TechServe Alliance IT & Engineering Staffing Dashboard™

For more than three decades, TechServe Alliance has been a leader in providing objective data-driven insights for IT & engineering staffing firms. Given the growing importance for real-time market intelligence in these uncertain times, TechServe Alliance has launched a new monthly IT & Engineering Staffing Dashboard™ survey in collaboration with CEIPAL - its latest Diamond Sponsor.

  • IT & Engineering headcount stabilized in June and July (up 1% and 0.2%, respectively) after dropping March through May.
  • While improved from its low point in April, New Job Orders are down 29.1% from Pre-Pandemic levels foreshadowing ongoing headwinds in the coming months.
  • On a positive note, clients have been holding on to consultants with the stop rate declining to 4.9% -- below levels seen before the onset of COVID-19.
  • With fewer reqs to fill and available recruiter capacity, fill rates have increased since April and stand above pre-covid levels rising to 19%.
  • While Direct Hire dropped precipitously consistent with the pattern of past downturns, it has shown surprising growth in June and July.
