Will News Be the Next Hot Field for IT Jobs?

Will IT recruiters and IT staffing agencies see a boom of IT jobs in the news industry soon?  While the news industry has been struggling to keep up with the pace of the internet and technology for a long time, it seems like Google is upping the ante.  Recently, Google pledged $160 million to 8 newspapers in the EU for a “Digital News Initiative.”  While this may not immediately bring a lot of IT jobs to technical recruiters and IT staffing firms in the US, or even in Europe, it says something about what the future may hold for IT professionals.

While it’s not a guarantee, it’s not uncommon for IT recruiting companies and IT staffing companies to see inklings of a hot new sub-field for IT in the news.  It’s also not a bad idea for IT professionals who are looking for jobs to consider building up skills that will be relevant to this sub-field!  It may win them a lot of attention from IT recruiting firms and their dream job.
