The State Of The Tech Job Market by Modis
Tech hiring evolves as rapidly as technology itself. And since we happen to live in an era of lightning-fast technological advancement, IT hiring managers have to wrestle with an ever-shifting hiring landscape. How can tech recruiters and managers know what to expect at the negotiating table? Answering this question is crucial to success. Getting it wrong means not being able to recruit the kind of talent that can help a company achieve a major breakthrough.
To get a handle the current world of tech hiring, MODIS, an IT Staffing firm dedicated to connecting top talent to the best companies, interviewed 500 IT decision makers. They were asked questions on topics ranging from benefits, hiring salaries, rehiring, biggest diversity challenges, the hardest skills to find, and more. Some of the results are unexpected, even to people who think they have their finger on the pulse of the tech job market. Among many other things, it found that despite the fact that companies offer a buffet of perks in order to attract top talent, most candidates are primarily interested in a good salary. The perk that candidates really care about? Flex time.
To really get a feel for the sector, the survey also asked about future trends. For example, it was found that most hiring managers thought that the next tech city wasn’t in California. They don’t think it will be on the coasts at all. In fact, most said that Chicago will be the next tech hub. Those surveyed were also bearish on the potential of augmented reality, and believe that AI will be the center of the tech world in the years ahead.
