The technology sector remains a strong driver of employment in the United States, while the overall job market continues to stumble forward slowly. Despite some reports that small businesses are still relatively bearish on IT hiring, Dice's latest semi-annual hiring survey of 1,000 tech-focused hiring managers and recruiters, found nearly three-fourths of respondents plan to hire more technology pros during the second half of 2013 than in the year's first six months. The overall improving economic outlook has been a major motivating factor in the latest hiring push, according to IT career and employment site Dice. More than three in 10 respondents attributed their plans for increased hiring to the current economic climate in the U.S. The Midwest, West and East, including the Northeast, saw the biggest jumps in hiring intentions. "Each market has its own unique story, but it's just a good job market for technology professionals," Dice Senior Vice President Tom Silver said in a statement. Here's a look at key takeaways from the Dice report.
