CompTIA Peers Into IT Employment Crystal Ball


CompTIA is making predictions about the future of IT employment.The COVID-19 pandemic has been hugely disruptive to many people's employment. The blow has been cushioned somewhat for many in IT — most technology jobs are not directly connected to the devastated service sectors (travel and leisuire, dining and entertainment, etc.) and many IT job roles that exist with employers outside the technology industry are essential to other company functions. A post made at the end of last week to the official blog of tech industry association CompTIA sizes up the industry outlook and, with information from various sources, attempts to predict what lies ahead. For example, based on CompTIA's own Cyberstates IT employment research, blogger Seth Robinson reports that the most job growth came in the IT support and cybersecurity analyst professions over the decade from 2010 through 2019.  Past performance, as they say, is no indication of future results, but there is value in looking backward to gain insight about what lies ahead. Robinson also assesses information passed along by tech employment facilitator Dice.
