A new study by Robert Half breaks down which IT jobs are expected to rake in the most dough in 2014. Application development (titles including, applications architect, manager or developer) ranks near the top of the list with salaries ranging from $94,000 to $148,000. What’s interesting, yet not at all surprising, is that SharePoint is the most profitable skill, adding an additional 12 percent to the salaries above.
With the release of SharePoint 2013, Microsoft’s focus on usability and simplicity has given firms a meaningful reason to reconsider adoption. As SharePoint continues to gain momentum in the legal industry, SharePoint roles remain high in demand.
While the shift in focus from Full Trust Solutions to the App Model has made server-side SharePoint skills less prominent, the need for SharePoint expertise is still required and remains in demand.
Other high-paying job titles include any IT C-level (CIO, VP of IT, etc.), consulting and systems integration and database administration. You can view all the titles and their salaries by reading the article on InformationWeek.
