The following infographic from Staff.com is interesting, outlining IT Jobs with the highest pay and fastest growth. Though it’s not specific to health IT jobs, it it worth a look to see how the IT job market is moving. As is expcted, mobile app development is the hottest market sector now and there are not enough folks to fill them.
Median salary for a IT staffer is about $90,000.
Cloud is the fastest growing sector with nearly two million jobs worldwide going unfilled in 2012. More than 65 percent of all enterprise organizations expected to add some sort of cloud service as of then and the numbers are likely increasing.
Finally, if you’re in IT for the money, work your way into management – about $110,000 annual salary – or a developer with an average annual salary of about $95,000.
Also, want to see how you compare to other IT workers around the world: There a nice graphic below outlining the salary disaparity globally. Think the US pays the most? You’d be bloody wrong! No even the top two, mate.
