Right now, the job market is outstanding for graduates in computer-related fields. There are many more jobs available than there are people to fill them. While many of these jobs require specialized skills or experience, there's probably one out there that's just right for you. Find out more.
Some jobs are particularly hot right now. In its September 27, 2004 issue, Canadian Business listed network managers and developers in the wireless networking sector at the top of its "hot jobs and cool careers" list. And then, in its May 2006 issue, Money Magazine ranked software engineer as Number 1 among its top 50 jobs in America and Computer/IT Analyst as Number 7.
The US Government has also gotten into the act. In the November 2005 Monthly Labor Review, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that, of the 20 fastest-growing occupations through 2014, five are in the computer science, information technology, and information systems arena. Networking systems and data communications analysts represent the occupation projected to have the second fastest job growth rate.
Finally, Information Week reported early in 2006 that "the IT labor pool—all people who consider themselves IT workers - grew 2% from last year, to 3.6 million, just shy of its 2001 high."
