Want to hear some good news today? Based on the annual salary report from the Robert Half Company, IT salaries are headed upward going into next year. That’s not just a few business leaders giving their opinion, it’s based on a survey of over 1600 CIOs. See, I told you I had some good news.
As you read the Salary Guide, make sure you pay attention to which titles are receiving the highest boosts in salary. That should give you a good indication of what areas business leaders deem important going into 2012.
So, what fields are hot? You can find it all in the 2012 Salary Guide over at Datamation.com. One note: It’s not surprising to see that Mobile Application Development is the hottest field going into 2012. It is interesting to note the wide range of skills that a mobile app developer could possibly have.
Here’s a better option: Instead of bringing in multiple skill-sets for your mobile apps, why not just develop mobile web apps? They look and feel nearly the same and you only need one set of skills to reach all platforms. Better yet, you could just use this new method and develop one web app that looks and feels native every where. If you ask me, that approach makes much more business sense.
