Rise above average IT salaries with virtualization skills

Virtualization skills command a premium over average IT salaries. Expert systems administrators Rick Vanover and Eric Siebert tell you how to take advantage of this trend.

Average IT salaries are 15% to 19% lower than salaries for IT professionals who have virtualization skills, according to Foote Partners research. And virtualization job-seekers haven't seen demand for their services plummet during the recession like those in other areas of IT have, online job board Dice.com reports.

In this edition of This Week in Virtualization, expert systems administrators Rick Vanover and Eric Siebert discuss ways to develop your virtualization skills. Use hands-on training and online resources to stay current on the latest releases and platforms, and you can earn significantly more than the average IT salary.

This week's podcast also features news about virtualizing Microsoft Exchange Server.
