As the world teeters on the edge of a new recession, it is more important than ever to take a look around and see what your employment situation looks like. Although the U.S. employment rate remains stubbornly high (at or over 9 percent), the technology jobs market is actually faring much better than most other sectors. According to a recent report by Web-based IT hiring specialist Dice.com, there's a shortage of talent for a particular skill in every geographic section of the United States, and if novices are looking to break into the tech industry, there's also an accessible entry point—developing for Microsoft's .NET platform. In addition, the jobs report found the number of available tech jobs stood at 83,567, with 50,486 listed as full-time positions, 35,907 were contract positions, and 1,603 were listed as part-time positions. But where to find these jobs? Well, if you're the owner of a Google Android smartphone or tablet, then heading over to the Android Market might be a good place to start. The site has several apps dedicated to helping you find a new career in a new town, as well as helping you polish your resume and keep your career path on track.
