Boston Market | October 2011
Hiring demand for Web developers remains strong according to a new report. The most commonly advertised job titles during the study period were the following:
- Java Developer
- Web Developer
- .Net Developer
- Sharepoint Developer
- Web Designer
- PHP Developer
- J2ee Developer
The report was issued by WANTED Analytics™. It also stated that the nationwide candidate pool consists of less than one potential candidate for each job listing.
Meaning: There are not enough Web Developers in the workforce to fill available job openings!

The Dice Report for October is also reporting steady demand for developers, especially those with Microsoft .NET experience.
