Welcome to the IT Jobs Index

As a first-ever initiative, we are proud to publish and host the latest employment index in the field of information technology (IT). Here you can find the latest labor information and future trends for high growth categories of employment in the United States. This IT jobs report is taken from a sampling of major employment websites, our proprietary data and is compiled by our research team. This compiled research is focused around a particular skill-set, so it’s inherently quite targeted yet easily digestible at a glance. We’ll be adding more information to this report, so stay tuned.

Background

Information Technology (IT) is the general term to describe the immense industry of computer technology and computer networks both online and offline, included but not limited to; software, hardware, database, data storage and the retrieval, analysis, communications, insight and all information created, stored and utilized from all its functional activities. Undoubtedly, Information Technology (IT) has been the cornerstone to one of the most significant industries known to mankind, and in workforce history. In previous decades, the state of information technology was largely focused on performing work more efficiently through leveraging computer systems. This was done largely with hardware, and software applications to perform tasks. While that will always be a very relevant aspect of the industry, the attention in the past decade has been more so on making sense of the data resulting from these systems. It raised many data-related questions on how to best collect, store, retrieve, make sense of, protect (and ultimately) make use of data in meaningful ways. That leads us to where we are today with information technology as we head into the next frontier.

The Future

The massive industry of information technology and its extensive layers is undergoing constant change and evolution. We are heading into a new era where the surrounding focus tends to be on machine learning and artificial intelligence. IT jobs abound in almost every sub specialty imaginable, and talented professionals and organizations are inventing and experimenting with machine learning and artificial intelligence to (at first) perform repetitive tasks and applications, then more cognitive decision making will follow. It’s uncommon to even have a conversation about IT that doesn’t also involve AI. The backbone of AI is somewhat traditional from the perspective of infrastructure, but the layers of logic and the its ability to process information, learn and make decisions around that data it is what makes machine learning and AI the next frontier. Where this will eventually lead is anyone’s best guess, but for certain there is an enormous amount of potential in machine learning and AI to be harnessed and understood. More information on machine learning jobs can be found here. Now let’s take a look at career related considerations for IT jobs and employment in the field.
