More CIOs will be hiring this summer than last, but according to a new survey many will have a tough time recruiting top talent.
For the most part, business growth is driving the modest uptick and is cited by 44% of the 1,400 CIOs surveyed by Robert Half Technology, the Menlo Park, Calif.-based IT staffing firm. Thirteen percent said they would add IT staff during the next three months, while 3% said they would make cuts.
Brian Gabrielson, national practice director at Robert Half, described the IT job market as “not quite dot-com-esque, but it’s close.”
