4. Linux pros. Indeed, while “Linux” and “hot” don’t often appear in the same breath, IT pros with Linux expertise will remain in demand in the coming year. In 2013, the “Linux Jobs Report” — produced by Dice.com and the Linux Foundation — found that three out of four Linux pros had received calls from headhunters in the previous six months. Meanwhile, 90% of hiring managers reported difficulties filling Linux positions.
Jim Zemlin, executive director of the Linux Foundation, expects even more favorable conditions for Linux job seekers in 2014.
