From the United States Department of Labor's Bureau of Labor Statistics Occupational Outlook Handbook, 2008-09 Edition, "the computer / information scientists and database administrators occupation is expected to grow 37 percent from 2006 to 2016. Employment is expected to increase much faster than the average as organizations continue to expand their use of technology. Workers must be able to learn new technologies quickly for these constantly evolving occupations."


* In the Wall Street Journal's (Dec 23, 2008) article titled, "Avoiding the Ax: Where the Jobs Are", Mr. John Zion, president of eastern U.S. operations at staffing firm Robert Half International Inc. says, "...in bad times, [some] functions become even more essential. Information technology is one such area. There are more than 62,000 employment ads currently listed on the technology job site Dice.com. IT positions are plentiful -- even at companies that outsource jobs overseas."

The (Dec 23, 2008) WSJ article also states, "the accounting, information technology, actuarial-science and health-care fields are expected to grow faster than the 7% to 13% average rate for all occupations by 2016, according to the Labor Department."
