Only 8% of IT pros say social media are a good option for finding work.
IT workers are fairly optimistic about their jobs, says a survey from Modis. One surprising finding: Only a small fraction of those responding regard social media as a good way to find work. In any case, IT workers tend to be happy at work and intend to stay there, and many even expect a raise next year. But money isn’t everything – as long as bosses don’t micromanage and training opportunities abound, satisfaction rises. "Employers can retain top talent through more than just a competitive salary,” says said Jack Cullen, president of Modis, an IT staffing solutions provider. “Workers value autonomy and room to manage their own projects, and opportunities to grow as professionals and have a voice in the status of the project.” Braun Research Inc. conducted the research, in which more than 500 IT pros took part.
