Forty-nine percent of IT employers said their company changed its business direction as a result of the recession. The majority of these employers kept their core business, but added new revenue streams. Twelve percent of those who shifted business direction reported they changed their core business altogether or expanded into areas that will eventually become their core business.

Technology is one of the strongest areas for hiring this year as many IT employers expect to add more headcount in 2011 than they did in 2010. CareerBuilder’s annual IT hiring forecast reveals that two-in-five (42 percent) of IT employers plan to increase the number of full-time, permanent employees this year, the highest among all industries surveyed. This is up from 32 percent who said the same last year. CareerBuilder’s national annual IT hiring forecast was conducted among more than 170 IT employers between November 15 and December 2, 2010. 

“The hiring outlook for IT is encouraging for 2011 as companies plan to harness technology to drive innovation and cut costs,” said Eric Presley, Chief Technology Officer for CareerBuilder. “Stronger IT hiring trends are expected this year as demand for qualified IT talent is high and some companies facing a labor shortage in the area.”
