White House Hacking Gives us Hints for Future IT Job Market

IT recruiters and IT staffing companies have known for a while that security is a hot area for IT jobs.  As people become more and more reliant on technology in daily life and business, hackers and cyberattacks become more and more common.  Technical recruiters and IT staffing firms have even more proof now that security is a very high priority area in tech.  Recently, the White House announced that Russian hackers accessed White House emails, information, and potentially some sensitive information of American citizens. 

With a high profile target like the White House, it’s obvious that there are more resources and IT professionals urgently needed to defend America’s digital property and interests.  If you’re searching for IT jobs, it’s worth noting that more and more IT recruiting agencies and IT staffing agencies will be seeking candidates with skills in security. Building up or acquiring applicable skills for security jobs will be a very worthy investment.
