IT workers reported confidence in the job market, job availability and the economy at the end of 2006, according to a report released Jan. 22 by staffing and recruitment firm, Spherion.

The survey's results suggest that a lot of technology professionals will be jumping ship this quarter. Nearly half of IT workers (46 percent) reported that they are likely to look for a job in the next 12 months, up six percentage points since the third quarter of 2006.
