They have a terrific group of specialized folks that deal with your type of question .
At least one of the Mods here also Mods there .
NOTE: I recently made a thread on how to break into the IT field, and this thread is a spin-off of that thread.
However, now I'm just kind of gathering thoughts from people in the field on jobs in IT that are highly in demand but very difficult to outsource. So for instance, computer programming is a very hot job on the market these days (especially if you can program in Java, Python, and C#), but I worry about getting into programming because a lot of the jobs are being outsourced to India and to China as well.
What are IT jobs that are very high in demand but they are very difficult to outsource and also not likely to be replaced by AI in the near future?

Yes, I made another thread on how to break into the IT field, and I got some pretty sound advice on that thread. However, now I'm just trying to get some sound advice FROM PEOPLE IN THE FIELD on really what to focus and good subsets of IT to break into.
Before some jerk tells me, "You know you can just google this man?" It's not quite that simple because there are so many things that employers and college counselors, and the internet articles won't (or don't) tell you. Like take for example, it used to be much easier to break into computer programming. However, now everyone and their mom is going to these "fast track" coding boot camps, and not only that but it's pretty easy to ship programming jobs overseas to India and China.
So you have all these people that pay gobs and gobs of money to get all of this computer programming knowledge, and spend hours upon hours of study, just to find out that they need to know way more than that to even enter a field that is also largely becoming oversaturated and outsourced. I don't want that to be me.
