Careers in MIS
  • National trends are solid
  • Unemployment rates were (eWeek 5/10/2007, Supply of IT Pros Down, Though
    Demand is Up)
  • Problem is low enrollment in IT education due to
    2001 downturn still skewing perceptions
  • Employment of computer and information systems
    managers is expected to grow 16 percent over the
    2006-16 decade…Employment of computer and

  • 40 of 550 executives polled in October 2008 by
    McKinsey indicated they were planning on
    increasing their investment in strategic IT in
    2009 even in the face of the economic turmoil.
  • Based on experiences from the dot-com bust in the
    early 2000s, many companies are less willing to
    undergo the "pain and disruption" of severe IT
    cutting, he said. Many companies realize that the
    cuts in IT spending in areas that could help
    businesses grow, become more productive, and more
    efficient aren't worth the savings

  • Report shows that in 2006, the high-tech industry
    continued growing, adding nearly 150,000 net jobs
    for a total of 5.8 million in the United States. 
    This growth is faster than the 87,400 jobs added
    in 2005.  These two years of growth represent an
    increase of four percent.
  • "We are pleased to see the rebounding of the tech
    industry," said William T. Archey, President and
    CEO of AeA.  "This is the second year in a row
    that tech industry employment has added jobs. 
    Not only do these jobs make critical
    contributions to the U.S. economy, but they also
    pay extremely well.  The average tech industry
    wage is 86 percent more than the average U.S.
    private sector wage.  (April 24, 2007)

  • Job Outlook      http//www.bls.gov/oco/ocos258.h
    tm Employment of computer and information
    systems managers is expected to grow faster than
    the average for all occupations through the year
    2014. Technological advancements will boost the
    employment of computer-related workers as a
    result, the demand for managers to direct these
    workers also will increase. In addition, job
    openings will result from the need to replace
    managers who retire or move into other
    occupations. Opportunities for obtaining a
    management position will be best for those with
    computer-related work experience an MBA with
    technology as a core component, or a management
    information systems degree and strong
    communication and administrative skills.

  • Job Outlook      http//www.bls.gov/oco/ocos258.h
    tm Despite the downturn in the technology sector
    in the early part of the decade, the outlook for
    computer and information systems managers remains
    strong. To remain competitive, firms will
    continue to install sophisticated computer
    networks and set up more complex Internet and
    intranet sites. Keeping a computer network
    running smoothly is essential to almost every
    organization. Firms will be more willing to hire
    managers who can accomplish that.

  • Our educational priorities are out of sync with
    the needs of our economy. Our graduates are not
    prepared to fill the jobs our employers are
    creating.
  • Employers in Washington are among the most
    technologically advanced in the world. Not
    surprisingly, the people who work here are also
    among the best-educated. We lead the nation in
    per-capita employment of engineers, and are in
    the top 10 states for per-capita employment of
    computer scientists, life scientists, technology
    workers and many other advanced fields.
  • Unfortunately, according to the National Science
    Foundation, Washington is 36th out of the 50
    states in per-capita production of bachelor's
    degrees. Even worse, we're 38th in graduating
    students in science and engineering fields, the
    very fields we lead the nation in employing. And
    when it comes to graduate students in these
    fields, we rank 42nd out of the 50 states.
