Hiring may finally be on the up-tick for IT staff - Janco continues to monitor the IT employment picture and sees a mixed view of the IT job market. Janco has found that short term hiring for IT staff and consultants is up, however long term CIOs do not feel that hiring will improve significantly for until early in 2013. The CEO of Janco, said, “In interviews of 110 in late January and early February of US based CIOs we found that most have a number of short term needs that need to be filled for additional staffing of a ‘temporary’ nature. CIOs are striving to keep the overall FTE (full time equivalent) headcounts level and do not project an increase within the next several months.”
