The rollercoaster ride we call the economy by Adam Dovens
The United States is in a very dark economic times these days, there is no doubt about that. Unemployment is at an all time high for the past decade at 9.5% and their are not many jobs out their to get. I going into my senior year and am wondering, do I really want to leave college? The fact of the matter is that their almost no jobs out their to be had. I have several friend who have recently graduated and cant not find a job for the life of them. The economists say that we wont see much improvement in the economy until 2011. Their is at least one upside to this post, their is hope. Once we get out of the recession/depression analyst's say that IT will be the number one growing field in the world. What I am doing in my job right now, will be the future for computers for sometime to come. All computer activities are moving from your desktop to a new concept called cloud computing. Cloud computing offers people to access their computer anytime, any place, and on any computer. The move to cloud computing has started already and we haven't even noticed. Anytime you create a Hotmail, gmail, or yahoo account, that is a web based application. Soon everything will be online and you will store absolutely nothing on your computer. I digress, once the economy gets back on track, the IT field will be flooded with new opportunities.
