Minneapolis And St. Paul Job And Pay Growth, More Good News For IT

I had a client ask me to dig up some statistics on job growth and average salaries for information technology professionals. The Minnesota Department Employment and Economic Development has this web site High Growth/High Pay Occupations with up to date (2006) median annual salaries ranked by job growth.

   

Occupation, Estimated 2002 Employment, 2002-2012 Net Growth, 2006 Median Annual Salary:

   

Total, All Occupations 1,721,521 +14.9% $37,192.70

1) Postsecondary Teachers, All Other 15,106 +50.6% $50,848.60

2) Network Systems and Data Communications Analysts   3,409 +50.3% $72,013.07

3) Computer Software Engineers, Systems Software   4,363 +47.4% $81,079.74

4) Computer Software Engineers, Applications   9,685 +41.4% $78,328.28
