in 2012. IT analysts with cloud experience, or those looking to add new skills to their portfolios, should definitely consider pursuing a career in this budding field.
Across the board, U.S. salary levels for IT jobs look promising for 2012 through 2020. Staff.com estimates that software engineers can expect to make $90,000 annually, with 270,900 new jobs to choose from in the next decade. Video game designers came in third for projected annual salary and new jobs available, at an average of $80,000 per year and 270,900 new jobs.
