Ready to Rocket Class of 2008

Posted by Rob Lewis

Rocket Builders announced their 2008 Ready to Rocket list this morning at UBC Robson Square and it looks like their tagline "Tomorrow's Revenue Growth Leaders" is bang-on. According to Rocket Builder's Geoff Hansen, last years's list reported a median revenue growth rate of 75 per cent which blows away the overall IT sector growth rate of 5-6 per cent. This bodes well for the Class of 2008. Hansen also reported that the 2007 list accounted for 300 new hires collectively in BC last year which is a median employment growth rate of 22 per cent. Job hunters take notice, these companies should experiencing a headcount growth spurt in 2008 and will be looking for prospective employees.
