If you’re a developer with experience in Java or ASP, you should have no trouble finding a job, particularly if you’re familiar with Agile software development methodologies. CWJobs.co.uk reports that listings for Java jobs increased 10 percent in the last quarter, making it the fastest growing IT skill. Agile and ASP postings climbed 9 percent, and jobs asking for familiarity with Microsoft’s .NET climbed 7 percent.
On the other side of the board, postings for SQL jobs fell 5 percent. However, the online jobs board still lists 19,875 SQL jobs, making it the skill with the most mentions overall. Similarly, the number of C postings also declined, but it still had enough mentions to make it the third most sought-after skill.
