Professionals who work with IBM WebSphere technology know that the skills needed to succeed on the job are ever-evolving. To stay ahead in the highly-competitive tech marketplace, WebSphere architects, administrators and developers need to constantly educate themselves on the newest up-and-coming technology.
To help you get ahead, WebSphere Insights interviewed top IT recruiters, discussing what skills are most in-demand and what salaries WebSphere professionals can expect to earn. While the technology job market has recovered much more quickly than many other industries, workers and businesses remain cautious despite the improvements, according to Tom Silver, Senior Vice President at Dice.
“It’s a tight market,” Silver says. “The unemployment among tech professionals is running around half the national average—about three percent—which is pretty good. But turnover by historical standards among tech professionals is below average. People are not as bold as they would have been in the last tech boom in voluntarily moving and changing jobs. People are a bit more measured.”
But IT professionals with the right skills can stand out and excel, he says. Technologists should boost their skills in cloud, mobility, and big data along with the fastest-growing skillset—security.
“Companies want to use data more strategically and analytically to help businesses be more competitive, and do that in a secure fashion,” he says. “Companies are fearful of information being taken or abused, so data security becomes increasingly important.”
