By Sarah K. White

Businesses across all industries become more and more reliant on technology every day—and this means it’s a good time to be in the IT field. For 12 industries/job categories in particular, the average annual compensation is only going to increase for the foreseeable future.

Sarah K. White writes, “Mondo’s 2016–2017 IT Salary Guide points to steady increases in tech salaries across 12 verticals. The study points out that as technology influences every industry, the demand for STEM workers is only going to increase, with a projected 1.5 million open positions in STEM by the year 2020. If you are already in the technology field, or are hoping to break into it, it couldn’t be a better time.”
