Industries & Professions /
According to the U.S. Department of Labor, the computer systems design and related services industry is expected to have 45 percent employment growth through 2018, and is projected to be one of the 10 fastest growing industries in the country. There is currently a demand for Internet consultants; however, as more and more companies become established on the Web, they may hire their own Webmasters and systems specialists. In addition, new software programs are making the development of simple Web pages easier to create without expert help. The consulting industry is also directly linked to the economy. Companies scale back during economic slowdowns, and freelance Internet consultants can have a decline in business.
