Those looking for systems admin jobs (Click here
) and other hard-to-fill positions may have to settle for temporary placements in the coming months.
TEKsystems recently released its quarterly IT Executive Outlook survey, which found that more companies are looking to hire temporary tech workers
during Q3, but fewer employers are planning to boost full-time hiring.
"Continued economic uncertainty makes contract workers more appealing," Tania Lavin, market research manager for TEKsystems, said in a statement. "IT leaders would rather hire consultants on a project to project basis than ramp up full time teams without specific initiatives in mind."
Some key findings of the survey include:
- 40 percent of IT managers plan to hire temp workers during Q3, up from 36 percent last quarter.
- 38 percent of IT leaders plan to hire permanent tech workers, down from 41 percent last quarter.
- Enterprise architects are the hardest employees to find (65 percent), followed by cloud architects (58 percent), security specialists (51 percent), and BI specialists (49 percent).
- Financial services companies have the most trouble finding database administrators.
- IT companies struggle the most to find systems administrators, BI specialists, business process engineers, network architects, and .NET developers.
TEKsystems is a leading technology staffing and services company with more than 25 years of experience. The company deploys about 70,000 technical professionals each year from 90 locations throughout North America, Europe, and Asia.
