According to a study released today, the number of IT contract jobs grew by over 4% in Q2 2009, continuing a growth trend that started in Q4 2009. Corp-Corp.com, an online IT consulting marketplace, conducted the study from March 1 through June 30, 2009.
Corp-Corp.com compiled this data by analyzing over 150,000 IT jobs posted by over 750 companies across the United States. The full report can be found at http://www.corp-corp.com/press-release/Market_Report_2009_Q2.htm.
“One of the best arguments for the longevity of the current economic rebound is temporary hiring,” said Prabakaran Murugaiah, CEO of Corp-Corp.com. “Many companies that cut back to bare bones staff during the worst of the recession are now beginning to hire contract workers.”
According to Murugaiah: “Full-time, regular employment may not pick up until corporate management believes there is sustainable growth in the US economy, but they continue to be willing to spend on contract positions, and our analysis projects growth of at least 6% in Q3 2009.”
