  • IT staffingRecently, it seems like every job search website and magazine has published some kind of survey about the state of IT staffing solutions. While each survey tends to have its own focus, there are some clear trends in staffing solutions that can be garnered from the responses of job seekers, IT hiring managers, and top IT staffing firms. Those trends include:

    • An increased focus on core skills and the ability to apply those skills to tightly-managed projects.
    • Increased compensation for candidates with sought-after skills – and more competition for the best jobs.
    • More use of social media as a recruiting tool (97% already use LinkedIn, 51% say they plan to add Facebook, and 49% say they plan to use Twitter).

    IT staff are being asked to design and develop new applications, support and upgrade existing infrastructure, and keep up with new technologies.  No wonder we’re constantly being asked to find highly skilled IT professionals with expertise in project management, analytics, and development – especially developers who can step in on short notice to help IT departments meet enterprise mobile, social networking and data center/warehousing requirements.
