Computer technicians in the U.S. can expect promising job prospects in the coming months, according to recent reports.
For instance, Dice.com recently reported that 18 states and Washington D.C. have fewer graduates with computer-related degrees than the total number of available jobs. In California alone, the number of open positions is almost triple the amount of new computer science graduates in the Golden State.
As a result, tech-savvy job seekers who have a background in computer software or information technology, should have little trouble finding career opportunities. According to NetworkWorld, Moody's Analytics has predicted that approximately 138,000 technology jobs will be added in 2011.
"The recovery, which started in the big areas like Silicon Valley, has now spread to all of these other places," said Alice Hill, managing director at Dice.com.
Furthermore, a new survey by the Illinois Technology Association reveals that the growth of the technology industry is helping reinvigorate the Prairie State's economy in the wake of the recession. According to the poll, which questioned more than 100 tech-related companies, about 40 percent of respondents said that they experienced revenue growth of at least 20 percent in the previous six months.
