DAYTON, Ohio, July 31, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- While other industries are cutting back or delaying hiring decisions, Sogeti USA will have added approximately 650 IT professionals by the end of 2012. Sogeti, a leading provider of professional technology services, is currently looking to fill positions in each of their 7 practices: Advisory Services, Application Development with New Technologies, Business Information Management Services, Engineering Services, Infrastructure Management, Cloud & Security, Mobile Services and Testing Services.
In a recent poll conducted by a technology career services company, 73% of IT recruiters plan to increase hiring in the second half of 2012. Up 8 points from January*, Sogeti USA is seeing similar acceleration across 23 cities in the U.S.
"Finding a job in the IT industry has actually become extremely competitive for both new graduates and experienced IT professionals," said David Wade, Director of HR for Sogeti USA. "While more traditional industries are seeing a contraction, Sogeti USA is hiring and training professionals in new technologies every day."
With so many positions available, IT companies must offer competitive benefits packages to attract talent. At Sogeti USA, employees qualify for zero premium health care from day 1. Plus, Sogeti USA offers dollar-for-dollar matching in their 401K plan, along with aggressive vesting and profit sharing.
"We are focused on creating an environment where employees can not only thrive, but also become the best in the business," said Navin Goel, Sogeti USA CEO. "Our work-life balance is based on what employees are telling us in our annual survey, we provide up to $10,000 annually in tuition reimbursement and we encourage each of our consultants to continue their education with outside training and certification."
According to Gartner®, "the need to lower operating cost and access to resources are consistent drivers for the outsourcing of application services.**" This has certainly been the case for Sogeti USA. With their Flexible Capacity Model, Sogeti USA builds the foundation for a long-term local partnership with their clients—giving businesses the ability to scale up or down in the technologies they leverage to generate revenue, reduce costs, update existing software, or some combination of the three.
"Our people and their skills are always in demand," said Wade. "Not only do our consultants 'go to work' at some of the largest companies in the world, they also learn and use the newest technologies from our business partners, IBM, Microsoft and Oracle."
Sogeti USA has positions available across the U.S. in 23 local cities. Interested applicants can view job listings online at us.sogeti.com/careers.
