The US Department of Labor agrees, predicting that between now and the close of 2014, total employment is projected to increase by increase by 18.9 million jobs or 13%. All of this is good news for professionals in the IT sector. Whether you are an experienced professional or a recent graduate, the employment outlook is positive. Within the IT sector some jobs will experience more growth than others. The Bureau of Labor Statistic lists four IT related jobs among the 10 fastest growing occupations – each of which will experience 20 percent or greater job growth by 2020.

#2 Network Systems Analysts (tied)

Determining how a computer system can best serve a business or organization's needs is a key role of a computer systems analyst. The job is among the most advanced IT careers because of the need to be able to think strategically and to interact with professionals with a variety of skill sets. It is also a role that offers great opportunity for advancement.

#2 Data Communications Analysts (tied)

Working to make sure that emails can be sent and received, employees can work together on the same document, and private information is protected from prying eyes are just some of the duties of a data communications analyst. Experienced data communications analysts often research and recommend network and data communications hardware and software. This job includes telecommunications specialists who deal with the interfacing of computer and communications equipment. More experienced analysts often supervise programmers.

#5 Computer Software Engineer

Professionals within this job title tend to focus on either systems or applications. Applications focused engineers develop, create, and modify general computer applications software or specialized utility programs. They also analyze user needs and develop software solutions and design software or customize software for client use with the aim of optimizing operational efficiency. Systems professionals research, design, develop, and test operating systems-level software, compilers, and network distribution software. Industries with a high demand for systems professionals include: healthcare, industrial, military, communications, aerospace, and general business. In both cases, engineers set operational specifications and formulate and analyze software requirements.

#8 Computer Analysts

Computer analysts manage science, engineering, business, and other data processing problems to implement and improve computer systems. Analysts also study user requirements, procedures, and problems to automate or improve existing systems and review computer system capabilities, workflow, and scheduling limitations. In some instances they may analyze or recommend commercially available software.

The integration of IT into all areas of business – from the management of healthcare records to employee payment systems – means jobs in the field are expected to increase, even during a time of slower overall economic growth. In other words, the future looks bright for IT professionals.
