Strong growth of IT contract jobs and other staffing trends in Q2

Seems like all we hear about in the news is gloom and doom when it comes to the job market, but Agile’s 2Q 2011 Market Pulse has some positive findings!  Metro Atlanta IT employment is gaining momentum, and it appears IT employers are more confident about the future as an increase in IT hiring (perm and contract) continued during the second quarter of 2011.

In our latest issue of Market Pulse, you may be surprised at some of our findings including:

  • The number of IT contractors placed by Agile is up 62% from Q2 2010.
  • Open contract positions grew 75% from Q1 2011.
  • Perm placements were up 10% from the last quarter, and over 50% from a year earlier.
  • Searches for perm placements increased 42% over Q1 2010.
  • Agile’s recent drop in time-to-fill for contract assignments indicates our solid network of top IT professionals.
