April 2017 – Celebrating Information Technology Month in Illinois


By Kathy McAuliffe

April 4, 2017

On January 26, 2017, Bruce Rauner, Governor of the State of Illinois proclaimed April 2017 as Information Technology Month in Illinois.  This information and a copy of the declaration were provided to the DuPage County Workforce Development Division by CompTIA, the world’s largest IT industry association, based in Downers Grove. CompTIA worked with Governor Rauner on preparation of this directive for several months.

The designation of April as IT Month in Illinois celebrates the important IT work being done in the state, and is also meant to encourage communities and schools to explore IT as a contributor to the economy and workforce, helping students to understand the growing opportunities in both technology and the workforce.

Rauner’s proclamation states that the IT industry contributes an estimated 5.3 percent annually to the Illinois economy, according to the Computing Technology Industry Association (CompTIA), and employs more than 234,000 individuals across Illinois at an average yearly salary of $95,062. It also states that the technology industry is projected to see an increase of more than 30,000 jobs by the year 2025, including new types of jobs that don’t yet exist, due to continuing technology development.

Monday Motivation: Plan Your Work and Work Your Job Search Plan


It’s Monday!  Yes!

Monday.  Time to get back to the job search after a great weekend.  You feel refreshed, restored and ready to go. A whole new week!  Five whole days to get stuff done and find your new job!

Sound familiar?  I thought not.

Many of us, frankly, hate Mondays — or at least, Monday mornings.  Let’s face it: it’s not easy leaving behind the weekend and all it means: sleeping in, being with family or friends and feeling accepted; spending Saturday outside in the sunshine, enjoying weekend meals together, going to a great movie, reading a great book, having some down time — you know, all that stuff that we can enjoy on Saturday and Sunday that we don’t have time for during the week…
