TechServe Alliance’s State of the Industry Survey
The State of the Industry survey provides access to insights on the state of the industry straight from the source: owners and executives of IT & engineering staffing and solutions firms. Each month, we survey our membership to provide timely data on current market conditions and critical industry topics. These two monthly surveys—one focused on IT and one on engineering—are available to members only.
Members who complete the survey will receive the survey results:
- State of the Industry: View a chart displaying the growth or contraction of IT staffing activity over the past 1, 3 and 12–month periods. As well as the TechServe Alliance IT & Engineering Perm Hire Index measuring the state of perm placement activity. These results will be reported on a regional basis where a sufficient number of firms from the region complete the survey.
