Demand soars for certain IT skills

There’s some good news if you’re an IT pro with experience in these areas – but bad if you’re in charge of hiring and retaining those people.

According to the latest report from IT job board Dice.com, found that, overall, job postings for IT positions are growing 40% year/year.

Not every type of IT job is seeing huge growth, though — much of the improvement is focused on specific skill sets.

The skills most in demand now, according to Dice:

  1. Cloud computing (job postings up 294%)
  2. Information security (+109%)
  3. JavaScript (+98%)
  4. Virtualization (+92%), and
  5. HTML (+85%).
