The technology job market in Michigan is beginning to turn around and many positions are in strong demand, according to IT job board Dice.com."The IT market is the strongest I've seen in some time," Joy Goberville, regional managing director for the staffing firm Technisource, told the site. "Companies are hiring contract-to-hire as well as full time in a variety of technology positions."Dice says its job postings for Detroit last month showed nearly a 5 percent improvement over the previous month, and a 28 percent gain over 2009. The site also says a survey by Robert Half Technologies found that 80 percent of area companies felt confident about upcoming growth.Recruiters told the site that they are seeing the biggest increase in demand for web developers, networking specialists, and infrastructure workers. All of those positions have seen increasing demand across the country as more and more companies shift towards virtualization.Detroit was particularly hard hit during the recent recession and automotive bailouts, but has showed some marginal improvement overall. Bloomberg reports that jobless claims dropped in every part of the state last month, but that unemployment in Detroit still hovers near 14 percent.
