DETAILS:  The current economic climate has changed the hiring landscape and
          IT has not been immune. Recent research by Veritude revealed that
          overall IT hiring decreased significantly between Q2 and Q4 of
          2008. Despite the corresponding timeframe's resulting increase in
          candidates, according to the research, finding qualified IT staff
          remained a top challenge.

          In this webcast, Hart and McCoy will look ahead to New England's
          2009 IT hiring landscape and examine how this region fared in
          comparison to the rest of the nation. Webcast attendees will
          learn about New England's most recent IT hiring trends, how IT
          staffing requirements have changed for 2009 and which IT
          positions and skills are in demand.
