Computer Network Administrators
The U.S. Department of Labor projects that employment of network and computer systems administrators is projected to grow 12 percent from 2012 to 2022, about as fast as the average for all occupations. Network administrators are in demand as firms invest in newer, faster technology and mobile networks. Companies are also seeking administrators to assist in protecting computer systems from hacking and other computer attacks. Job opportunities should be best for those with a bachelor's degree, certification, and up-to-date training. Cloud computing, however, could increase efficiency of network administrators and therefore decrease demand.
