IT Job Prospects Strong for 2011

83% of organizations plan to hire over the next six months; 86% of those seek to increase tech staffing.
Companies will aggressively seek to hire IT talent during the first half of 2011, says Technisource. Conducted by Monster.com, the new survey reveals that a large majority of organizations plan to hire during that period, and most of these will seek tech workers. A strong sense of optimism about improving business prospects is fueling the anticipated boost in recruiting. Tech jobs in particular demand include those that address project management, infrastructure and business analysis. Many are new positions, as opposed to vacant ones. “Economic conditions that led to hiring freezes, technology cuts and migration delays across the last 18 months are now starting to reverse,” says Michael Winwood, president of Technisource. “Companies are beginning to increase spending to remain competitive or regain a lost competitive advantage.” More than 430 HR managers or recruiters with specific responsibilities to hire for tech positions took part in the survey.
