Irvine Technology Corporation (ITC) is proud to be celebrating 15 years of client service.  We have decided that there is no better way to commemorate this milestone than with the launch of a new business service offering: ITC: Digital Creative Group.
ITC: Digital Creative Group (ITC: DCG) specializes in the placement of digital creative and marketing professionals on a freelance, freelance to hire and direct placement basis.
ITC: DCG is a direct response to the growing market place demand for digital creative talent and is a recognition of the contribution of digital creative professionals in the software development lifecycle.  It is the natural expansion of ITC's traditional IT and Engineering staffing and placement services.
Digital Creative Group is grounded in the traditional ITC customer centric philosophy, core values, and commitment to serve our clients. The launch of Digital Creative Group enables our team to more holistically demonstrate those core principles through a more comprehensive staffing & solutions offering.
We appreciate your support and look forward to seeing you at our 15 year anniversary party.

The Fastest Growing States For Tech Jobs in 2015
Which states are adding technology jobs at the greatest rate? If you think the top of the list should be California, New York and Washington, you guessed wrong. The top three states, according to a new list of fastest-growing states for tech jobs: Minnesota, Utah and Nebraska. New York and California rank, but they are at Nos. 7 and 10 respectively. Washington, home to Microsoft, Amazon and Oracle's cloud technology center, doesn't make the top 15.

Why is Minnesota No. 1? Headquarters for big corporations like UnitedHealth Group, General Mills, 3M, U.S. Bankcorp, and Target, it's also known as "Medical Alley," because it's home to device companies like Medtronic, St. Jude Medical and Boston Scientific. All of those firms hire armies of tech workers. It also has an impressive number of fast-growing technology-specific companies like enterprise cloud software maker Code 42, supply chain management software firm SPS Commerce and JAMF Software, a firm that helps companies install and manage their Apple products. Earlier this month JAMF reportedly reached a deal with IBM to integrate Apple into IBM's cloud technology systems.

Employers Taking Longer Than Ever To Fill Jobs
It's taking companies longer than at any time in the last 15 years - maybe even  longer than ever - to fill a job.

Two recent reports on hiring put the average time from vacancy to offer at more than four weeks. And both studies - one from Glassdoor and the other from career site publisher DHI Group - say the time to fill is getting longer.

In the midst of a national recovery that has seen the unemployment rate go from a high of 10.1% to 5.3% in June, while the labor force continues to contract, Glassdoor found hiring time went from 12.6 days in 2010 to 22.9 days at the end of 2014.
