With Linux powering nearly every mobile device that hits the market, the demand for Linux-related jobs is rapidly growing despite national unemployment figures. Combine this with the ongoing success of companies such as Red Hat and it’s easy to see why demand for Linux professionals is on the rise.

Jobs have been the collective focus of much of the US population over the past two years and with the national unemployment rate stuck at 10 percent, it’s hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel. But the good news is that IT could be the industry that leads out of the dark abyss. And Linux is a particularly lucrative skill to possess.
