Hot Skills for 2013 Wednesday, 24 October 2012 09:12
In 2013 the IT sector will be an even better one for tech professionals. Increased demand for experience and skills will mean greater remuneration and bonus packages for those candidates who can match that demand.

Techie Invictus Wednesday, 24 October 2012 08:47
William Ernest Henley’s poem Invictus isn’t, as the recent Clint Eastwood movie of the same name portrayed it, a lyrical formula for achieving a moment of supreme glory but a poem about ceaseless struggle and relentless contest (in Henley’s case the struggle was against tuberculosis of the bone which awarded him a life of excruciating pain).
If it does have resonance today it’s with the contemporary job market, particularly the IT sector with its celebration of constant disruption and its demand for the techie’s continual re-invention. The end of social and job guarantees really does mean that the individual is master of his fate.
