With technology moves the world, or at least today’s world, because one of the best ideas in innovative thinking comes from tech professionals. Due to recession for the past two years their hard work was not equally compensated in monetary terms. Now things are on the rise again, especially the salaries for tech professionals. According to a salary survey from IT career site Dice, tech professionals have had 2% increase in their salary on average, which means from $79,384 to $81,327.
Besides getting paid their dues for technological taste, they also received bonuses which have increased 8%. Industries like telecom, hardware, banking, utilities/energy, and software are amongst the ones awarding bonuses most likely. But all of these perks do not come just as you enter a tech arena. In fact, they have been the privilege of those having sound knowledge, insight and experience in tech companies of at least 11 or more years. For all tech professionals out there, what they need is a steady growth and career focus to be able to reach this target of salary status.
According to this survey by Dice, the highest-paid skills were Advanced Business Application Programming (ABAP), Service Oriented Architecture (SOA), Extract Transform and Load (ETL), Weblogic, Java Database Connectivity (JDBC), Unified Modeling Language (UML), JBoss, and WebSphere. However, as any tech professional would know, there remains never a time when tech could be totally predictable. What could take lead next time, one never knows for sure in a world of technology that is ever changing.
