The good news for IT workers: jobs are relatively plentiful and about to become more so.
The bad news is that salaries are stuck in low gear.
Unemployment for IT workers is 3.8% compared with the national average of 8.3%, reports Coomputerworld in its annual Salary Survey of over 4,000 people.
Plus 87% of IT hiring managers who took part in the survey said they will be hiring in the next 12 months.
The bad news is that open jobs aren't causing salaries for IT workers to rise much. Salaries increased a paltry 2% in 2012 ... with bonuses cut by 1%. Benefits like 401K matches have been slashed, too.
