What is the pay outlook for Information Technology?

Overall demand for information technology workers will continue to grow as companies increasingly rely on data and technology. Individual job outlook varies by profession; demand for more specialized jobs, like cybersecurity analysts, is expected to grow significantly, while other jobs are vulnerable to outsourcing. IT jobs, which are particularly well-suited for remote work, usually require higher education or certifications and offer higher than average salaries.
