The volatility of the stock market, slumped real estate market, and rising oil prices, among other economic downers, seem to be the root of the worry.
But officials who are closer to the hiring scene, including executives at staffing firms, say the fear doesn't match the reality of what's happening in the workplace, especially for techies. They say employers are still going ahead with IT hiring plans.
Is there disconnect between emotion and reality in the workplace regarding what things are "really like" right now? Is your company making at quick moves to change IT hiring or project plans because of economic uncertainty?
Let me know.
