IT and Technical Job Market Trends for 2012

In 2012, 14 percent increase in job placements or assignments are anticipated, according to some excerpts from their upcoming Job Market Intelligence Report for 2012, recently released by ExecuNet. We have already witnessed that today the number of technology-related positions in the healthcare and manufacturing segments have grown immensely. Therefore, it’s quite obvious that the Top 3 growth industries or sectors are estimated to be Healthcare, Technology, and Manufacturing, reports Stephen Van Vreede on Secrets of the job hunt Website.

Besides, a 2012 computer world survey highlights that nearly 30 percent of respondents in the survey expect to increase technical staffing during this summer. Mainly the focus is anticipated to be in the fields of application development, project management and business analysis, technical support for new mobile platforms, networking and data center management for virtual and cloud-based solutions, business intelligence (BI) and data analytics, IT/network security, and unified communications.

For the upcoming year it is a very good indication for low- and mid-level IT and technical professionals. Amongst candidates with executive levels, 52 percent thought on a job switch over the past 12 months.
