The Fastest Growing Industry in America: Computer systems design
and related services are expected to be in the top 10 fastest
growing industries in the economy, adding more than 600,000 jobs
in the United States by the year 2012, according to NAICS, the
North American Industry Classification System.
Positive news too for United Kingdom and Europe. Similar
predictions have been forecast for the United Kingdom and
western Europe whose computer service industries will inevitably
experience growth linked to the success of computer services
corporations in the United States.
Opportunities abound for New Entrants. Internet service
providers along with web search portals will account for a huge
64 percent growth in wages and salaries within the same time
frame. The opportunities for new entrants to train for
employment, contract work, and even new business start-ups
within this sector, can clearly be seen as outstanding.
A Shortage of Skills. According to a recent report, computer
related industries are expected to continue their rapid growth.
This aspect bodes well for specialists engaged within the
industry, as a shortage of professionals and skilled technicians
will inevitably result in a corresponding increase in
remuneration to attract more and more people into the industry.
Production versus Financial Growth. It follows that the balance
between output production and financial growth could be upset if
the availability of necessary skills, forming the workforce,
becomes scarce. That is why training organisations, along with
professional associations and other trade bodies, are focusing
more attention to marketing and promotion of various courses to
fill the void.
Considering the Full Facts. It is worth considering facts as
provided by many authoritative bodies including the Bureau of
Labour Statistics in the United States, where service Industries
are projected to account for most job growth, generating 21
million new jobs within just ten years. This has been due in
part, to the increased demand for services and the need for
automating service tasks.
In Britain, one source alone has recently notified us that it
has almost a thousand unfilled computer service jobs listed for
the UK and Europe. Professional and related workers enjoy the
best prospects, reflecting continuing demand for higher level
skills needed to keep up with changes in technology.
The Wheel of Fortune could spin for you too. Truly, the Computer
Services Industry will experience rapid growth this year, next
year and for the foreseeable future. Now is the time to take
advantage of the opportunities available from so many different
sources both in the USA and Europe. Freelance work and
contacting opportunities are readily available for those with
the necessary skills. The Industry will be a "Wheel of Fortune"
for those who take advantage of the opportunities now.
