Our friends at Global Knowledge and TechRepublic have released an open call for their fourth annual IT Skills & Salary Survey. Having taken it myself, I can assure you it’s painless (no more than 10 minutes) and pretty interesting to boot. What skills are in demand – both sector-wide, and in your specific company? What skills do you think you’ll need to pick up in the near future, and how do you plan to acquire them? How did your certifications (if any) impact your salary or otherwise add value? Is your company trending up, down, or the same?

If you participate in the 2011 survey you’ll be entered to win one of six American Express gift cards. All participants will receive the completed survey results by email. The survey deadline is November 19, 2010, and you can begin the survey here: http://cbs.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_eJ5RYAPyLzb547q&user=6

To compare this year’s results with last year’s predictions, check the Global Knowledge 2010 Salary Survey here: http://globalknowledgeblog.com/training-trends/it-skills-in-demand-for-2010/

You can also download a free copy of the Robert Half Technology Salary Guide 2011 for the United States and Canada. It tracks what certifications are in the highest demand and the low, high, and median salaries for dozens of specific IT positions: http://www.roberthalftechnology.com/salarycenter

Finally, Paul Sorenson over at Oracle had some great commentary on the IT high points in  the recent “Best Jobs in America 2010” survey released by CNN/Money Magazine.
