Most promising quote: “As more companies offer, or greatly expand, their online retail presence, more Web developers will be needed to build the websites consumers will visit to purchase their favorite products. Increased reliance on mobile search is another reason the industry’s employment growth should remain strong in the near future, since this should lead to new opportunities to create sites for mobile devices.” — U.S. News & World Report
