Re-Thinking HR: What Every CIO Needs to Know About Tomorrow's Workforce
Down about job prospects? Have heart because there are plenty of six-figure IT jobs at channel-centric companies. Here’s a sampling of well-paying jobs currently available.
According to Channel Insiders layoff tracker, more than 200,000 jobs have been eliminated by IT companies since October. And the bad news keeps rolling in. IBM laid off 5,000 from its global services unit and shifted jobs to India. Sun Microsystems completed its previously announced job cuts by eliminating more than 1,500 jobs. And even Google is feeling the strain of the recession, and cut 200 sales and marketing positions.
Do not despair about the bleak jobs market. There are plenty of well-paying jobs if you know where to look for them. If you have the right skills, you could land a six-figure job at some of the more channel-centric vendors.
The following is a sampling of the posted jobs at channel-centric vendors.
