From the Paper:

"In the future workplace, fewer workers will have full-time, permanent jobs. Part-time and contract work are increasing everywhere as firms demand flexibility and seek to dodge hefty non-wage costs and employment- protection laws. And employees who are not taking their offices home with them or taking over their companies completely often are creating their own employment. (Linda E.; 03-01-1995)
"The computer industry has seen a boom in the careers of the professionals, as the technological and non-technological companies are each competing for the services of the software workers. Skilled computer professionals are needed by the firms to maintain a competitive edge and cost-efficient operations.
"Computer Systems administrators provide technical assistance, support, and advice to customers and users. They are troubleshooters responsible for interpreting problems and providing technical support. They answer phone calls, use automated diagnostic programs, and resolve recurrent problems. Support specialists may work within an organization or directly for a computer or software vendor. Many work as contractors, providing customer assistance for help-desk or support services firms."
