Are you looking for an IT job?

If you are, the market may be ready for you. According to the Department of Labor's Bureau of Labor Statistics we have seen a jump of more than 11% in IT employment from April to May this year. The numbers are in line with research conducted by Robert Half Technology, noting that IT job growth will remain robust.

To summarize the Robert Half report; 13% of U.S. CIOs plan to add staff over the next three months. (This is up 10% from the previous reporting periods), while only 3% of CIOs anticipate cutbacks.

This is good news for anyone in the IT market. Do you think this is an indication the big wave of outsourcing is fading? I do not think so. Companies are still outsourcing in record numbers; it is more an indication of the willingness of Sr. Executives to invest in IT to generate a competitive advantage.
