IT Jobs – Always there, always there, always there

It’s what we expect from technologies like smart phones and websites in this hyper-speed, hyper-connected world. But what about you, the people who support those technologies?
Do you have to be Always-On as well? That’s the question we set out to answer in the first-ever “Most Always-On IT Jobs” report. To get that answer we surveyed nearly 800 IT professionals in Asia, Europe, Latin America and the U.S. to determine the degree to which they have to be always available, always working at peak capacity, always accurate.

The results show that the top 10 Always-On jobs, as determined by respondents, can be the mental and emotional equivalent of sprinting uphill in the driving wind while juggling, wearing only one shoe. And some IT professionals thrive on this challenge.

So, what determines the level of Always-On for any job category?
The survey captured respondents’ agreement to statements
reflecting five dimensions of Always-On. These dimensions are
weighted as shown in figure 1. (The statements from the survey are
shown at the end of the report.)
