There are a lot of Cloud technology and cloud computing jobs available in the market both in the US and Globally but there aren't works who are trained and ready. In fact Globally the talent hunt fares better than in the US and people trained in cloud technology and cloud computing are to be found more in number outside the US. New jobs are ready and have been created but IT personal have not upgraded their training. So although a whole host of jobs were available in the US the positions went unfulfilled. in fact the need for cloud-ready workers will grown by 26% annually and about 7 million new cloud jobs to be available by 2015 - globally.

Cloud Computing jobs ready but workers are not.Some examples of cloud related jobs are Help desk and end-user support, IT systems and operations, Application development and maintenance and Project and program managers.
