Next 2013's Highest and Lowest Recruiting Priorities-8 Next

Every process, every product is only as desirable as it ranks high in quality. QA-related job postings remain plentiful on Dice as 2013 begins. The moral to the story: Right now if you’re an QA professional, even in places where the job market might look relatively tougher, it’s still pretty good.

With tech hiring on a steady growth path during the first half of 2013, companies and recruiters say they have a virtually unchanged set of hiring priorities for the year. But, there is one new entrant that didn't even make the top 10 list last year – data analysts or analytic talent.

While every employee potentially adds value to a company, not every skillset is the same. A simple, intuitive rule of thumb, as evidenced by responses from the nearly 1,100 tech-focused hiring pros recently surveyed by Dice: The less evolved the set of skills, the less experienced the employee, the lower on the priority list when it comes to hiring in the tech department.

This slideshow features 2013's five highest tech hiring priorities, as well as five low-priority hires for the year, as identified by Dice.com.
