CONNECTING SALARIES TO TALENT
2013 SALARy GuIdE
FOR IT PROFESSIONALS
In today’s tumultuous, cost-conscious economy, businesses are striving to maximize their return on investment. However, while many view ROI as an exercise of “doing more with less,” in the IT world, optimizing ROI is all about doing things better and doing it with the best talent available.
It’s no surprise then that the competition for professionals with the latest skills — electronic medical records implementation, cloud computing, mobile app development, etc. — is intensifying. In fact, the unemployment rate for IT positions is well below 4 percent, resulting in an extremely shallow pool of available talent and creating challenges for businesses looking to connect with the right professionals for their critical positions. At Modis, we help businesses overcome this challenge every day by making it easier to connect with, and hold on to, exceptional professionals with the right mix of IT skills and proven experience — those professionals that bring not only technical aptitude, but also deliver significant business value. One of the ways we can make it easier is through our 2013 Salary Guide, which features the most thorough, accurate and current collection of compensation insight for the IT industry. The figures presented in this guide are based on detailed hiring metrics from our nationwide branch network and a comprehensive examination of national hiring data and trends. In addition, the Salary Guide features detailed job descriptions for hundreds of IT positions. Investing wisely in your workforce is the surest way to ensure an optimal return. I hope that you find this Salary Guide extremely helpful in maximizing your ROI and that it helps you connect with the top IT professionals you need to make it happen. Sincerely, Jack Cullen, President
