Tech Job Scene Improving Incrementally

Susan Hall

This TechFlash piece echoes blogger Ann All's assessment about improvements in the job scene for 2010.


It quotes Charlie Rudd, CEO of technology consulting and staffing firm SolutionsIQ Corp., which fills jobs at companies such as Microsoft and T-Mobile, saying:

It's not a huge change, but it's a noticeable change.

A hopeful sign: There are more program- and project-management jobs being advertised. Those jobs often are filled before the rest of the staff who will work on the projects.


A separate piece notes that Amazon, which just reported a whopping profit, has been hiring all along. It reported 24,300 full-time and part-time employees at the end of 2009, compared with 20,700 at the end of 2008.


Meanwhile, Microsoft, which reported a big boost from Windows 7, laid of 5,300 people in 2009, more than expected, reports InfoWorld. A year ago, it announced plans to lay off 5,000.
