Microsoft invites you to participate in the annual IT Skills and Salary Survey led by Skillsoft. The Microsoft community have been strong supporters of the annual IT Skills and Salary Survey by Skillsoft for over eight years. If you’ve taken any Microsoft training or earned a Microsoft fundamentals, role-based, or specialty certification, we want you to represent Microsoft. 


Here are some key themes from the Skillsoft 2021 IT Skills and Salary Report, which will be available to download here. 

  • IT salaries continue to increase. 
  • IT values certifications. 
  • Certifications deliver value to organizations and employees. 
  • The skills gap remains a critical challenge. 
  • Investing in employee development can close skills gaps and help retain top talent. 
  • For the second year in a row, Cloud and Cybersecurity skills are the most in-demand, as IT decision-makers continue to struggle to hire in these areas.  
  • Once again, Microsoft holds the number one position in our top ten areas of focus for IT departments. 


All contributions collected in the survey are confidential and will offer insight into industry salaries, in-demand certifications, skill gaps, and the existing career landscape. Survey results help generate an annual report used by industry insiders, hiring managers, and IT professionals. Please help us contribute and take the 15-25 minute survey by 11:59 ET on Sunday, July 31, 2022. Don’t forget to invite your IT colleagues and communities to complete it as well!  


At the end of the survey, participants who request an advanced copy of the 2022 report before it’s published will be automatically entered to win a $100 gift card from Skillsoft.
