IT professionals became even more critical workers when the coronavirus pandemic hit. As millions of companies were forced to have their employees work from home, the need for IT support sharply increased. These professionals had to create a successful remote framework with secure infrastructure to ensure a seamless transition from on-site to remote work. Employees working from home required reliable connectivity to replace meetings with video conferencing, conferences with webinars, and conversations with instant messages. These are a few reasons why IT professionals became more crucial than ever.
Here are some of the IT jobs that became in-demand because of the coronavirus pandemic:
Network and Systems Engineer
With millions of companies expanding their networks so their employees could work remotely, they needed proper support to ensure operations continued. Computer support specialists, help desk technicians, technical support engineers, and other tech support staff were also required to support remote workers.
Companies hired software developers, project managers, and senior software developers to create the necessary software for employees working from home.
With a substantial number of employees working remotely came a sharp spike in the need for cybersecurity professionals. This included rising demand for cybersecurity managers to create skilled security teams.
Since remote workers rely on the Cloud to complete their work, cloud engineers were a critical part of business operations. Technical roles such as Oracle Specialist and User Interface Designer also were in high demand.

The current state of the world means new positions are being created and unanticipated needs are being met. As a result, companies have had to rapidly adjust to these changes, including additional or reduced staffing, safety protocols, and new business lines. More organizations are reopening and determining the most effective way to do business in a pandemic.
When looking at your own company, you evaluate your needs and determine the best way for everyone to get back to work, as well as what hiring should look like for your IT positions. With so many areas still uncertain, moving to a contingent staffing approach may be the right choice for you.
Meet your specific IT needs
When evaluating your own IT needs, you recognize the kind of talent needed, yet you’re often required to focus more on generalities for the budget. With a contingent IT staff person, you can find the help you need, so an important project can be completed without having to find room for a new position in the budget.
Control the contract
Since you set the terms, you determine exactly what you want an IT professional to do and the length of time with your organization. This eliminates any uncertainty and prepares your new hire for what to expect. Another benefit is you can offer the option to move from contract to permanent. If you feel their skills and work ethic align with your company’s, they can be hired on a full-time basis.
Offer support faster
A contingent offer increases the speed with which you will get the IT support you need. Vetting a person’s qualifications, experience, and general fit with your organization can take time, but you want to do it right. A contract worker does not carry the same kind of commitment. Plus, IT staffing agencies exist with a bench of talent waiting for you to choose from for your company.
Partner with a firm dedicated to IT staffing
Agencies dedicated to IT can fill your needs faster. By sourcing and vetting candidates, they have the right person waiting when you have a need. Instead of locating and interviewing yourself, you get the potential hire delivered to you, and all you need to say is yes or no.
