Aug. 17, 2011 - PRLog -- Corporate Canada is ready to hire IT personnel, according to the newly released report conducted by Kovasys Inc. The IT recruitment company with offices in Toronto and Montreal held an annual survey of their clients, that over thirty CEOs, managers, and directors from the provinces of Quebec and Ontario responded to. More than 91% of these employers said that their firms' IT department (system administrators, technical support, developers, etc.) will increase over the next year while only 52% of companies say they are facing IT shortage that restricts their ability to meet demand. The IT market is usually the first one to rebound before the full recovery of the economy.

Businesses with IT departments are confident and ready to hire. "The market has gotten extremely hot," says Alex Kovalenko, Director of Operations at Kovasys. "Canada and especially Montreal and Toronto are coming back to the days when IT candidates have two or three job offers," he says. Most of the time in the past few years Kovasys was asked to find only one employee to replace another when needed. Now companies are asking for full teams of employees. Canada is optimistic and willing to take on the risk of hiring new employees. Hiring at this magnitude is exactly what the economy needs at this point in time. Companies are no longer concerned about the risks involved, and are ready to move forward into a fully recovered economy with talented staff.

IT professionals have no need to take the first job opportunity that comes along, or worse, find no opportunities at all. Many attending job fairs and recruiting events are getting more than one job offer and weighing their options before making a decision, a luxury that didn't exist just last year. The economy is beginning to return to a healthy state.
