By Alicia Ouverson In the event that your contact information changes, it’s important to update both your Dice profile and your resume.

Dice Techonomics
While overall tech salaries rose a relatively healthy 5 percent during 2012, closer study of the numbers reveals some clear — and surprising — winners and losers.

Dice Techonomics

This is especially true for companies in secondary markets like Pittsburgh, St. Louis and Milwaukee. The pool of talent is shallower in regions like these, but that doesn’t mean there’s less work to be done in their IT departments. So, the rule of supply and demand’s kicking in: Salaries… continue…

T-Shirt
If you work in tech, it’s pretty much a given that you have T-shirts. Lots of T-shirts. T-shirts that run the gamut from sarcastic to far-from-G-rated.
