Chief information officers (CIOs) project an uptick in the hiring of information technology (IT) professionals in the third quarter of 2007, according to the Robert Half Technology IT Hiring Index and Skills Report. Seventeen percent of executives surveyed plan to add IT staff in the next three months and two percent foresee personnel cutbacks. The net 15 percent increase, the highest since the fourth quarter of 2001, is up three percentage points from the previous quarter's projection.

The national poll includes responses from more than 1,400 CIOs from a stratified random sample of companies with 100 or more employees. It was conducted by an independent research firm and developed by Robert Half Technology, a leading provider of IT professionals on a project and full-time basis. The company has been tracking IT hiring activity in the United States since 1995.
