Contract IT Jobs on the Rise in 2013

CareerBuilder recently reported that temporary hiring is expected to reach a six-year high in 2013. The market’s inability to keep up with demand for skilled labor is mostly to blame. This shortage of workers means 40 percent of employers plan to hire temporary and contract workers in 2013, up 12 percent since 2009.

Temp positions can often be the best of both worlds for employers and contract workers alike. Employers can test the waters with new employees at minimal risk and budgetary constraint, while temp workers can experience the company culture and duties of their positions on more of a trial basis to determine if they really love a job. Even better news for job candidates: 42 percent of employers hiring temporary workers plan to transition some temp positions to full-time jobs over the following 12 months.
