Last year we had excellent news that people with Linux skills were greatly sought after in enterprise, with generous starting salaries. There’s apparently a shortage of job seekers skilled in Linux, making them an even hotter commodity to some tech recruiters. This years job report shows that Linux jobs are still on the rise.
”While demand continues to grow for Linux talent, there remains a shortage of experienced Linux professionals on the market. This year’s Linux Jobs Report clearly illustrates this issue,” said Jim Zemlin, executive director at The Linux Foundation. “This year’s report also shows there is unlimited career advancement for developers and systems administrators who contribute to and seek out learning opportunities for Linux. The future is a bright one for professionals who know Linux.”
You can read the full report from The Linux Foundation’s website, however there are some key points: hiring managers are always on the lookout for Linux professionals, and it’s an easy way to advance your career.
The message really is then, learn Linux and get an excellent job.
