Breaking news: Computer skills get you hired

Glen Weaver Profile: The Weave

This should come as no surprise, but technology jobs are relatively resistant to a junk U.S. economy, according to a new report from Jobfox, the job search site you’ve never heard of before.

The site analyzed its listing database from November 2007 up through July 7 to determine which jobs remained consistently in demand, even as gas prices doubled and rice left the “affordable staple” food list.

Six of the top 20 jobs – software design and development, networking and system administration, software implementation, testing and quality assurance, database administration and technology executive – are IT jobs.

Technology executive, which we take to mean not being a CIO but running a tech company, landed at 16 on the list with a note that there are “especially good prospects for those with cutting-edge mobile technology and Web 2.0 skills.”

No. 1 on the list is sales representative.
