IT Jobs In High Demand

For Nebraskans just out of high school and still haven’t decided what career field to enter, Managing Director Brody Deren of Modis Omaha, a computer system design and consultant firm says information technology jobs are in high demand.

Deren says there are three specific areas in demand.

Deren says an interesting aspect about the I.T. field is that employers look at a potential employee’s abilities rather than education background so in some cases even a high school diploma isn’t needed.
