The Ultimate Question About Identity

Art Coviello, chief executive officer and president of RSA Security Inc., and Scott McNealy, chairman and chief executive officer of Sun Microsystems, followed Gates with their own morning keynotes at the security conference that is drawing in 14,000 attendees this year, according to an RSA spokesperson.
"Who are you?" asks Coviello. "In the world of business, even the most basic transactions start with that question... We need to help people answer that question."

.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.
