Many IT workers open to changing jobs


More than one in three of Australia’s IT workers would change jobs if approached by a potential employer, according to newly published research.

According to the research by Clicks IT Recruitment, of 800 workers surveyed, 84% of them say they are open to changing jobs – a rise from 29% to 35% who would consider a change if approached.

But, there's actually has been a fall in the percentage of those expecting to look for a new job, from 57% to 49%, with many IT workers revealing a significant increase in confidence about the future of their employers since last quarter, with 56% feeling positive, up from 44%.

In line with this, the number of people - a mix of permanent employees and contractors - thinking they will lose their job has fallen from 61% to 51%, and those workers who are confident in keeping their jobs has also risen from 7% to 17%.

According to Clicks’ managing director Ben Wood a stronger job market is also perceived, with 16% of IT workers saying there are plenty of jobs, up from 11% last quarter.

“Overall, this quarter’s results tell us that optimism has improved from last quarter, most significantly in respondents’ perception of their employer’s future and their sense of job security.

“There has also been a small lift in optimism relating to the current job market and employment prospects. This improved confidence will encourage job seekers to enter the market, creating ideal conditions for employers seeking to attract high-calibre IT candidates.”

Now’s the Time for 400G Migration

The optical fibre community is anxiously awaiting the benefits that 400G capacity per wavelength will bring to existing and future fibre optic networks.

Nearly every business wants to leverage the latest in digital offerings to remain competitive in their respective markets and to provide support for fast and ever-increasing demands for data capacity. 400G is the answer.

Initial challenges are associated with supporting such project and upgrades to fulfil the promise of higher-capacity transport.

The foundation of optical networking infrastructure includes coherent optical transceivers and digital signal processing (DSP), mux/demux, ROADM, and optical amplifiers, all of which must be able to support 400G capacity.

With today’s proprietary power-hungry and high cost transceivers and DSP, how is migration to 400G networks going to be a viable option?

PacketLight's next-generation standardised solutions may be the answer. Click below to read the full article.
