Chief Information Officers

Employment for computer and information systems managers (including CIOs) is expected to grow 11 percent through 2022, which is about as fast as the average for all careers, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. As consumers and industries become increasingly reliant on computers and information technology, the expertise of CIOs will be in continuous demand. As computer technology becomes more sophisticated and more complex, corporations will increasingly require information science (IS) professionals capable of choosing among the ever-growing array of information technology options. Additionally, as small organizations begin to prioritize information management, more jobs should be available for CIOs outside of large corporations. Because some of these jobs are likely to be at nonprofit and educational institutions, IS professionals may have wider options when choosing an employer. Although salaries can be expected to be lower at these sorts of organizations, they may provide interested employees with a less formal and more service-oriented atmosphere.
