Recruiters Say Tech Hiring Will Increase in 2011


are not afraid to smile and shake their jazz hands about full time technology

job openings they need to fill next year. Is it rainbows with gold pots in

2011? Well, let’s not overstate the facts.

Hiring will occur in technology in 2011, but the

movement to rent and lease technology skills has never been so ingrained a

practice than in the past two years, and it will continue to grow. Trends in technology contracting and freelance are here to stay, though one report centered on full-time hiring

finds developers, project managers and business analysts will have demand.

Indeed, 86 percent of 435 recruiters responsible

for hiring technology jobs are planning to hire technology talent in 2011,

according to a December report. The majority — 56

percent — will be adding less than 10 employees with 37 percent hiring between

11 and 50 workers. Eight percent will be hiring 50 or more technology workers.

The good news is nearly one-third of the hiring is

for new positions, with more than 62 percent claiming they will be both replacement

and new positions.
