When nearly 200 IT leaders were surveyed about their 2017 technical recruiting plans, here is what was found. They expect technical recruiting to slow down slightly. They expect to keep recruiting needs down by automating and using technology as much as possible to get the job done, educate, help make decisions through technology, etc. They expect Tech spending compared to 2016 to cool off slightly. They plan to use software to work better and faster.
Even though technical recruiting may taper off a bit, they still expect continued hiring needs and there will still be hard to find technical skills that will be in demand. The top three skill areas that will still be in high demand according to this survey are 1) Security 2) Programming/Application Development and 3) Business Intelligence/Analytics. Technical Recruiting in these areas will continue to be strong. Contractors with SaaS or Cloud experience will also be in high demand. Companies more and more will outsource much of their IT Development work. Visualization technologies will also be in demand.
Below are some job titles to be on the lookout for in 2017:
- Web Interface Design Director
