CNNMoney.com is reporting that the Webmaster is back and salaries are up. The online report also reflects that IT professionals with Project Management Skills is one of the hottest IT jobs in the U.S. To comment on this, I’m on the phone with Bill Cullifer, WOW Executive Director and the WhyITNow.org initiative.
Bill, can you tell us what’s changed from the slump of a few years ago?
“Brent, what’s changed is that business, industry and managers that hire Webmasters and IT Managers have an improved understanding of the skills required and the IT and Web applications that help drive their bottom line.”
That’s great Bill. Any suggestions for those looking to get jobs in this Space? ?
“Brent, my biggest concern with the surge in popularity is that the “get rich quick” training companies selling short term training options will come out of the woodwork again. I caution individuals to consider training programs that offer the incremental training to land you a job yet will lead you to defined degree level programs within IT that promote life long learning.”
Thank you Bill. We’re certainly in it for the long haul for our readers and listeners.
