It's probably no surprise to those of us at the chalkface, but the demand for IT-aware people, and the money paid for them, is going through the roof, and will continue to do so. And now officially the US Government agrees.

In a major study, The Emerging Digital Economy II, employment growth in IT is growing half as fast again as the general US economy, and at $50k, average pay for Internet designers are around 66% over the national average. If you really want to know where the money is, it's in eCommerce, paying on average over $100k (nice work if you can get it).

Of course, to get the work, you need the education and skills. Wages are predicted to be directly linked to educational attainment and skill level, so that training course is worth the money!
