Computer support specialists are currently experiencing the highest rate of unemployment among tech professionals: six percent, according to the latest report from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Still, that’s below the 7.8 percent national unemployment rate the bureau reported in December. In the near term, recruiters and hiring managers say support personnel will remain lower-priority hires. However, there is a ray of hope if you’re prepared to upgrade your skills. “There’s a caveat: As more companies shift to the cloud for IT needs and more support staff work in the field using mobile devices, the skillset will evolve, amping up the need for quality hires to service end users,” Hill says.
