A Web content mining approach identified 20 job categories and the associated skills needs prevalent in the computing professions. Using a Web content data mining application, we extracted almost a quarter million unique IT job descriptions from various job search engines and distilled each to its required skill sets. We statistically examined these, revealing 20 clusters of similar skill sets that map to specific job definitions. The results allow software engineering professionals to tune their skills portfolio to match those in demand from real computing jobs across the US to attain more lucrative salaries and more mobility in a chaotic environment.
