The political turmoil and lack of any material progress on the trade talks with China and the EU adds a level of risk on the direction of the economy. However, even with all those factors in play there still is positive IT job market growth. CIOs are still planning on expanding the size of their organizations.

Most of the hiring that is occurring is at staff levels. Based on our current data we believe the hiring that will be done this year will be completed by June or July. Demand for consultants and contract employees will still be above average, however, there is a tendency to move towards in-house staff. This data is compiled by reviewing public data, open/filled positions at our client organization, and interviews with selected CIOs, Recruiters and our clients’ internal HR staffs.
