report from CompTIA suggests the most sought-after jobs in IT are currently software positions, IT support specialists and systems engineers, in that order. Close behind and still showing strong growth are cybersecurity positions and roles based on emerging technology.

We reached out to recruiters, executives, and tech pros, asking them to weigh in on the best opportunities they see in the year ahead.

The talent pools related to these two positions are still very small relative to the increasing demand,” he says.
