IT Salary Guide 2014
Quote:
My favorite part of this year’s Robert Half Salary Guide – the source for these IT salary numbers – is the section advising companies on how to hire tech talent. The tone is decidedly aggressive.

Don’t wait to extend an offer, the Guide advises, “a delay of even a day or two can cost you.” Employers must make themselves attractive to talent, the Guide recommends. It’s not enough to offer an attractive salary and bonus package – firms must tell prospective IT hires about their other advantages, like flexible work arrangements or training options.

This nugget of advice is almost desperate: “Remain in touch while the applicant is considering the offer, and even after he or she accepts it, so you can reinforce your enthusiasm about this individual joining your firm.”
Yep, I'm thinking I need to start planning a move.

Yeah. The housing market hasn't recovered enough yet. I was counting on an appreciable improvement after Obama lost reelection. He's got 30 months, and I may very well be stuck here longer if some big government nincompoop takes over.
