Arbeitsmarkt Informationswirtschaft (The labour market of the information sector)
Abstract"The information sector is understood as the entire branch of information system services and the corresponding company-internal function in business enterprises and authorities. There are no figures available on the volume of the information sector labour market. Experts' estimations were gathered both from western German managers in industrial enterprises (N = 2,016) and from German information system specialists (N = 352) as to the present and expected medium-term employment prospects of this 'occupation of the future'. According to the estimations of the industrial managers, on the whole graduates in information systems technology do not currently have good job prospects in German industry. In the medium-term, however, the employment prospects increase rapidly in the secondary sector. The present labour market situation is judged more positively by information system specialists employed in industry than it is by the managers interviewed. In the medium term the judgments are similar. Businesses in the service sector already have a high need for graduates in information systems technology. In the medium term the situation on the labour market for information systems graduates will improve by far according to the estimations of the information system specialists. An overproportionally high demand for graduates in information systems technology is signalised in the tertiary sector. Very small service enterprises (1-19 employees) have an extremely high demand for information systems graduates." (Author's abstract, IAB-Doku) ((en))
