Indiana and Virginia to gain more IT jobs in the years ahead
After earning a degree in a subject related to computer and information technology (IT) from a Christian university or college, students may want to consider moving to Indiana or Virginia, as these states are expected to see more employment opportunities for IT professionals.
For example, the Indianapolis Business Journal recently reported that Bell Techlogix, an Indiana-based provider of IT services, will undergo a $1.4 million expansion and, as a result, add 204 new jobs by 2016.
“Central Indiana has become a national leader in the growth of information technology, and here comes another example,” said Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels, as quoted by the news source.
Meanwhile, iGate Corporation, an IT and outsourcing company, will establish a new facility in Virginia, which, according to The Associated Press, is expected to generate 250 jobs. As the $1 million facility will be located in Loudon County, iGate will be better able to serve its governmental clients in nearby Washington, D.C.
Whether or not students choose to relocate following the completion of their studies at Christian colleges and universities, having the right mix of knowledge and skills will make it so that when a job opportunity arises, they are ready to pursue it to the best of their ability.
