.Net skill demand likely says Spherion

Research by recruitment and training company Spherion suggests that experience in Microsoft's .Net platform could be the most in-demand IT skill in coming months.

Spherion has measured skills sought by employers and enrolments in professional IT and professional development courses across Australia and New Zealand from January to March 2003. It says there is growing interest in training for .Net and IT Infrastructure Library (ITIL, a standard and methodology for establishing IT management processes).

The head of the New Zealand .Net user group, Lukas Svoboda, says .Net experts are thin on the ground.

"I could count on both hands the number of really good, high-level people there are in New Zealand."

The user group has 500 members.

Demand from employers for Java, SQL and Visual Basic programming skills remained strong throughout the last quarter, Spherion says, with a trend towards acquiring skills in specific packages such as SAP, Lotus Notes and Access.

From January to March, the most popular internet skills sought by employers continued to be XML, HTML, SQL and Java. Last week TMP/Hudson was advertising 14 .Net-related jobs, Monster.co.nz listed nine, JobUniverse seven and Spherion three, all in Australia.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
