The IT job market has its ups and downs. Right now for Atlanta IT services firm DynaSis, the market is decidedly up, as it is letting the world know that it is looking for top talent. In fact, the company hopes to land some real rising stars.
“As a firm whose mission is to help businesses develop, implement and maintain cutting-edge technology platforms and solutions, DynaSis seeks staff that is the best and brightest,” explained DynaSis president and founder Dave Moorman. “We encourage our employees to grow their talents and challenge them to sharpen their creative problem-solving skills.”
DynaSis isn’t alone in seeking talent.
According to tech job site Dice, “nearly two-thirds (64 percent) of hiring managers and recruiters say that their companies or clients will likely add new technology workers in the first six months of the new year. In a comparable study of hiring managers and recruiters that recruit for many roles, just 47 percent anticipated adding staff to start 2013.”
That’s good news for IT pros, bad news for hiring managers.
The other bit of good news is that IT pros, with hiring companies such as DynaSis, have an opportunity to switch from in-house IT to services. And while the IT market is holding up nicely, as the cloud and managed services continue to take hold, there is no telling what the future holds.
Good IT pros are clearly in the driver’s seat, Dice says.
“Once a candidate is identified, 53 percent of hiring managers and recruiters said candidates are asking for more money, as compared to six months ago. And, more than one-third (39 percent) of technology hiring professionals said they are seeing more counteroffers than in the previous six months. Those factors combined appear to be impacting recruiting, with 28 percent of hiring professionals noting they've experienced an increase in technology professionals rejecting job offers in the last six months,” the company found.
Rolling Out the Red Carpet
DynaSis hopes to be an attractive place to work, claiming it has an entrepreneurial environment, supports flex-time and telecommuting, and pays for training, a critical factor in an IT pro’s career trajectory.
“DynaSis enjoys a long track record of hiring top talent, who are drawn to our work environment and corporate culture as well as the opportunities we offer for professional growth,” said Moorman. “The IT world is incredibly exciting right now, with new technologies debuting almost daily. DynaSis stays on the leading edge of IT, and that is exactly where we and our employees want to be.”
