Updated Denver Job Market Tips

Toni Fleming, a recruiter with Manpower Professional, has seen an increase in orders for contract workers, but a decrease in searches for full-timers. "All the jobs I see companies creating are geared toward creating organizational efficiencies," says Fleming. The skills her clients seek include development in SharePoint and .NET, network engineers, helpdesk support, and non-traditional jobs such as designers who specialize in Web-based training applications.

Brian Taylor, a managing director with Technisource, reports an increase in job orders for Java Weblogic, project managers and business analysts. Much of his business is coming from the telecommunications and healthcare industries. "I would say the end of the year was slow," observes Taylor. "We had 20 percent fewer hot job requirements in December compared to November. But in January, we doubled the number of job requirements compared to November."

George Denlinger, regional vice president in Robert Half Technology's Denver office, also has seen an increase in job orders. "We saw sequential month-over-month growth in November and December," he says. "We hadn't seen sequential, month-over-month growth for the entire year."

Denver is America's eighth-best city for job seekers, and Colorado ranks No. 8 among the states, according to job search engine

Juju's "Job Search Difficulty Index" is based on the ratio of jobless workers in a given market to job openings advertised online.
