.NET or QA Professionals: Brush up Your Skills

If you are in .NET environment or a QA specialist brush up your skills. According to Spherion, a leading staffing, recruiting and workforce solutions provider in North America two tech jobs in high demand these days are .NET (dot net) developers and quality assurance analysts.

Read a full article "5 Careers: Big Demand, Big Pay" written by Jeanne Sahadi, senior writer.

A shortage of skilled professionals in Technology arena:

Developers who are expert users of Microsoft's software programming language .NET can make between $75,000 and $85,000 a year in major cities. (See correction.) If they pursue a job at a company that seeks someone with a background in a given field (say, a firm looking for a .NET developer experienced in using software related to derivatives) they might snag a salary hike of 15 percent or more when they switch jobs.
Those who work in software quality management, meanwhile, might make $65,000 to $75,000 a year and be able to negotiate a 10 percent to 15 percent jump in pay if they switch jobs.

Correction: The original version of this article incorrectly stated that .NET developers can make between $75,000 and $85,000 in major cities "when they're starting out." In fact, that's the salary range they can command after a few years on the job during which they become expert in using .NET.
