IT Jobs Market: What's Out There And How To Grab It


A Changing IT Job Landscape

IT job growth has been heating up in a number of cities across the U.S. In a recent interview, VAR Staffing, a Richardson, Texas-based VAR consultant agency that specializes in IT channel recruitment and staffing, spoke with CRN's Scott Campbell about how Hurricane Sandy has spurred a hiring spike in which many VARs that had previously been on the fence about bringing on more full-time staff have decided to take the hiring plunge.

As part of CRN's new series examining hiring trends and job growth in the IT channel, we followed up with VAR Staffing experts Mark Bier, founding principal, and Todd Billiar, director of channel recruitment, to dig a little deeper into the IT job landscape. And, so far, the IT channel's job growth is getting better every day. "Top talent has never been in greater demand," Bier said.

From internships and contract work to permanent part-time and full-time positions, Bier and Billiar not only offer insight into these trends but also provide advice for IT job seekers on what they can do to land the type of job they want.
