  • While the condition of the labor market nationally has wavered, the IT industry has thrived. There are 145 million employed workers overall, including five million employed in IT. Temporary workers account for 10 percent of the current total workforce and 20 percent of the IT workforce. The unemployment rate is approximately 7 percent of all workers, whereas in IT this figure less than 3 percent of IT workers.

    In addition to the 5 million employed IT workers, there are as many as 20 million hybrid business/IT professionals who do not fit into a traditional IT category.

  • IT spending continues to rise as businesses realize its value. On an annual basis, the U.S. spends over $1 trillion on IT.

    It is projected that the U.S. total IT spending will steadily increase over the next several years, with expected spend to be $1.073 trillion in 2013, $1.112 trillion in 2014, $1.154 trillion in 2015 and $1.196 trillion in 2016.

    The temporary staffing market is a $93.8 billion industry. The temporary IT staffing market specifically is a $25 billion industry.

    The industries spending the most on IT are financial services, telecommunications, energy, retail and healthcare.

  • As new jobs are created and organizations increase their IT headcount, positions in IT continue to open.

    In 2013, the U.S. created 1.4 million jobs, of which about 236,000 were in IT. And IT leaders are expecting to increase their IT headcount in 2013. Forty-seven percent of IT leaders will be increasing their permanent and 46 percent of IT leaders will be increasing their temporary headcount.

    Sources: 1(Bureau of Labor Statistics, April 2014), 2(TEKsystems, December 2014)
     
  • Growing demand
    There were over 1 million unique IT job postings in 2013

    Between 2012 and 2022, the U.S. government predicts an 18 percent increase in IT employment

    Supply challenges
    The number of computer science and information science degrees awarded decreased 27 percent between 2005 and 2010

    For every 1 computer science degree awarded, 3 new computer science positions are created

    Sources: 1(CareerBuilder, 2014), 2(Bureau of Labor Statistics, 2014), 3(Institute of Educational Sciences, 2011) 4(Dice, 2013)
  • While demand continues to rise, there is a shortage of qualified talent—forcing organizations to compete.

    47 percent of IT hiring managers reported a lack of qualified talent lengthened their hiring process

    What’s the next big trend in IT and is your organization ready to handle it?

  • IT is a competitive environment. IT staff retention is shaping up to be one of the biggest challenges facing CIOs. The average IT professional receives 23 recruiter solicitations per week. Nine out of 10 IT professionals say they are open to new opportunities, even if they aren’t actively looking for a new job. Eighty-three percent of IT employees plan to actively look for a new job in 2014. Retention remains a concern. Thirty-seven percent of hiring managers expect voluntary departures to increase, according to Forbes.

  • IT is expensive and companies are willing to pay a premium for scarce skill sets.

    In the last few years, salaries in the IT field have increased much faster (5-15 percent) than salaries in other fields (2-5 percent). Computer science graduates in the class of 2013 received an average starting salary of about $60,000.

    Sources: 1(Salary.com, 2012), 2(Forbes), 3(Dice, 2013)
     
  • IT is opportunistic and salary alone is not enough. IT professionals are looking for a lot more from their employer.

    IT professionals are motivated by jobs that are aligned with their skills, goals and interests, consistent employment and compensation.

    Eighty-one percent of IT professionals would consider changing jobs for the opportunity to develop and enhance their skills.
    Seventy-six percent of IT professionals would make a move for the chance to advance their careers.
    Seventy-one percent of IT professionals would consider a new job based on salary.

    Eighty-four percent rely on a professional network
