Toronto is the second best city in North America to find an IT job, according to a new survey released by international IT staffing company Modis
. As the Modis survey highlights, Toronto's top hiring industries—from financial services, to government to consulting firms—all require IT specialists.
"As the economy continues through its recovery and corporate earnings show signs of improvement, companies across North America are reinvesting in IT projects that had been put on hold during the recession. Modis, a leading provider of information technology staffing, has identified a list of the top 12 cities to find IT jobs today, with Houston taking the top spot on the list for the second year in a row."
"The rankings are based on internal data from Modis' branch network across the US and Canada. The list shows the cities with highest potential for IT job growth in the coming year based on the volume of job openings over the past six months, as well as general assessment of the overall economic environment in each market."
"Toronto came in second on the list, in part due to its position as the fourth largest IT market in North America. Home to many Fortune 500 companies, it is also the third largest financial center in North America next to New York and Chicago. Fittingly, the top industries hiring in this city are financial services, government, and systems integrators and consulting services. Project management, Java development, and SAP or CRM experience are the skills most in demand."
