Dice, the company that tracks the IT job market, has some good news for professionals: the second half of 2013 is going to be an awfully favorable period for technology professionals. Things are so good, in fact, that companies are willing to invest an inordinate amount of the cash in their constrained budgets on new technology professionals. In a recent survey of 1,000 hiring managers and recruiters working in the technology field, Dice discovered that while hiring was in a bit of a slump during the last six months of 2012, the first half of 2013 saw a healthy uptick. And in the second half of 2013, things are looking even better. "The biggest jumps in hiring intentions were from those with company headquarters in the Midwest, West and East, including the Northeast," says Tom Silver, senior vice president at Dice.com. "Each market has its own unique story, but in the end, it's just a good job market for technology professionals."

Others Are Hiring More Quickly  Although it's not a huge number, 22% of hiring managers say they're more rapidly adding new employees. Another 32% say the hiring timeline hasn't changed.
