The Robert Half 2017 Salary Guide for tech professionals was recently released. In addition to breaking down salary data for jobs in information technology, it also discusses the most in-demand skills and certifications. This doesn’t necessarily mean people with these skills are the highest paid, but that they will have the easiest time finding a job. If you want to make yourself more marketable, here are some skills and certifications you should consider.
- Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert (CCIE)
- Cisco Certified Internetwork Associate (CCIA)
- CompTIA A+
- Microsoft SQL Server
Also notable is that employers are increasingly looking for tech pros who possess soft skills as well – making them team players and better leaders.
With overall starting salaries predicted to rise 3.8 percent next year, and 61 percent of CIOs saying it’s challenging to find skilled IT professionals, tech pros with these skills will have strong negotiating power as they search for their next opportunity.
