Transcript of "2010 Tech Career Outlook"

  1. 1. 2010 Tech career outlook<br />Frank Alaniz<br />Missouri Career Centers<br />
  2. 2. Job Market on the Mend<br />After starting the year with the heaviest downsizing in nearly a decade, the number of announced job cuts declined dramatically in the second half of 2009, providing hope for an eventual job-market turnaround. <br />Sunday, January 3, 2010 <br />The Record<br />SPECIAL TO NORTH JERSEY JOBS<br />
  3. 3. Latest from BLS<br />According to the latest available data from the BLS, employers hired an average of 4.1 million workers per month, between July-October. More-over, there were nearly 2.2 million additional job openings as of the last business day in October.<br />
  4. 4. Renewed Job Creation<br />According to the Challenger outlook, some of the areas that will begin to see renewed job creation in the new year include health care, information technology, government, financial services and energy.<br />John A. Challenger is CEO of <br />Challenger, Gray & Christmas, Inc., <br />
  5. 5. What do these Figures Represent?<br />Of course, these figures represent just a tiny fraction of the hiring and available jobs out there. Even newspaper and online help-wanted ads do not tell the whole story when it comes to hiring and job availability. In fact, help-wanted ads probably represent less than half of the actual job openings and possibly as little as 20 percent. <br />
  6. 6. Hiring / Recruiting Changes<br />
  7. 7. 2010 Tech Career Outlook<br />After a brutal finale to a tough decade, is there hope for better IT careers?<br />There's good news and bad news.<br />By Galen Gruman, InfoWorld December 31, 2009<br />
  8. 8. Bad News<br />The bad news is that IT jobs took a disproportionately high hit in job cuts in 2009. <br />
  9. 9. Good News<br />The good news is that there are several pockets of demand for skilled IT workers, even if many jobs such as those in support and systems administration remain under threat. <br />
  10. 10. Examples<br />For example, demand for cloud-oriented tech experts is way up. Tech placement firm Robert Half Associates has projected it sees strong demand for network administrators, security managers, and systems engineers. <br />
  11. 11. Other hot areas are :<br />Software architects, <br />Java and .Net/C++ developers, <br />Quality assurance pros and project managers,<br /> Agile-capable developers, <br />and SAP consultants. <br />Mobile app development has also gotten a lot of buzz, though whether this is a profitable area or long-term need remains to be seen. <br />
  12. 12. Missouri Projections <br />Computer Systems Analysts (4,564)<br />Network and Computer Systems Administrators (3,455)<br />Computer Software Engineers, Applications (3,397)<br />Network Systems and Data Communications Analysts (3,310)<br />Computer Software Engineers, Systems Software (2,346)<br />Computer and Information Systems Managers (1,351)<br />Database Administrators (872)<br />
  13. 13. 2020 VisionWhat will Tech Look like in 10 years<br />It's kind of hard to believe the first decade of the third millennium is almost over. Seems like only yesterday we were pulling out our hair worrying about Y2K; now we worry about whether enough total strangers are following the minutiae of our lives on Twitter and Facebook.<br />By Robert X. Cringely<br />Created 2009-12-31 03:00AM<br />
  14. 14. Here's how the world will look in the year 2020 (your reality may vary):<br />The last 10 years have been dominated by the rise of Google and social networks, the surprising resurgence of Apple, and the gradual decline of Microsoft and Yahoo. What will the next 10 years hold? <br />
  15. 15. Spacebook<br />Having finally registered all 11.5 billion humans on the planet, Facebook will open up its social network to alien races .<br />Also: Company co-founder Mark Zuckerberg will celebrate his 36th birthday by shaving for the very first time<br />
  16. 16. Third Lives<br />People will be born, raised, attend school, get married, get divorced, get fat, grow old, die, and never leave their keyboards, thanks to a new generation of realistic avatars living inside virtual worlds .<br /> And no one will think that's utterly pathetic.<br />
  17. 17. Googleheads<br />The company's long-awaited gAmygdala implant which links Android users' brains wirelessly to their portable devices, will finally be ready for consumer testing. <br />Google's Brain Cloud service, however, will remain in beta for another 7 years.<br />
  18. 18. Microbrains<br />Microsoft will release its gAmygdala competitor, Internet Explorer 17 With Live Bing Brain Implant 1.0. <br />Two weeks later, it will release a firmware update to patch a bug that intermittently causes peoples' heads to explode.<br />
  19. 19. Twitterverse<br />The world's most popular microblog will celebrate its 1 quintillionth tweet by sending the first 140-character messages to and from Mars.<br /> They will, of course, be about astro-cats.<br />
  20. 20. Apple iMortal<br />Near the end of the next decade Apple will announce iMortal, a new app for the iPhone 7GSS that allows users to store an entire lifetime's worth of thoughts and memories on the device so that they can be accessed by future generations. <br />The first person to become iMortal, of course: Steve Jobs.<br />
