10 Dec IT hiring report paints grim picture for 2009
A new Dice Report out Tuesday suggests troubling times ahead for IT professionals. A survey of more than 1,000 IT hiring managers at corporations and recruiting firms reveals a toxic mix: fewer jobs in the next six months, the possibility of layoffs, a flattening of salaries and a rise in the number of qualified job applicants.
The Dice Report is issued monthly by Dice Holdings, Inc., a New York-based online career site that bills itself as the leading site of IT professionals. It has roughly 90,000 jobs listed.
