Next Tech Job Market to Remain a Bright Spot in 2013-4 Next

Asked if the time to fill open technology positions had changed compared to last year, more than half the respondents (55 percent) said it had lengthened (including 16 percent who labeled the change "substantial"). Accounting for the slower hiring process, nearly half the hiring managers (47 percent) pointed to an inability to find qualified applicants, while another third (33 percent) cited a desire to wait for "the perfect match."

The job market for technology professionals has been a bright spot amid what economic-types typically have termed a modest recovery. That "bright spot" status should remain true into 2013, according to more than 1,000 technology-focused hiring managers and recruiters surveyed by Dice.
