Career Direction: Getting an Early Start with Technology

If you're interested in IT, now is the time to apply for available jobs -- they account for nearly half of Glassdoor's "25 Best Jobs in America" report. Glassdoor career trends analyst Scott Dobroski says the reason for this is because "Companies worldwide must now maintain an online and mobile presence to stay competitive, requiring them to invest in employees with deep tech skills."

With the demand for techies at an all-time high and the pool of qualifying talent surprisingly low, employers are creating more competitive job offers to attract top candidates. And, companies aren't just looking for web developers. Tech roles in high demand vary from business analysts and systems engineers to desktop support and database administrators.

According to Robert Half's Salary Guide, jobs in these positions are expected to grow 5.3 percent in this year alone. Not to mention U.S. News ranks tech careers high in work-life balance with solid future job prospects.

To help you get a head start on your search, we've listed some of the best jobs in tech right now and their salaries according to Robert Half'sSalary Guide. Check out the list below.
