There's a dramatic shift happening in the IT market that is making managers re-think how they hire technology professionals. Learn what you can do to get the best talent from Resource 1's new eBook.

The IT Talent Shift

The shift that is occurring has created a situation where many IT hiring managers can’t secure talent the way they used to. Traditionally, when you offered someone a job, they most likely accepted it. That is no longer the case in this market.

Resource 1, an IT consulting firm based in Oak Brook, Illinois has released a new eBook to discuss the IT hiring challenges many are experiencing in today’s market. This eBook, “The IT Talent Shift: The 6 Things You Need to Know About Hiring IT Professionals Today” is authored by Anastasia Valentine, the Executive Vice President and Managing Director at Resource 1.

Anastasia has seen first-hand how the IT hiring market has shifted in the past year. “The shift that is occurring has created a situation where many IT hiring managers can’t secure talent the way they used to. Traditionally, when you offered someone a job, they most likely accepted it. That is no longer the case in this market.”

The eBook discusses how the current unemployment rate in IT (last reported by Dice.com to be 3.5%) has been able to remain so low throughout the past few years. It also discusses the growth in the demand of skilled IT professionals. Together, these two trends have made hiring extremely difficult. In the eBook, Anastasia suggests 6 actions that anyone looking to hire IT talent should consider today.

“The best advice I would offer to anyone looking for IT talent right now would be that if you find a candidate of interest, get that interview scheduled. If you know that this individual is the consultant that you want, make the offer quickly. IT professionals are not staying on the market long so if you find a great one, act quickly to make sure they start at your company.”
