"In the midst of a struggling economy, our fast-changing, knowledge-based
economy has created unprecedented challenges for employers and workers
alike. Employers increasingly need workers with a broad range of information
technology (IT) skills. These skills will become even more important as we
continue to retool major sectors of our economy, such as healthcare, transportation
and energy. By 2014, more than three-quarters of all jobs in the
United States will require some level of computing or technology skills, and
the vast majority of newly created jobs will require post-secondary education or training."
