IT Job Satisfaction on the Upswing
A survey from CompTIA, a training and certification association for channel and IT pros, found that a majority of IT professionals are satisfied with their jobs (79%). This number is up from 73% in 2015.
In addition, InformationWeek and Interop ITX recently conducted their own survey of IT professionals and found that 95% of respondents would recommend IT as a career to young people, with 65% saying that it’s a great career option.
“[IT] Job satisfaction is jumping,” says Nancy Hammervik, executive vice president of industry relations for CompTIA. “A lot of [IT pros] are saying, for the first time they’re getting recognized for the work they’re doing.”
Hammervik believes increased job satisfaction may be due in part because cutting-edge issues such as cybersecurity are giving IT pros greater exposure in the business.
When it comes to cybersecurity projects, “they’re not just an IT guy building a solution anymore,” says Hammervik. “They’re contributing to the business. I think [working on cybersecurity projects] is elevating their status and making them feel appreciated and needed.”
