Detroit area IT jobs to increase in early 2009
Information Technologies hiring in the Detroit area is anticipated to increase in the first quarter of 2009 according to the Robert Half Technology IT Hiring Index and Skills Report. And networking and infrastructure are leading the way, which makes sense based on the increased demand for virtualization and cloud computing. Not by large amounts, but at least in positive territory. Compare this to recent comments by our leading economists who claim our recently recognized recession will last at least through he first half of 2009, it implies that IT is still seen as a cost-saving investment that can increase operating efficiencies over the long haul. This is good news. I'll be sitting at my desk waiting for the phone to ring with all of those job orders now.
