While certain confidence factors are dipping slightly, tech professionals express overall confidence in both their current job stability and prospects for landing a new position, according to a recent survey from Randstad Technologies. A significant number—especially when it comes to Millennials—are expecting to look for a new employer in the immediate future. A relatively positive employment market for the IT industry along with exploding interest in all things mobile, cloud and social media are contributing to the sentiments. "When you consider that technology is seeping into nearly every sector and becoming more critical in every industry, there is a growing demand for technical talent to drive technology-based processes," says Bob Dickey, group president over technology and engineering at Randstad. "[This is creating] promising careers and job opportunities for IT employees … We believe the industry is on pace to match or exceed growth rates like this in a variety of positions spanning the gamut of computer systems analysts to web developers and computer programmers." Nearly 175 U.S. IT workers participated in the research. For more about the survey, click here.
