Yeah, not me
I don't have any of these titles - even apart from my day job. These lists are really interesting to read each year. They're going to be all about data for the foreseeable future, me thinks.

Re: Tech Jobs and Pay: Encouraging News for Those In The Trenches
@dave -- interesting list - I see some new jobs, and some older ones (systems architect) are listed. I dont' see my old job, tech writer -- guess it didn't make it in this year (!)

Was pondering if the "data scientist" role will change in the coming 1-2 years, and morph into something else -- maybe get swallowed up by analytics. If we accept that technology brings changes to the job arena, predicting is kind of hard.

If I'm starting college now, what do I study? What do I train for? How much liberal arts? How much science? How much phys ed? And what graduate school? Difficult to know. So few people live in the rarefied air of Solutions Manager that aiming for the top isn't always within our abilities.

Re: doctors. Have you tried any of the telemedicine apps? I've got one on my phone that offers general medicine, pediatrics, and psychology. Appoints with all these drs. are a phone call away, aided by Skype, etc. at a reasonable fee.

Dave I agree I think that technology will play a greater role in medicine in the future and we will see greater consolidation in the medical field as a result. In my area many doctors are given up their practices in favor of being hospital employees to get regular hours, lower costs and access to more support. We even have web doctors available for minor ailments. It also has benefits to the patient in reducing errors and subjectivity.

Re: Tech Jobs and Pay: Encouraging News for Those In The Trenches
@technocrati- You had me at IT Manager. :)

It is is interesting, because I think it might take a couple decades but that the role of "physician" is likely to be more dirupted by technology than that of IT manager. There may be a day where AI and scripted programs take over the role of general practitioner and we see a world where specialists are the only well-paid doctors. 

I think back to most of my visits to the doctor in the last couple of years. Almost all have centered on my being sick and wanting to know if I just had a virus or I needed an antibiotic. For the most part, I'd trust a machine with that.

My last trip to the doctor, I thought I might have Strep. The nurse swabbed me. We waited for the test. It came back negative, and the doctor looked at my throat and confirmed I had a virus. Wham bam, the doctor saw me for far less than I waited for the test result. I would have been fine with my phone telling me the results at home instead of waiting. Cortona or Siri could have done that.

Thanks David for this list.   It is certainly encouraging to know that regardless of whether one is making the listed salary, at least one should.  

I don't see anything in IT overtaking that of being a physician, but at least Tech professionals are in the ball park.

For the record IT Manager or Information Systems Manager seem to be where my career is heading thus far .

Need I say it ?  


Show me the money.
