The three-month moving average trend for the creation of IT Pros jobs continues to move up. The hiring of IT Pros is robust.  Demand is across all industries but is focused more on those enterprises that are re-opening.

IT Pro Hiring Trend

The CEO of Janco Associates, Inc., Mr. M. Victor Janulaitis said, “With re-opening more organizations are actively recruiting. In full employment states, there are many positions for IT pros that remain unfilled due to the lack of qualified candidates.  Also, results for Janco’s Mid-Year IT Salary Survey show that IT salaries have begun to move up as demand is exceeding supply. Median Compensation for IT Pros is now over $96.6K. The greatest increases have been for IT executive management in large enterprises.  That is not all, IT Pros are demanding increases in compensation, and attrition rates are moving up as IT Pros look for better opportunities.”
