Demand and Salaries soar for IT Pros according to Janco
The President announced, "Janco's 2018 Mid-Year Salary Survey, which will be released in the next few days, shows that the median salary for all IT professionals is now $90,971 up 4.35% from the same time last year."
In addition, he said, "With 15,700 net new IT jobs in the last 3 months, we believe that many IT pros who have stayed with their companies thru the last several years will begin to look for new and better opportunities. IT staff attrition rates will be a major concern for many CIOs and IT Managers."
The CEO added, "A good example of the increased demand for IT Pros is the demand for Information Security Analyst with many working on GDPR and security complaince issues. In our review of over 104 large and mid-sized organizations, we found that fully one-third are not yet compliant with GDPR which is required to be in place by the end of May." He added, "With the increased dependence on the Internet and cloud processing the exposure that enterprises face can only be mitigated by filling that role with qualified individuals. As a result, salaries for experienced Information Security Analysts and the newly required position of Data Protection Officer (for GDPR) are sky-rocketing and are well over $100K." He added, "Preliminary results of our 2018 Mid Year IT Salary Survey show that the media salary for all IT professionals is now $90,971.
In support of that demand, Janco has released a 5 plus page job description for the Data Protection Officer and Information Security Analyst.
Janulaitis said, "Most of the C-level executives Janco has interviewed are expecting a booming economy. They are planning for extensive growth and expansion. The only part of the IT job market that is not doing well is that of telecommunications sector which has lost over 20,900 jobs in the last 12 months."
Janco is an international consulting firm that follows issues that concern CIOs and CFOs and publishes a series of IT and business infrastructure HandiGuides® and Templates including a Disaster Recovery/Business Continuity Template, Security Template, IT Job Descriptions, and its semi-annual IT Salary Survey.
