In addition Janulaitis said, "The recovery is well under way for IT Pros and should continue for some time. Hiring is up across the board, as many CIOs have been given the green light to start hiring and many have open requisitions they cannot fill because of a lack of qualified candidates. " Janulaitis expanded his remarks with, "Based on interviews of 93 CIOs in the last several weeks, we find that hiring is on a definite upswing and CIOs are now starting to look for lower and mid-level project leads and managers. This is definitely a signal that job prospects will continue to be positive for IT Pros. " Janulaitis cautioned, "…the rate of growth has slowed slightly and should be monitored as the labor participation rate fell for a second month in a row to 62.7%. "
