Below is a recap of Xtra Effort client hiring activity for Q1 2013.
The data may help you with your own planning, or at least provide a comparison.
As a frame of reference, Xtra Effort clients are small to medium-sized enterprise-scale technology companies (products and services) that hire Sales, Sales Engineers, and Professional Services personnel throughout the USA.
- Hiring sales staff has increased among professional service companies. These companies are hiring because they are reaching their targets
- Cloud infrastructure, Big Data and BI companies are experiencing considerable growth and/or have significant funding for expected growth – hence hiring
- Hiring demand has increased in the Midwest
- Lots of young SaaS product companies continue to want to hire inside sales staff with 2 – 5 years of experience whom are responsible for the whole sales cycle in a virtual manner. Demand for this profile seems to be outstripping supply.
