U.S. CIOs and other tech executives are feeling optimistic about prospects for IT jobs and salary growth in 2017, according to a recent survey from Janco Associates. Thousands of domestic technology jobs are expected to be added every month, findings show. And nearly all levels of IT professionals—from staffers to middle managers to senior executives—will see compensation increases of about 5 percent or higher. So, what's driving these trends? There's the ongoing demand for technology innovation—along with the skills to support it—and some believe that the new president's promise to improve the nation's employment picture will contribute. "If, as the new administration says, jobs will be brought back to the U.S. … the tax system improved and infrastructure spending increased, that should result in a significantly improved economic picture," said M. Victor Janulaitis, CEO of Janco Associates. "With the stimulus and constraints proposed by the new administration, there will be greater need for U.S.-based IT resources." More than 125 CIOs took part in the research.
