Bangalore: You have already read 7 Tech Skills In High Demand For 2013. While these skills may land you the high paying and reputed Jobs in the world right now, there are other tech skills that will no longer help you get a job the way they used to in past, hence a time to move on. In a recent survey of 1,100 tech-hiring professionals by Dice, a job firm for tech professionals combined with other research, including an off-the-record conversation with an engineering VP who participates in hiring decisions, here are the list of 9 outdated tech skills and withering technologies that you may avoid putting them in your resume. The compilation is done by ReadWrite.com.



#9 Windows XP Admin/Help Desk



At the time, Windows XP was ruling the corporate world, having skills in Windows XP Admin was covetous.  And as of now many IT professionals, from engineers to help desk support workers to system administrators, have significant XP experience. But the experience accounts little as Windows XP, which still holds the #2 spot for desktop operating market share just behind Windows 7, is heading to a closure. Microsoft ended XP license sales more than two years ago and plans to cease supporting it in less than a year.

1: I was skceptical about this list, until I came to point #6 "Customer Support" and the futile attempt to link this to cloud apps and platforms. True SaaS apps are just available plain vanilla without customsing, but that is not sufficient reason for support to just go away. Salesforce has been around with its SaaS model for close to a decade and it is popular in the CRM space. You think their customers now no longer ask for support?
