IT Jobs and Salary Trends

Many IT professionals may be in for a disappointment this year when it comes to raises. Robert Half Technology projects an average decrease in pay of approximately 1.3% across the job market as a whole. However, if you have a secondary specialization in areas such as security, media, global business expansion, or network administration; you may just be in a better position if the predicted trends are correct.

The IT security field is the place to be in 2010. It is advised to obtain security-related certification as it continually increases in pay and value with new government security requirements. Corporations dividing operational security and strategic risk management tasks is also a huge driving force behind the growth of the field. Starting salary ranges for an information systems security manager are between $96,000 and $130,000.
