Polish up your resume?

A net 11 percent of chief information officers surveyed in a new study plan to add full-time information technology staff in the third quarter. That is the largest net percent of CIOs expecting to increase staff in three years, said the publisher of the study, staffing firm Robert Half Technology. Fourteen percent plan to add staff, while three percent anticipate personnel reductions, the company said. Eighty-one percent of survey respondents expect to maintain current staff levels.

"Businesses are showing increased optimism in their hiring plans, but they remain realistic," Katherine Spencer Lee, executive director of Robert Half Technology, said in a statement Thursday. "CIOs are carefully evaluating their key requirements and adding full-time staff only when they identify a long-term need for a particular position or skill set. In the interim, they are bringing in project professionals to help core staff address short-term workload spikes and move ahead with select initiatives."
