Here’s some great news for job seekers with IT skills: More employers want to hire you. I recently read an article from Dice.com citing promising statistics from research firm Computer Economics. The poll reveals that out of 200 mid-size to large employers in the U.S. and Canada, 52 percent plan to hire more IT staff. This is very good news because it marks the first time since 2007 that more than half of companies report they will be hiring new IT staff. The planned increase is most evident in the financial services and healthcare industries. The numbers get even better when looking at data from the last 6 months with over 70% of hiring managers reporting a plan to add more IT jobs to their workforce.
