IT Hiring Survey in US / The employment picture remains bright to start 2014

The employment picture for technology professionals remains bright to start 2014, according to nearly 900 tech-focused hiring managers and recruiters.

Just as they did in our mid-2013 hiring survey, nearly three out of four respondents (73%) reported planning to hire more technology pros in the six months ahead. The difference? Nearly one-quarter or 24 percent of respondents indicated their additional hiring will be substantial, as compared to 19 percent who felt that way six months ago.

Compensation continues to be the foremost driver moving tech job candidates to quit their current positions: 75 percent of the hiring pros surveyed cited pay as a reason for tech veterans leaving their current employer. Still, a clear majority of America’s hiring managers and recruiters (58%) reported positions were vacant, because the salary guidelines weren’t appropriate.

“The New Year should be ‘all systems go’ for tech professionals on the career front. There aren’t many times when you can write your own ticket, but this consistent optimism and upward pressure on compensation means it’s time to capitalize,” said Shravan Goli, President of Dice.
