IT recruiters and IT staffing agencies have seen a recent surge in candidates flocking from a surprising place: Wall Street. As IT staffing companies attempt to fill IT jobs for IT managers, they find more and more applicants fleeing from the nadir of work-life balance that young finance professionals face.
These new IT consultants find that as they break their golden handcuffs, they find more flexible hours in the information technology field and more laid-back workplaces. They also find a hiring culture that is more dependent on IT recruiting companies and IT contractors, IT managers. Despite all of these differences, though, IT jobs seem to be equally as demanding as finance jobs. New IT contractors from the finance world must still bring their A game to work and their job hunts with IT recruiting firms.
