Computerworld — That IT professionals work on vacation is as obvious as sand on the beach. For many, it's accepted as part of the job -- and they just might relish the idea that they're indispensable.
In a recent survey of 200 IT pros by TEKsystems, 67% of the senior IT workers polled said that they are expected to be available while they're on vacation.
The IT staffing firm's finding might sound low to some people; many tech career experts say it's likely that as many as 95% of senior IT professionals would have to be on call when they're on holiday.
