Modis Shares Insights on New Employment Landscape for Technology Industry

Jacksonville, FL (February 8, 2011) –Modis, a leading provider of information technology staffing, today issued the white paper “Hiring Freeze Over as Information Technology Industry Rebounds,” which examines the changing face of the IT landscape and its effect on hiring practices. With the U.S. Department of Labor forecasting that technology-related jobs will be the fastest growing segment through 2013, there is a tremendous opportunity for employers and candidates to keep up with (and stay ahead of) trends in the evolving IT industry.

Organizations today are increasingly aligning business objectives with IT, leading them to seek more well-rounded IT professionals who possess leadership qualities and can make strategic IT decisions based on business priorities. This new report aims to help companies and job seekers better understand the current IT job market and the skills that are most likely to be in demand in the coming years.

The white paper provides a deep dive of topics including:

  • Legislation and government investments in technology that are impacting IT hiring
  • Hot emerging technologies that corporations are prioritizing today
  • A breakdown of IT hiring trends by job title and description

“IT always has been, and will continue to be a fast-paced, rapidly evolving field, and as a result, the description of the ideal candidate is ever changing,” said Jack Cullen, president, Modis. “As companies return to building up their IT teams and candidates look to position themselves competitively in the still uncertain market, it is critical to have a thorough understanding of the factors that are transforming their industry daily.”

A full copy of the white paper can be found on the Modis web site here.
