Hiring in the technology sector is gaining momentum, as nearly 50% of U.S. technology companies with a market value of more than $100 million boosted employment by more than half in the most recently reported two-year period—including such firms as Apple Inc., Google Inc., and Amazon.com Inc. Some small and mid-size businesses, meanwhile, increased payrolls by almost fivefold.
Amazon and Facebook Inc. each plan to add thousands of jobs in 2012, many in new satellite offices, while many other technology firms also are stepping up their recruiting. Job candidates who have engineering and technology-related skills are in higher demand than before, notes Jesse Harriott, senior vice president and chief knowledge officer at Monster Worldwide Inc.
