Fall 2017

While it’s never easy to say goodbye to summer, I do enjoy the “back to school/back to business” mentality of the fall months. It’s a time to determine what we need to do to meet our goals for the year, and for many of us those goals include hiring.

In the spirit of “back to business” and a focus on hiring goals, this issue of PSCI's IT Industry Rundown includes valuable tips and business insights for helping to improve your tech hiring outcomes. We’ve included the traits of a good tech hire, the importance of a strong employer brand, and innovative IT hiring strategies.

I hope you find these insights helpful in your hiring efforts. Please conne
