Transforming the IT Employee for Today’s Technology

In a recent Denver Business Journal article – IT Hiring on the Rise, But Workers in Short Supply – our own John Murphy discussed how ASG would normally look for 15 years of IT experience in our employee candidates, but today the technology landscape demands a broader set of IT skills. Today’s use of technology – especially in non-technical industries such as healthcare, financial services and energy – require a diverse skill-set that is harder and harder to find.

So what does this mean for the IT employee today? Simply put it means that those that will command the best salaries and opportunities don’t necessarily need tons and tons of experience in one area of IT. Rather, they need to be able to understand how IT functions throughout an organization; how overall system design is impacted by the latest breakthroughs in virtualization technology and what this might mean to data storage management and computer network security. The new IT worker needs to have a diverse skill-set.

At ASG, we’re more and more passing up the 15 years of experience to find that person that holistically understands the role of technology in organizations today. There are tons of job opportunities out there today for this type of person.
