Survey: Tech Workers Fear Their Skills Won’t Keep Up With Industry Changes

on Monday, Mar. 11th

Older workers aren’t the only ones insecure that their skills will be obsolete in the rapidly changing info tech economy.

That from a survey by Dice.com that found that tech workers are most concerned about matching their skill sets to new jobs.

To qualify, “no concerns at all” was the next most cited category. Other worries included relocation and increased workload.

Dice reports it’s not surprised by the findings, since layoffs are still touching the tech community:

Despite the fact that Bureau of Labor Statistics data shows that the number of IT jobs continues to grow and the tech unemployment rate is well below that of the national average, the overall economy remain lackluster, and federal budget cuts due to  sequestration aren’t going to make things any better.
