The economy has improved for graduates hitting the field with computer science degrees. According to Dice.com, companies are planning to hire almost 20% more graduates this year.
Last year was tough for many people trying to get in, graduates and experienced workers alike. Employers were averaging roughly 40 applicants for every open position. That average has dropped significantly to about 21 applicants this year. With job creation running at a generally consistent clip for some time, graduates are starting to see some light at the end of the tunnel.
Demand for skills reaches across the IT field. Networking and storage skills are being sought by those gearing up to be a Cloud vendor. Security skills are in demand in both corporate and government. Application developers for web, mobile and software are finding homes in small as well as enterprise-level employers.
