If you follow the US economy closely, you know that there hasn't been much to write home about - slow sales at retailers, weak growth on the manufacturing front, and a general decline in business investment over the past six months have been the standard. However, there is one trend that stands out among the rest - companies continue to hire at the fastest rate in the last 15 years. This upswing in hiring could be the result of many companies preparing for economic acceleration in the spring. The first few months of the year were likely held back by heavy snowfall, a climbing dollar, and a drop in oil prices that caused many companies in the U.S. Energy sector to head back to the drawing board. However, the addition of jobs has remained healthy. The unemployment rate has maintained a seven year low of around 5.5% with approximately 250,000 jobs added, which means labor markets continue to improve. Fewer jobless claims seem to indicate that companies are not laying off workers in droves. But even with this positive outlook on the job front, there is currently a huge shortage of top talent in the IT space. If your company has been struggling to hire that ideal candidate that will bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to a frenetic and fast paced tech market, you need the right partner by your side to ensure that the process goes smoothly and does not drag on for months.
