Big IT Hiring Plans
Eighty-five percent of CIOs surveyed said they plan to hire in the first half of 2016, with 22% planning to add more staff, said John Reed, senior executive director of Robert Half Technology, in an interview with InformationWeek. In the first half of 2015, 87% of those surveyed said they planned to expand or fill vacant positions with 19% adding more roles to their teams. There has been relatively steady growth year-over-year for technology teams in terms of adding more staff and not just filling existing vacancies across the US, he said.

help desk growth
Glad to head the tech sector is still in a growth phase. I had no idea so many tech industries were moving to Cincinnati or Charlotte. However it looks you are starting to see the top job that need to be filled in IT are the jobs that people don't enjoy doing and don't pay as well. Who wants to get a job in computers to work the help desk all day? sure you'll come away with some great stories about how incompetent some poeple are with computers, but when they make more than you do it could get annoying.
