The December Dice Hiring Survey Special Report shows that the demand for tech professionals is increasing, in fact tech hiring goals for the first half of 2015 are record breaking. Respondents hit an all-time high with 75% of recruiters gearing up more tech professionals hiring in the first six months of 2015 than the last six months of 2014. The survey showed that 72% of companies plan to expand by greater than 10% in early 2015, again a record breaker for Dice.
“The year ahead looks bright for tech professionals. In high demand and with hiring managers looking to hire a substantial number of new hires, tech professionals really have strong negotiating power,” said Shravan Goli, President of Dice.
A recent Wall Street Journal and Visage International survey shows that small business owners are more optimistic about economic conditions in 2015. This latest survey found that approximately half of the business owners anticipate continued improving conditions which is up from last year’s response when only 38% expressed the same sentiment.
“The December results clarify the economic picture for 2015, and what we’re seeing looks very promising,” NFIB said in a statement. “We’ve been waiting a long time for this kind of activity, but it looks like small-business owners are finally shaking off the effects of the recession.”
