As Computing and Information Professionals are employed in many different fields (technology, librarianship, education, manufacturing, healthcare—to name just a few), statistics about employment and earnings vary greatly. For example, the salary range for a software engineer in a multinational corporation is vastly different than the range for a web designer in a small advertising agency. Similarly, the earnings potential for a public librarian in a major metropolitan area differs greatly from that of a school librarian in a rural district.
