Demand for technology professionals is rising and is expected to remain strong through the end of the year. Companies continue to hire entry-level positions, but demand for mid- and senior-level positions also is increasing. Nearly 80 percent of 800 companies polled in a new hiring survey are increasing jobs in the second half of 2010, according to Dice Holdings. "Businesses seem to be gradually loosening their grip on the hiring process as the economy improves," says Dice Holdings CEO Scot Melland.

Technology job openings continue to lead the vacancies, according to a Conference Board report. "Computer and Mathematical Science occupations experienced the largest May gain, up 18,100 to 567,600, their highest level since October 2008, after a much larger April rise [of] 32,500," the report says. "The May gain reflects in part continued increases in demand for computer systems analysts and computer software engineers (applications)."
