(PRWEB UK) 2 May 2012
As Mobile is catapulted into the spotlight, research from the specialist website CWJobs.co.uk finds that one in five IT pros (19%) are planning to re-skill entirely to become mobile computing specialists. With 81% of IT pros planning to skill up on mobile, 84% thinking that mobile is set to grow and increase the number of telecoms jobs, this could finally be the year of mobile.
A recent survey conducted by Antenna Software and Vanson Bourne in February 2012 has revealed that UK businesses will double their Mobile project spend over the next 18 months - this has opened up significant opportunities for those working in the IT sector and 81% now plan to skill up on elements of mobile to add to their existing skills set as well as opening increasing numbers of project management jobs.

Mobile computing presents huge opportunities for businesses, and in turn, fantastic career opportunities for skilled IT pros.”
