With 2013 well underway, IT workers’ employee confidence remains high and reflects the strength of the sector, showing little change except for a slight dip in workers’ confidence in their ability to find new jobs, according to a new online survey conducted by Harris Interactive on behalf of Randstad Technologies.
Emerging Technologies Fuel Solid Job Market For IT Workers
“Technology workers remain one of the most confident when it comes to job availability, the future strength of the economy and their current employer,” said Bob Dickey, EVP of Technologies at Randstad U.S. “For instance, we are seeing great demand for emerging technologies within the third platform, which includes cloud computing, social technologies, big data analytics and mobility. Another high-growth area that we are seeing within the technology industry is software developers, especially candidates proficient in the main programming languages, such as Java and .Net.
However, even amid a shortage of IT workers to fill available jobs, employers are seeking a unique combination of soft and hard skills and experience in particularly high-demand industries, Dickey said.
Tough Job Competition Dulls Tech Workers’ Optimism on Employability
IT workers are feeling the pressure of a competitive market. Dropping 11 percentage points this quarter, 44 percent of IT workers reported feeling confident in their ability to find a new job compared to 55 percent the previous quarter. Still, a third of technology workers (33 percent) are likely to look for a new job in the next year versus 34 percent who were likely in the previous quarter.
IT Worker Confidence in the Economy, Job Security On The Rise
The majority (74 percent) of IT workers report it is not likely they will lose their job in the next 12 months, representing a five percentage point increase from last quarter. Also, technology professionals’ confidence in the overall economy rose slightly by one percentage point this quarter, with 34 percent believing the economy is getting stronger.
