Better times ahead?

Dramatic shifts in the candidate market could soon have organizations competing fiercely to attract and retain top talent

At Robert Half Technology, my colleagues and I are convinced that a fundamental shift is indeed taking place. In both our research and our everyday interactions with hiring managers and applicants, we see real evidence that the IT job market is increasingly being driven by the candidates themselves, though employers remain selective about whom they bring on board. CIOs and other IT hiring managers must acknowledge this shift, and modify their hiring and retention strategies accordingly.

Of course as a staffing agency, Robert Half has a vested interest in promoting this point of view. Nevertheless, it makes very pleasant reading.

Congrats to the Robert Half PR team for placing the story.
