A Dice survey conducted in May shows the job market for tech professionals has been “a stand-out.”
Despite the near term economic concerns, 73 percent of IT-focused recruiters and hiring managers expect companies to add more tech staff in the second half of 2012. That’s up from 65 percent six months ago when asked about their hiring expectations in the first half of 2012.
That desire to hire doesn’t appear to be because of unwanted employee turnover in the tech department. A minority (37%) of corporate hiring managers said voluntary departures have increased thus far in 2012. Asked about salary trends for existing IT staff, 58 percent of corporate hiring managers noted they were higher than last year.
