Dot-com layoffs have had no impact on IT recruiting: survey

||Last Updated: 07/21/2003

Recent dot-com job cuts have not made it easier to recruit high-tech talent, according to a new survey of chief information officers (CIOs).

Seventy-eight per cent of executives polled said that cutbacks have had no impact on their recruiting efforts. Only 10 per cent of respondents said it is now easier to locate IT candidates.

The poll includes responses from 270 CIOs from Canadian companies with 100 or more employees. It was conducted by an independent research firm and developed by RHI Consulting.
