The Dice Report
(November 4, 2011) - Pace Handicapping
The recruiting environment for tech professionals is less urgent than what we experienced in the first half of the year. The backdrop is still good - the unemployment rate for tech professionals is 4.2 percent, resumes viewed on Dice is at an all-time high and the job count on Dice is up 12 percent year/year. But, the Dice job count has plateaued for five months - a subtle sign that some restraint has returned to the recruiting landscape.
Less urgent does not equal less crucial. Technology teams are playing an increasingly large role in supporting companies' goals. Likewise, there is still a strong belief that proper investment in technology will help the bottom line of any business. Looking ahead, we expect technology will be a priority when companies compile their 2012 initiatives.
As a peek into recruiting priorities, hiring managers' top requests in the Dice resume database in the third quarter were:
.NET or .NET Developer
Sharepoint or Sharepoint Developer
Software Engineer or Software Developer
Managing Director, Dice.com
