Computerworld Australia's hot jobs round-up: 17 May 2010

A look at the hot IT jobs and certifications around Australia this week

Last week's Budget saw little in the way of support for IT skills and education, from both the Federal Government and the Opposition Leader, Tony Abbott's budget reply. State governments are still finding it hard to get enough skilled workers, though the job ad deficit seems to be continuing both in the public and private sectors.

Thankfully, the Department of Immigration has released their new Skilled Occupations List, and there are a few to note of for potential migrants skilled in IT:

  • ICT business analyst
  • Systems analyst
  • Analyst programmer
  • Developer programmer
  • Software engineer
  • Telecommunications engineer
  • Telecommunications network engineer
  • Telecommunications field engineer
  • Telecommunications network planner
  • Telecommunications technical officer or technologist

Chances are, if you're already in the IT sector, you will stay there, but for those looking to change positions, here are the hot picks this week:
