From a completely practical standpoint, people view full-time employment as a safer option than temporary jobs, but where these jobs are is shifting. In 2016, there will be a greater emphasis on full-time STEM employment than in years past.

According to a survey from CareerBuilder earlier this year, 31 percent of people are looking to create and work in full-time STEM jobs, up from 26 percent in 2014. Not only are IT jobs becoming more popular with prospective employees, they are also becoming more readily available in 2016.

The same survey also adds that IT ranks among the top five areas for employment growth, and is expected to account for 26 percent of all employment by the end of this year. This is good news for both employees and employers who are looking to have specific IT roles at existing companies filled.

A majority of employers — 56 percent — plan to transition at least some of their temporary and contract workers to full-time positions by the end of this year. The idea behind this is to make them an increased part of the company, so that they have a vested interest in their employer’s continued success, as opposed to being an outsider looking in. This increases confidence in both the worker and the organization.
