Another survey which confirms that the IT folks are happy in life and outsourcing is not a worry! Most IT folks are fighting it by upgrading their skills!
The survey found the technology career path to have strong appeal among technology professionals, based partially upon their high levels of job satisfaction, with an
overwhelming 94 percent of those surveyed reporting satisfaction with their current positions. The drivers of the high satisfaction among this group include job enjoyment
(40 percent), good pay (34 percent), “liking” their field (34 percent), and the ability to be creative (23 percent). The survey also revealed a high likelihood of tech professionals to
recommend their field to others (88 percent).
“The technology job market has improved significantly since 2004. Job postings on Dice.com alone have increased 119 percent in the last two years,” said Scot Melland,
President and CEO of Dice Inc. “The survey findings demonstrate that the technology field is not only growing, but it is thriving as an attractive career path for professionals.”
The survey also found that technology professionals understand the value of keeping their skills up-to-date, with 82 percent “very” or “somewhat” concerned with this issue.
Comparatively, only 41 percent are concerned with their job being outsourced and 37 percent are concerned about being laid off due to budget cuts.
