Demand for Technology Executives Rising
Job site JobFox.com is out with a new list of recession-proof jobs. The site says this is their first list since the financial bailout and "general consensus among companies and consumers that the economy is at or near a recessionary period."
The biggest mover in October from the previous month? Technology executives. JobFox lists IT leaders—defined as "management of the corporate IT function,including software managers for ISVs or consulting firms"—as the 16th most recession-proof job, up from 24th in September.
It also lists the median salary range for technology executives at $105K to $115K, with the desired salary range at $115K to $125K. (Research and consulting firm Foote Partners has more recent salary info here and Janco Associates has more on $100K+ IT jobs here.)
Other IT jobs making the cut: Network/system administration (No. 7, down one spot from September) and IT security (No. 20, a newcomer to the list).
Database administrators fell off the list, as did jobs in testing/quality assurance and business analysis.
