Network Administration: Working From the Ground Up1 | 2 |
Because of the emphasis on security and wireless, Norrington believes the demand for network administrators will only grow.
“For this institution, nonprofit institutions and corporations, security and wireless have been major pieces of networking,” she said. “Anyone who might be starting in technology, the security and wireless areas [are] really good for them to go into right now.”
As employers look for specialized candidates, the role of network administrator may subtly change during the next five years.
“We think employers will be looking for [specialization] in wireless and voice,” Yoshida said. “And then there are places in the network where we may need administrators to specialize. It might not be the case today, but over the next five years, you’re going to see more and more demand for people who are specialized.”
