I have been a software developer, software entrepreneur, computer scientist, and information technology professional since 1986. During this time, I have never gone more than 3 months without a job. And the one time I went 3 months was by choice. I decided to take a few months away to collect myself. We are told that our current economy is the worst in the history of the United States since the great depression. Yet, recently I have read from more than one source that the present economy is not dampening the digital economy. This recent article reports how they are plenty of IT jobs available.
If you are looking for a career, please consider a career in information technology. The field needs the diversity and it is a very rewarding, lucrative, and maybe even recession-proof choice.
