IT Temps in High Demand

For the last six months, the news has been filled with stories about the increasing demand for temporary workers. Nationally, more than 3 million people are employed by staffing companies every week according to the American Staffing Association (ASA). In fact, the demand for temporary workers is returning to levels not seen since 2006, and show little sign of slowing down over the next quarter.

While the demand for temps is hot, the demand for IT temps is even hotter. On an almost daily basis, I get calls from clients looking for interim and project contract-employees with experience in software and application development or programming in popular languages. This environment creates a new set of operating guidelines for employers as well as IT consultants and IT contract employees.

Here are a few operating guidelines to help employers and candidates succeed in this new paradigm - which could be here to stay!

Employers need to:

  • Act very quickly on candidates that are of interest;
  • Define the duties you need performed and have a clear understanding of exactly the skills and time investment you’ll need;
  • Put thought into the work environment you provide, and ensure it is a good experience;
  • Build rapport with your IT temporary workers to ensure they accept future assignments with your organization.

IT professionals can:

  • Find companies and projects that align with your professional or personal interests;
  • Select from among multiple offers, circumstances, and roles;
  • Work as frequently as you’d like, often naming your own hours and schedule;
  • Command a highly competitive hourly rate.

With IT unemployment remaining below 3% in much of the country, most employers will need to develop a plan to find and retain temporary employees in the technology fields. Forming a strategic relationship with a staffing firm is the fastest way for employers to find the right temporary employees. A reputable staffing firm has strong relationships with a broad-range of talented and pre-qualified candidates. Your search time will be reduced; effectively saving you money, time, and training hours on the job.
