Brilliant Q2 2018 Accounting, Finance & Information Technology Hiring Forecast

Since 2012, Brilliant, in partnership with Dr. Richard Curtin, Director, Surveys of Consumers, at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, Michigan, has been conducting a quarterly study on the hiring trends and business factors affecting the accounting, finance and information technology professions.

The comprehensive report includes proprietary data collected from human resources professionals and hiring managers responsible for hiring accounting, finance and/or information technology professionals within industries such as manufacturing, distribution, health care, consumer products, financial services, professional services, retail, real estate, insurance, technology, media, software, nonprofit organizations and others.

Open Positions and Hiring Plans Slated to Increase in Q2 2018 According to Latest Brilliant™ Study
Accounting, Finance and Information Technology professionals remain in high demand

AS WE ENTER THE SPRING SEASON, business operations are in full swing allowing hiring managers to determine if more manpower is needed for their teams. With unemployment at an all-time low, producing a tightened labor market, it’s encouraging to understand that businesses continue to report a high number of unfilled positions and increased plans to hire in Q2 2018 and beyond.

Last quarter, we saw 40 percent of businesses with accounting / finance openings and 28 percent with information technology (IT) vacancies. For the coming quarter, 37 percent of businesses are reporting unfilled jobs in accounting / finance, and 28 percent are reporting openings for IT. These numbers are relatively unchanged from last quarter.

The Brilliant Q2 2018 Accounting, Finance and Information Technology Hiring Forecast, produced in conjunction with Dr. Richard Curtin, Director, Surveys of Consumers, at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, Michigan, determines important hiring trends and economic factors affecting the accounting, finance and information technology professions. Close to 300 human resources professionals and hiring managers responsible for hiring accounting, finance and IT professionals within industries such as manufacturing, distribution, healthcare, consumer products, financial services, professional services, retail, real estate, nonprofits and technology, participated in the study, between Jan. 22, 2018, and Feb. 12, 2018.
