Although the nation”s unemployment figures stand at 9.5 percent, there are still jobs out there for those with the right skills, like experience with .NET or SharePoint.
Baseline magazine reports that according to Tom Silver, senior vice president for IT employment at Dice.com, there are a number of tech-related fields that are still looking to hire, even in this down economy.
One skill-set employers are seeking is SharePoint experience, which Silver says is in high demand as companies look for ways to increase collaboration.
"The enthusiasm for collaboration has reached fever pitch, and enterprises are in dire need of those who understand market-leader Microsoft SharePoint to implement, extend and troubleshoot the complicated tools in this software," he said.
Silver also says that .NET experience is hot as well with companies looking for workers with Microsoft Certified Professional Developer (MCPD) certification which shows that they have at least two years of experience in the field.
Despite the downturn in the economy, the use of ECM is expected to continue to grow as companies look for a low-cost solution to collaboration. A report earlier this year from FutureGov predicts that the ECM sector will grow 4 percent to 7 percent this year.
