Information Technology: The Accidental Career for Ph.D.s - Joshua B. Gross, Chronicle of Higher Ed

The United States has two major employment dilemmas. On the supply side, American universities produce a well-documented surfeit of Ph.D.s, far in excess of the number of tenure-track job openings. On the demand side, the American information-technology industry is greatly in need of skilled workers. But there has yet to be a move to direct Ph.D.s into IT careers in large numbers. We need to change that, and to encourage Ph.D.s — especially those in the humanities and social sciences — to pursue technology-related careers. http://chronicle.com/article/Information-Technology-The/231955/
