The last findings from Wanted Analytics show an enormous surge of cloud computing-related hiring over the last three months of 2011. During this time, employers and staffing firms placed more than 10,000 job ads that included requirements for cloud computing skills and experience. More than 2,400 companies posted job ads during this 90-day period and hiring demand grew 61% year-over-year.
Computer Specialists and Programmers are most commonly required to have cloud computing experience. However, as cloud-based software increasingly impacts additional areas of business, other fields are more commonly required to understand and work with cloud-based applications. Other jobs that most often include these skills in job ads include Marketing Managers, Sales Managers, Customer Service Representatives, and Cargo and Freight Agents.
