IT workers earn twice more than national average.

"The jobs market is alive and thriving in tech - so much so, there are 627,000 unfilled occupations.  The booming market grew 2% to about 7.3 million workers last year as the digital economy continued to flourish in jobs for software, cybersecurity and cloud computing, according to Cyberstates 2017, an annual analysis of the nation's tech industry by technology association CompTIA released Monday, April 17, 2017.

 

And the profession pays: Tech workers, on average, earned $108,900 in 2016 - more than twice the national wage of $53,040, CompTIA says.
