Successful IT Professions need to have good communication skills.

Telecom job market suffers
Mean Compensation for all IT Pros is up by 5.43% in June to June comparison
Despite IT job gains attributed to a growing economy, telecommunications hiring has been suffering this year. The industry dropped 700 jobs in June, making a total of 43,800 jobs lost in 2017. That comes as no surprise considering the whirlwind of telco mergers and acquisitions. Verizon's acquisition of Yahoo's Internet properties led to a massive cut, Windstream's purchase of EarthLink eliminated hundreds of employees, and Vonage recently laid off 90 people due to acquisition redundancy.
Janco 2017 Jobs Forecast noted that the telecommunications industry has lost 39,200 jobs in the last year, despite a growth of 88,000 IT jobs.
The company's survey found that fewer companies are offering new executive and senior management positions in IT, although IT staff is increasing on the whole.
Janco CEO Victor Janulaitis says the executives his company interviewed expressed a wave of confidence after the 2016 U.S. election, but that sentiment has faded.
"It seems the tide has turned and they now feel there will be less growth in IT budgets for the remainder of this year. Janulaitis said. Hiring prospects are marginal at best, except for IT staff at the worker level in the latter part of this year."more info
