View as: Print Mobile App Share:

Information technology (IT) hiring could be about to resurge in 2011, according to the recent Robert Half Technology Salary Guide 2011. Professionals who can help a company become more efficient and grow will likely be in the highest demand. The yearly guide discusses the roles and skills that will be in greatest demand and provides salary ranges for various IT positions.

The economic downturn has forced companies to focus on projects and employees that deliver a high return on investment and can help manage assets. Companies are starting to resume postponed projects and launch new initiatives, increasing the demand for application developers, .Net developers, systems administrators, database administrators, and desktop support professionals. Demand for people with skills and experience in programming, information security, infrastructure support, business mind-set, and enterprise resource planning (ERP) are anticipated to be high.

Pay increases are expected for positions such as Web designers, ERP technical developers, business intelligence analysts, data modelers, and network managers. Industries such as business services, transportation, and health care are expected to have the greatest need for IT professionals.
