Demand for IT professionals will always outpace supply, said 69 percent of IT professionals surveyed by TEKsystems. And 56 percent believe that there is a shortage of IT professionals in the U.S.
IT professionals rank good pay as the best thing about their career field, followed by exciting, cutting edge work and sustainability of the field, according to the survey. Google, Apple, Microsoft, IBM and The Walt Disney Co. ranked as the top-five companies that IT professionals would like to work, mainly because of their cutting-edge technology and corporate culture/values.
“IT professionals are looking for more than a simple paycheck when choosing a job in their field, and prospective employers will continue to face stiff competition from other companies trying to recruit from the same pool of top IT talent,” said Jason Hayman, market research manager at TEKsystems. “Companies can ensure that they are attracting the best candidates for their IT staff by actively demonstrating their employee value proposition and understanding what is most important to IT workers.”
TEKsystems’ research reflects the views of more than 2,400 IT professionals across all industries.
