Ed Tittel Ed Tittel Profile: Ed Tittel

In a survey conducted by Dice and reported in Windows IT Pro on August 13, you will find a list of the most difficult skill sets or positions to fill in today’s IT job market. This list makes for interesting reading (and you’ll also find a list of the ten top technology markets in this story as well, for those pondering their chances of finding a job, here or there, depending on whether or not relocation is an option for those looking for work). Here’s the list of top skills as reported in the story:

  1. Security
  2. Virtualization
  3. Java/J2EE
  4. SAP
  5. .NET
  6. DBA
  7. Oracle
  8. Active US Government Security clearance, military or civilian
  9. Project Management
  10. SharePoint

To me, it’s interesting to see the mix of developer, professional, and topical area specialties that this list represents — especially SharePoint, which appears to be gaining significant mind and market share in IT of late. Be sure to check out this story, where you’ll also find a list of the “Top 10 Tech Metro Areas” (which kicks off with the stimulus spending capitol of the US, the DC/Baltimore metroplex) as well.
