Hiring in the TMT & Media sector is gaining momentum and 2012 is shaping up to be a huge year for internet businesses globally, as evidenced the recent IPOs (LinkedIn, Groupon, Yelp, Zynga, and more – including FaceBook at an expected $100BN+ value).
Tech companies are constantly looking for growth opportunities and finding new and innovative products. Facebook announced this week the launch of their smartphone apps and Google announcing their ‘Google wallet’, the application which allows credit card payment at terminals, estimated to be used by a billion people in the next 2 years.
The mobile market marketing industry has boomed in recent years, with analysts at Informa Media & Telecoms estimating market growth of 51% in 2011 to $5.3bn, so we are experiencing some real growth in this sector.
On the back of this, Alan Mitchell is seeing hiring trends, where TMT Associates are moving across to technology. It’s a relatively logical move for 1st year Associates.
