    Info Tech Employment is becoming one of my favorite publishers. I’m an IT employer (project manager), employee, and instructor. So I like to keep up with the industry. The section `Corporate Jobs in IT’ explains how IT has grown up in the past 40 years and hires from its own IT services sector. This is where enlightenment appears. I’ve already used the Info Tech Employment books on IT staffing firms and IT services firms and they’re great. Professionals will be glad to have these resources available to go to the right places to get hired. The section covering `Government Jobs in IT’ is completely new knowledge to me. I haven’t seen anybody write about these jobs. This book explains the technological developments that are backdrop to technology in government, the jobs that have been created, and the Union job titles and salaries that now exist for these jobs. The Salary & Pension Charts for U.S. Federal IT Jobs Titles, and about 20 representative U.S. States and 20 U.S. Cities are completely eye-opening. They show lucrative salaries, pensions and benefit packages and IT jobs in all 50 U.S. States and most major cities. How to get one of these jobs is explained in clear detail. Usually a college degree is not required for a government job, if there is experience. People often ask me–how do I get a job in IT. Now I know what to tell them. This book is exceptionally well written.

  2. At mid-career, this book showed me what jobs can use my experience and pay for it. That’s what I wanted to know. I recommend this book for anyone who wants to work in government in any U.S. state or city or in Federal in your area. I geared my applications to the top paying jobs shown here in the GS grading structure. I have the education and experience. Also I followed the knowledge-skills and abilities statement recommendations to a tee.
