Using data from Rhode Island, this research examines the relationships among certifications, skills, educational levels and the level of compensation across the IT field and attempts to discriminate between ten major job functions. It assesses the significance of skills and certifications to specific IT worker categories. The level of education was found to predict success. Certification and skills vary across job functions, and did not necessarily differentiate across IT job functions. Suggestions on the development of curricula are proposed.
