As companies strive to reach consumers on smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices, they need professionals who can develop for the small screen. Starting salaries for mobile applications developers are projected to increase 9.1 percent to a range of $85,000 to $122,500 in the coming year.

Lawyers and detectives may be the roles most commonly depicted on TV, but the jobs that get high ratings in real life are often lesser known. According to salary research from Robert Half, demand for positions such as mobile application developers, data warehouse analysts and user experience (UX) designers is expected to grow in the coming year as companies look to invest in their information technology (IT) infrastructure and digital presence.

"A common feature of high-demand jobs is a large degree of specialization," said John Reed, executive director of Robert Half Technology. "Professionals with the best prospects have finely tuned abilities that enable their companies to take advantage of new technology and the increasing amount of information available to them."

The following is an overview of seven high-potential jobs identified by Robert Half for 2012, as well as six more in-demand skills identified by Susan Hall.
