Best sectors in economy for IT

Ask an IT Leader Mark O'Gara, vice president of infrastructure management at Highmark Inc. discusses the best sectors in this economy.

Q. Which sectors are most likely to be a safe harbor as we ride out the financial crisis?

A. Health care, government and energy are well positioned. We are all affected by the economy, and the only variables we can really control are our performance and our outlook when we show up to work every day. We are all charged with managing our careers, and that requires connecting with people. Read the book Never Eat Alone, by Keith Ferrazzi, and build a network that you can leverage throughout your career.
