In an interview with TechCareers, Katherine Spencer Lee, executive director of IT staffing solutions firm Robert Half Technology and Certification Magazine columnist, discussed some technology jobs and industry sectors that have great prospects in the near future.
Lee maintains that the retail industry will take on additional IT staff as they seek to improve cost effectiveness and get more competitive. Some of the most in-demand job roles in this area will include network admins, DBAs and apps developers.

It could be an especially lucrative environment for consultants who can demonstrate extensive experience and up-to-date skills.
