mababa msyado ang pay na IT pro ng pinoy specially yung nsa gov, kaya tuloy pansin
mo na puro palpak ang sytem programming ng gov natin, and one the example nga is
yung mga website nila na bulok
lalo na ang mga nasa front liner ng gov’t agency….corruption ay d na mawawala…..even sa napakaliit na posisyon sa gov’t ay nangungurakot na.
Madami ding mga empleyado sa gov’t na HINDI deserving sa posisyon sa I.T., marunong lng pumindot ay I.T. na…masabing nasa EDP or MIS department ay I.T. na., mga walang alam ang pinapasahod ng ng taong bayan….nagaantay na lng na mga retirement nila.
It seems to me that right now, some of the most promising and required professions in the world are related to IT. That is why there is a great demand in the market for such services. There are many companies that provide services in many areas, but I would like to highlight Light IT. In addition they have a lot of useful information which you can read on their site https://light-it.net/blog/loan-automation-software/ and find something new for yourself. Good luck!

Langya ang laki ng tax na kinukuha nyo smen tpos ganito lng!!! Mhiya nman kayo!!!
I appreciate this site because a lot of utile stuff on here : D.
whole of the UK but of course most of our work is in London .
To be honest, I could not even imagine that there could be such large salaries in this field of activity. But I am sure that such money hides a very hard job that takes a lot of a person’s time, so such work is well paid
Of course, there have always been and will always be high salaries in the IT field, because these specialists are in great demand in our time. But finding a professional is not so easy, so there are companies that provide outstaffing services. Simply put, you do not need to look for a developer or DevOps engineer on your own, the company takes care of the search, interviews and recruiting.
Good day to all. in fact, there are professional freelancers who even earn more without sitting somewhere in the office .. here it seems to me that you just need to understand for what purposes you need a programmer and what level and specialization he should have. if you are interested in this topic, you can see more here: https://devoxsoftware.com/services/it-staffing/
You are absolutely correct that there are professional freelancers who earn a good income without sitting in an office. Freelancing has become a popular way for people to work in various fields, including programming and software development. As you mentioned, understanding the specific needs of your project and the level of expertise required is important when considering hiring a programmer. It’s important to find someone who has the appropriate skills and experience to successfully complete your project.
