Despite uncertainties, 46% of IT employees are looking

Patrick Thibodeau | June 7, 2013
The percentage of IT employees interested in getting a new job is rising, even as they lose confidence in the economic outlook, new survey data shows.

They are seeing more demand for IT help, not less. The Randstad survey was conducted by Harris Interactive and interviewed 3,631 adults, of which 183 are employed in IT.

More IT organizations are hiring instead of firing, Robert Half Technology, a recruiting firm, said on Tuesday. It said that 12% of the CIOs they interviewed expect to expand their IT teams in the third quarter, compared to 14% from the previous quarter.

More than half of the CIOs plan to hire for open IT roles, 26% expect to put hiring plans on hold, and 6% are planning reductions, Robert Half reported.
