Romanian IT companies prefer to assign additional tasks to existent employees than to hire new people who ask for high salaries, representatives of head hunting agencies and software companies told NewsIn.

The number of IT jobs rose only 27 percent in the first half of the year versus the same period in the previous, compared to the country average hike of the job offer of 86 percent, according to statistics from job search engine Best Jobs.

As many as 7,689 new jobs in the IT/software sector were registered in the first six months of 2008 on the Neogen website, another job offer provider, versus 6,043 jobs in the same period last year. Best Jobs offered 126,155 new jobs in the first semester, against 67,808 in the same period in 2007.

The average net salary for a junior programmer is of 1,200 - 1,300 euros per month, while an experienced one can earn up to 2,500 - 3,000 euros per month, according to data issued by software companies.

The representatives of head hunting agencies deem the net salaries for programmers are close to the Western ones, adding companies which plan to spread tentacles countrywide witness huge problems because of the lack of specialists in Romania.
