Employment expert Sarah Berry, author of Write a Perfect CV in a Weekend and How to Love the Job You Do, says that IT jobs look set to survive the credit crunch, explaining that IT professionals’ skills will keep being in demand.
She points to the growing use of websites and e-commerce and says that these areas will keep needing computer professionals.
Adding that IT jobs are “fairly secure at the moment," she advises IT employees to become proficient in these skills to safeguard their careers.
"Companies are going to be looking to their employees to have particular skills, rather than bringing in outside people or contractors to do it for them," she concludes.
