The CEO of Janco Associates, Inc., Mr. M. Victor Janulaitis said, “The economic picture has created a positive outlook for job growth in general and  Information Technology in particular. However, we are now seeing both an increase in attrition rates within the IT function and a number of positions that remain unfilled because qualified candidates cannot be found.  This is causing CIOs and HR department to re-think both existing salary pay rates and the salaries that are being offered to potential employees."
