CIO IT Hiring Outlook

Despite 84 percent of CIOs being at least somewhat confident of growth in the fourth quarter of 2010, only 9 percent expect to increase hiring

Network administration is the No. 1 functional area in demand, taking up 21 percent of the demand pie, said the report, which is based on a survey of 1,400 senior technology executives responsible for budget and management. Security and help desk support are the largest functional areas in demand for CIOs for the fourth quarter-each nabbing 13 percent of the demand base.

Desktop support also garnered 51 percent of the demand (as participants were allowed multiple answers).
