      Information on the Field of Information Technology 

      According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), jobs in information technology are growing well above average rates of all other occupations, with 12% growth expected from 2014 to 2024. This growth is no big surprise, as technology continues to flourish with new websites, applications, and products launching constantly. The BLS predicts that the IT industry will add 488,500 new jobs by 2024.

      The "Internet of Things," or web-connected products, constitutes a major development in the information technology industry the same way mobile apps did a few years ago. Now, it is common for baby monitors to be viewable through a personal online stream, and to be able to set home alarms, start the coffee brewing, or turn heat on and off remotely, by using web-based apps.

      The other powerful motivator that will contribute to job growth in the IT field is the advent of cloud computing. There is currently high demand for Cloud architects, Cloud software and network engineers, Cloud services developers, Cloud system administrators and engineers, Cloud consultants, and Cloud product and project managers.

      The BLS reports that the median annual salary for IT jobs, as of May 2015, is $81,430. Among the individual IT disciplines, the median pay for Computer and Information Research Scientists is $110,620, for Computer Network Architects: $100,240, for Computer Programmers: $79,530, for Computer Support Specialists: $51,470, for Computer Systems Analysts: $85,800, for Database Administrators: $81,710, for Information Security Analysts: $90,120, for Network and Computer Systems Administrators: $77,810, for Software Developers: $100,690, and for Web Developers: $64,970.
