Three-quarters of IT professionals would recommend an IT career to their children, a survey has shown.

Despite the current financial climate, IT professionals are positive about the technology industry and their immediate future in it, with 69% of 1,000 respondents to an IT-sector survey saying their company's position in the market was very secure or somewhat secure.

In addition to affirming their own decision to work in technology, 75% would recommend a career in IT to a child.

The research was undertaken by online recruitment firm The IT Job Board and recruitment marketing agency Barkers.

The survey also found that 86% of IT professionals expected to change jobs voluntarily in the next three years.
