CV Screen, the reputed UK based IT employment agency reported that there is a sharp rise of registered IT vacancies in Q2, 2010 compared to Q2, 2009. The company witnessed an increase of 47% jobs during Q2 period this year compared to the same period last year. Additionally, the number of candidates per role dropped from 295 to 187 during the same period, a decline of 36%.
The drop of applicants per role indicates that the people are more selective to choose their role during application. The company further says that the applicants are emphasizing more on career prospects and training that a role offers, rather than just the financial rewards. The finding continued that IT job market is rising back to the pre-recessive level because more applicants are leaving their role out of choice.
“The drop in applications per role could well be a sign that IT professionals are being more selective in the roles they apply for. We have seen them place more importance on career prospects and training that a role offers, rather than just the financial rewards,” commented CV Screen’s Matthew Iveson.
The agency concluded that the first half of 2010 is the key period for economic recovery. The company is hopeful that second half of 2010 will continue to be encouraging.
