IT Hiring Picture Improves
One in five chief information officers, based on Janco ‘s interviews with U.S.-based chief information officers, anticipate hiring lower-level staff for short-term needs, with almost 25% of them doing so in the next three months as temporary positions, Janco says. Overall, firms are trying to keep their I.T. head counts level when considering both contractors and employees.
In the short term CIOs and IT Managers are reducing the use of contractors and are looking to replace them with lower cost employees. Almost all of the top level IT pros feel that things are looking better for 6 to 12 months down the road.
