More Good News for Tech Workers

As predicted on The Recruiter back in January, the laws of supply and demand have once again driven up technology wages.  According to the Yoh Index of Technology Wages from Q1 of 2007, the hourly wage for high-impact technology workers was $31.80 in the middle of the quarter.  This figure is the highest documented by the Yoh Index of Technology Wages, since its inception in 2001.

So what does this mean for you?

The continued emergence of new technologies, such as Web 2.0 applications, SaaS and social networking, as well as growing tech trends in the pharma and clinical industries, means that the availability of tech jobs will continue to rise.  As a result, you should expect to see wage growth continuing through 2007.
