CIOs have big plans to hire for IT jobs in San Antonio, among other cities, according to a survey from Robert Half.

Nineteen percent of U.S. chief information officers (CIOs) surveyed recently plan to expand their information technology (IT) teams in the first six months of 2015, according to the newly released Robert Half Technology IT Hiring Forecast and Local Trend Report.

This is a five-point increase from the previous survey representing the third and fourth quarters of 2014.

About 67 percent of U.S. CIOs said it is somewhat or very challenging to find skilled IT professionals. This is a 6-point increase from the previous survey six months ago. Technology executives believe it is most difficult to find skilled talent in software development (20 percent), security (15 percent) and networking (14 percent).

Eighty-nine percent of CIOs reported being somewhat or very confident about their companies’ growth prospects for the first half of 2015.

According to 63 percent of CIOs, network administration is among the skill sets in greatest demand within their IT departments. Desktop support followed with 61 percent of the response and Windows administration at 57 percent.

Nearly a quarter (24 percent) of U.S. technology executives said they expect their companies’ IT budgets to increase in 2015.
