Arizona’s Booming Job Economy Drives Need for IT Consultant Recruiting Solutions

Canyon Staffing

As hard as it may be to believe, the Arizona job market is showing signs of growth and expansion. Like most of the country, Arizona’s economy took a significant hit in 2020 due to COVID-19’s impact. However, recent reports suggest that local markets are recovering. In a January 2021 KTAR.com article, Chris Camacho, president and CEO of the Greater Phoenix Economic Council, offered several encouraging statistics.

In the post, Camacho noted that in 2020, the global pandemic resulted in over 214,000 jobs lost in the Valley. However, by January of 2021, approximately 170,000 (roughly 80%) jobs have been recovered — a trend that Camacho believes is likely to continue through year's end. According to Camacho, the increasing number of recovered jobs, coupled with an additional 245 companies potentially investing in the Greater Phoenix region, could mean a revival that will likely “outpace 2019 numbers.”

Technology Companies in Greater Phoenix Region May Struggle to Find Talent

A booming job market is excellent news for business owners and employees alike in the Phoenix area. However, Arizona’s corporate leaders, particularly those at technology-centric organizations, are already experiencing the hiring challenges that come with a more robust local economy. The surge in open opportunities directly translates into a rapidly-diminishing talent pool, making it increasingly difficult for Phoenix business leaders to source and vet viable candidates. As a result, hiring managers, HR professionals, and corporate executives throughout the region are leveraging the power of an IT staffing agency to support their expanding operations.

How an Experienced Technology Staffing Firm Locks in Your IT Team

An innovative technology staffing firm can offer Phoenix business owners struggling to fill open positions several distinct advantages, including:

Fast Access to Talent
Arizona’s booming job market often means that Phoenix hiring managers will quickly deplete their own professional networks when sourcing qualified candidates. An innovative IT staffing firm instantly expands your reach, connecting you to leading technical professionals to keep your search moving forward quickly.

Seamless Transition to Remote Environment
Many area companies have embraced remote work environments for employees. However, their quest to “go digital” has demonstrated an increased need for an IT team to help with remote support and troubleshooting. An IT staffing and cybersecurity recruiting firm can connect your organization with experienced technical professionals capable of safely transitioning and supporting your remote environments.

Go Beyond Available IT Professionals
Skilled software recruiting professionals recognize that it’s not about finding the best available candidate — it’s about finding the best possible candidate. An experienced staffing firm knows how to source passive candidates who have the talent you’re looking for but may not be actively searching for a new opportunity (yet).

Save Time and Resources
Most importantly, working with an IT staffing and cybersecurity recruiting firm can prove a valuable resource for employers in the Phoenix region who simply don’t have the time or resources to dedicate to finding talent amid a booming job market. Your chosen recruiting team can give your open opportunities the attention they deserve, so you and your team can focus on core competencies and meeting consumer demand.
