Technology Skills in Demand: A Survey of Job Advertisements in New England.
Papp, Raymond
In order to identify the IS (Information Systems) skills in greatest demand in Connecticut and the New England region, classified ads for business-oriented IS positions appearing in the region's major newspapers during the summer of 1998 were analyzed. This paper highlights these findings and compares them to the skills employers from other regions have deemed important. Data are presented related to the number of ads for each city's newspaper by month, general job skills, information systems skills, education/training and years of experience, hardware platforms, operating systems, programming languages, software applications and specialized tools, and database systems. The paper also suggests curriculum implications for MIS (Management Information Systems) educators and directions for future research based on longitudinal assessment and comparison with other regions of North America.
