    Boom Times

    There will be 685,000 new tech jobs created by 2022, with 18% annual growth in employment. That tops the 10.8% growth in other industries.

IT professionals should benefit significantly from a surge in job creation over the next few years, according to research published by Modis IT Staffing. The accompanying report, the "2015 Salary Guide for IT Professionals," predicts that the growth of new technology jobs being created will rise at a far higher rate than overall employment growth. In addition, women will account for a greater share of the overall IT workforce. It's also encouraging to learn that a significant number of U.S. men and women serving overseas consider technology the top vocational choice for their post-military careers, according to the survey. The guide breaks out a number of key IT niches for job growth—along with average salary figures within each niche—and we're presenting some of those statistics in the slideshow below. As a bonus, we're also including best practices for getting that perfect and well-paying tech job. Modis has based its findings on information obtained through a partnership with CareerBliss and its internal data, as well as that from local clients and IT professionals in the market.
