Over the last several months the U.S. economy has shown signs of improvement. John Challenger, CEO of outplacement consulting firm Challenger, Gray & Christmas, told the E-Commerce Times that there has been a 50 percent drop in high tech job cuts from last year. However, the IT job terrain has changed irreversibly from its high point of a few years ago. Certain career paths are increasingly being outsourced or eliminated altogether, and out-of-work employees will need to adapt if they want to return to being productive members of the high tech workforce.

Yes there is no doubt about IT Jobs Bouncing Back! But how long will this Wave Last??
Jump to:
If my employer requires me to return to the company's office full-time to perform my job, I will...
Agree, because I like my job regardless of where I perform my duties.
Comply, because I can't afford to lose my current job.
Go with the flow, but start looking for different employment.
Resign immediately, so I can dedicate all of my time to find a job that better suits my needs.
Try to negotiate a hybrid work from home / work in office arrangement with my employer.
