Career Moves To Make in 2019
unemployment is very low, but that doesn't mean you should let your skills stagnate.
If you work in IT, chances are pretty good that you are perfectly happy with your current job. But that doesn't mean you should put your career on autopilot.
In the 2018 Interop and InformationWeek IT Salary Survey, two-thirds of respondents said they were satisfied (45%) or very satisfied (24%) with their current jobs. Only 4% said they were very dissatisfied.
The numbers were even higher among IT managers and other executives: 49% were satisfied, 22% satisfied, and only 2% very dissatisfied.
Not surprisingly, very few of those surveyed were looking to switch employers. In fact, only 11% said they were actively looking.
That's bad news for potential new employers. Many of them are looking to recruit new employees particularly those with in-demand skills in areas like cybersecurity, DevOps, artificial intelligence (AI), big data, cloud computing, and blockchain.
Some say they can't find enough qualified applicants, even though they are offering salaries much higher than in years past.
For employees and job candidates, on the other hand, the outlook is great. Positions are plentiful, and pay is high and rising.
However, experts caution that IT professionals shouldn't ignore their careers just because the job market seems great right now.

Broadcasters earn a living through tiered viewer subscriptions, donations and sponsorship deals, with some of the world’s leading video game streamers such as Ninja earning millions a year.
While most streamers aren’t millionaires, there is still money to be made.
