Programming and App Development: 2015’s Hottest IT Skill

2015-IT-Job-Trends-300x200What’s hot for IT professionals in 2015? InfoWorld recently published an article regarding the most desired skills for IT professionals next year. Their top skill? Programming/App Development. We agree – this is by far the most in-demand skill and has been for years.

In fact, demand from The Intersect Group’s client base has increased on the direct hire side of our business during the fourth quarter, a time which is traditionally slower because of the holidays.

Aside from programming and app development, we’ve also seen an increase in demand for project management skills, an area that has charged back to the forefront after a couple of years of stagnation and decrease. We credit this increase in demand to projects coming back online and investment ramping back up as the economy improves.

Additional skills we’ve seen increased requests for?

  • BI/Analytics
  • Mobile Apps
  • Big Data

  1. Programming/App Development
