Quote of the Day
"Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we rather have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit. "

- Aristotle

2009 IT Skills and Salary Report

(March 4, 2009) Global Knowledge, specializing in IT and Business training, and TechRepublic, online community for IT professionals, releases 2009 IT Skills and Salary Report. Among the key findings:
    Despite the current economic pressures, salaries increased over last year's.

    Average base salary increased from $73,900 in 2008 to $81,600 in 2009.

    Nearly half (46%) received a bonus in the past 12 months.

    Of those, 22% received between $5K and $10K.
The average age and experience of the salary survey participants remained fairly consistent overall. However, the number of respondents having at least a 4-year degree grew by 8 points over last year.

Nearly 75% of IT professionals,
  • who attended training, earned an average base salary of $82.8K,
  • who did not attend training earned an average of $78.4K,
  • 3 out of 4 IT professionals had an increase in productivity following the certification,

  • 87% who have attended training report they are more productive in their job role,
  • 64% stated that the training that they received had a measurable impact on their salary.
