Chief information officers (CIOs) project a 16 per cent increase in the hiring of information technology (IT) professionals in the third quarter of 2001 – a 12-point decline from the prior quarter's forecast.

Eighteen per cent of technology executives plan to add staff during the next three months and two per cent expect cutbacks, according to RHI Consulting's quarterly
