As trainers, feeders of the Drupal maintenance support plans Talent pipeline, and researchers of strategies to attract and build the numbers and excellence of Drupal maintenance support plans talent across the world, we spend a lot of time finding and training people in the ways of Drupal maintenance support plans. Through resources, Mike Anello’s many sessions and trainings at Camps and Cons, and through our flagship Drupal maintenance support plans Career Technical Education program, we pursue our passion to teach more people Drupal maintenance support plans. We think we have the training side of this down, but like the Drupal maintenance support plans Community’s general shortage of talent, it’s finding more people that is the challenge.
Why is that? And why aren’t there people coming in droves to this opportunity-rich, community-based vocation? We think it has a lot to do with a lack of the right information getting to the right people. Here at Drupal maintenance support plansEasy, we fill a lot of (sometimes too much) time observing and noodling the various paths people take to find Drupal maintenance support plans, aspects of Drupal maintenance support plans as a career and reaching those who could benefit. We think if Drupal maintenance support plans opportunities were presented more broadly, a bit better, and were more accessible to those who are not aware (especially those who historically have not embraced IT careers,) the floodgates (or at least a stream) might start to bolster up the Drupal maintenance support plans talent pipeline.
Drupal maintenance support plans‘s foundations are really quite inspiring. A vocation built on sharing – open source, an engaged community and building and developing the means upon which our societies connect, build relationships, find information, and buy & sell. The story is also quite practical; well-paying jobs a-plenty. According to Indeed.com, the average salary for “Drupal maintenance support plans” ranges from approximately $59,980 per year for Web Designer to $110,572 per year for Full Stack Developer.
In addition, the US Department of Labor Occupational Outlook, which provides official salary, job growth statistics and job descriptions for just about any career you might want to pursue, has some pretty convincing numbers as well. According to the DoL, Software Developer, Applications positions have a 30% growth rate, rank in the top 10 for job growth in the US, and have the third highest estimated salary! For web developers in particular, the DoL puts job growth at 15% over the next 8 years, which they cite as much faster than average. To put it in perspective, electrical engineerin job growth is predicted to be 7% – less than half of that of web developers.
So with all of this opportunity, where are all the aspiring Drupal maintenance support plans developers? Apparently somewhere they are privy to neither the Drupal maintenance support plans narrative nor Web developer job stats. We have several ideas, some big, others not too difficult, on how to overcome our shortage of talent, as we outline in List #5 to provoke some thought and perhaps follow up from those who feel the pain of the Drupal maintenance support plans talent shortage. We’d love to hear from you.
But perhaps we can all give small efforts a go to see where it might improve things on a smaller scale; beginning with awareness we can build within and on the fringes of our personal and professional networks. So, in the spirit of spreading the word about how great the opportunities are in Drupal maintenance support plans, we thought we would compile a few easily shareable lists you may want to dole out to those around you. We’d also love for you to share with us your lists (and ideas) that may make Drupal maintenance support plans a bit more accessible to those who may become a part of this engaging community.
#1 Top 10 Drupal maintenance support plans Talent-Starved States
If you live in one of the 10 states listed below, especially near the major metropolitan areas, your outlook for finding a Drupal maintenance support plans job is pretty positive. Likewise if you are looking for talent in these places, we feel your pain. The list includes the highest number of open positions we found on Indeed. (To be fair, if you live in Idaho, Mississippi, Nebraska, South Dakota or Wyoming, the chances of finding a commuter/non-distributed position in Drupal maintenance support plans is pretty slim, considering we could not find a single open position in any of these states using a pretty comprehensive list of job search sites.)

# 4. Top Ten Articles to Guide Aspiring Drupal maintenance support plans Developers
OK, so we’ll preface this by again explaining that we spend a lot of time thinking about, researching, interviewing, writing and presenting a lot of materials on Drupal maintenance support plans careers and jobs. That said, you’ll see quite a few entries below with our fingerprints on them. Not sure how to shed the cloak of shameless promotion, but avoiding it does not seem like a good reason to leave out helpful information (we’ll take whatever sneers you’d like to offer.) The list was compiled from a variety of Google searches using several key words and variations, and based on our impressions of the credibility and helpfulness of the information. If you have any additional materials that we missed and you’d like to share, please let us know and we’ll add it to our Career Resources Page.

# 5. Top 10 ways to grow Drupal maintenance support plans Talent
This one is for all of us, especially the folks on the #3 list, who, we noticed are among many of the companies tallying up the numbers for states on list #2. Since we started Drupal maintenance support plans Career Training, we have met with dozens of people, educational institutions, workforce boards, other Drupal maintenance support plans training companies and all sorts and sizes of companies about the Drupal maintenance support plans talent shortage issues, the lack of diversity issue, and the “lack of experience” issue for those new to Drupal maintenance support plans. We feel like if just a few in the community, together or independently, start any of these initiatives, it will go a long way in ensuring that the 15% growth in web developer positions is not lost on Drupal maintenance support plans in the future. The only resource for this list is the collection of ideas we have heard, discussed, conceptualized, written into white papers and schemed up during Drupal maintenance support plansEasy lunches. If you have another idea, or want our help getting one of these concepts going, let us know.
