Computer Specialists with Mobile Developer Skills in Demand in 2011

New York, NY (PRWEB) August 08, 2011

Over the past 90 days, more than 33,000 new jobs were advertised online for Computer Specialists with mobile skills, according to WANTED Analytics™ (, the leading source of real-time business intelligence for the talent marketplace. With a rising number of companies developing mobile applications and mobile-friendly websites, hiring demand has increased 76% since the same 90-day period in 2010 and 33% since the beginning of the year.

Web Developers were the most common occupation to require these mobile skills, with more than 8,600 jobs advertised online. Computer Software Engineers are also highly demanded, with recruiters placing more than 7,900 new online job ads that included requirements for mobile skills. Other Computer Specialist occupations that saw high volumes of job ads over the 90-day period were Computer Systems Analysts, Computer Support Specialists and Software Quality Assurance Engineers and Testers.

Recruiting conditions will be moderately difficult across the US, since Computer Specialists are highly in demand. However, recruiters will experience varying degrees of difficulty sourcing for specialists with mobile skills based upon the available talent supply in each location. For example, Recruiters in New York placed the highest volume of ads over this 90-day period. According to the Hiring Scale™, there are approximately 8 potential candidates in the New York workforce per job ad. In comparison, the talent pool in the city with the third highest demand, San Francisco, consists of about 13 potential candidates per job ad over this period. Since their talent pool is relatively larger, recruiters there are likely to experience easier conditions when sourcing candidates for open positions.

The Hiring Scale measures conditions in local job markets by comparing hiring demand and labor supply. The Hiring Scale is part of the WANTED Analytics platform that offers business intelligence for the talent marketplace.
